Can you please help me out with this query?
We recently used DFS to replicate shares and folders from the old the file server which was 2003 and replicated them on a new file server 2008. All folders and permissions have been replicated.
I had a shortcut which was mapped to a direct folder on another department’s share. I only had access to that folder. I went to access this folder and in its properties I noticed that it was mapped to the old server.
I can access this folder/shortcut on the old server, but as soon as I map it directly to the new file server the following errors appear:
“This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel”
Please note that my work station is XP but as soon as I try to access the same shortcut on the new file server (2008) and workstation Windows 7 this message does not appear.
Any ideas please?
