I have a Windows 2003 Server VM named "nas01" that has a Shared Folder called "IT" on it, which is shared via File Server Management.
It basically holds some files or ISOs for folks in a security group to access, and people map to the \\nas01\IS share from their Windows clients.
Since I'm trying to get rid of this 2003 server and this share is on a virtual disk, how could I move the disk to another server and keep the mapping?
Would the approach be to somehow unmount the virtual disk that has this partition on it, then mount it to another server that's running Windows? Target server would be a 2008 or 2012.
If so, not sure the best practice here on moving the disk, and how I could maintain the mapping without having to re-map. Perhaps I don't maintain the mapping and just reconfigure a group policy to take care of it.
There's also a ".vSphere-HA" folder on this share and I can't open it, says access is denied. I'm not sure if that's a folder that's being used by some component in vSphere or vCenter for anything. Does that look familiar?
Thoughts, suggestions, experiences?
