DFS name space set up error
Posted on 2013-06-27
am trying to create a DFS name space. I have already set up the share and the group permissions on it.
so when i try to create the name space, I get this error message below.
"a shared folder named"xxxxxx" already exists on the server. If the existing shared folder is used, the security setting specified within the edit settings dialog box will not apply. To have the shared folder created with those settings, you must first remove the existing shared folder.
Do you want to use the existing shared folder and its current security settings? "
I don't want to proceed and risk losing the security settings on the folder. It will take days to set those up again. So if anyone has seen this before, can you please provide some help?
thanks in advance.
