Hi All,

I am trying to turn off a share on Win 2003 R2 Server but I get the error:

"Error 2321: The share must be removed from the Distributed File System before it can be deleted"

Can someone clarify?

Thanks

The share seems to be a DFS root - ostensibly set up in AD.  You'll need to run the DFS management tool to change or remove it.
