How to get the VCO for Exchange Server 2007 CCR cluster ?

I'm in the middle of migrating my FileShare Witness migration by using this URL:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb676490(v=exchg.80).aspx

Open in new window


but I'm stuck in this command:

net share <shareName>=<Directory> /GRANT:<VCO>,FULL

Open in new window


How can I get the value for the <VCO> ?

Hello,

The VCO is the computer name of the cluster, You would have chosen this when you built the cluster and it appears in Failover and Cluster Management.

You can use either step 1 or step 2. I recommend you use the GUI, which is step 1.

When going through the KB article, should I go with the following steps:

1. To create and secure a file share for the Node and File Share Majority quorum
steps 1 until 3

2. To use Cluster.exe to configure a Node and File Share Majority quorum
steps 1 until 5

is that correct ?

Hi jjmck,

Thanks for the reply, so the steps one only ?
No command line involved at all ?

You can do either GUI or command line. Step 1 is GUI, step 2 is command line.

Thanks for the reply man,

I understand little bit more that I will need to go through the section "To create and secure a file share for the Node and File Share Majority quorum" steps 1 until 3

and then follow the GUI steps in "To use the Failover Cluster Management tool to configure a Node and File Share Majority quorum" section.

but still how can I get the value of <VCO> so that I can complete the command:

net share <shareName>=<Directory> /GRANT:<VCO>,FULL
