Distribute Files with Windows Server 2003 SBS SP2

Hi there

I've tried to distribute files with the GPO on a Windows Server 2003 SBS SP2.
But it doesn't work or maybe i've used the wrong GPO.
I've also heared it is not possible to distrbute Files with Server 2003?

Hope you can help me

Cheers

Please clarify - how EXACTLY are you trying to distribute files?  What files are you trying to distribute?  Where on the client machines do you want them to do?

On the surface, I would do this via a script, but to know for certain I more specific details... what you've posted so far is fairly vague.

I want to distrbute it from a Folder on the Server C:\AAA\BB\C\data_name.txt to the same directory on each client.

Maybe you are right and its easier to spread this out with a Batch file, but this feature is in Window Server 2008 and theres much more comftable.

I'll repeat the question:
how EXACTLY are you trying to distribute files?

I've been working with Windows for 15+ years and I do not recall any such feature - but I may simply not be thinking about what you're talking about because I never use that feature... so if you could outline the steps you took - or where the setting in group policy is that you made, I would have a better understanding of what you're talking about.

Hi

Thanks for your Feedback.
I've used a Batch file to spread the files out. Think this was now the faster solution.
But thankg for the input that this is not possible with window server.

Thanks and Cheers
