We currently have 2 users running Peachtree Accounting 2008.  It was installed in a multiuser format meaning that the DB engine and data reside on the server (I am assuming this since I never really touched peachtree).  Lets just say we have Workstation A and the server the data sits on is called ITSERVER01.  This has been a Windows 2003 server (used as a file server apps (so I thought) running off of it)....until recently.  I wasnt aware of these users running peachtree.  I have migrated the server to an EMC Celera NAS calling the server on the NAS the same thing.  Of course now when these users try to access Peachtree, they get the following error:

 PeachTree error at startup
My question is can you simply install the Peachtree DB engine on the local workstation while keeping the data on the server or do I need to remove Peachtree and set everything up again?  Trying to make this as painless as possible, but from my understanding, nothing about Peachtree is painless.  How do I get these users Peachtree working so I can keep the data on the NAS? I wish I knew about this before I moved everything.  Any thoughts?  thanks....
