I need to add shares to the SBS 2011 Remote Access Web site.  Problem is the shares I need to add are located on another server, same lan.

I can't find a work around.

Remote Web Access will not support Shares on another server

I found this article,

but not sure where to make the update.  When I change the line, it error's out because I think the config sections must also reference the new path?  Thoughts

The article has been around for a long time.   If you are not familiar with IIS and web.config files, you can screw things up big time, so always have a copy of the original somewhere.

It's not supported by MS

So here's the line from the website

Let's say Server1 is your SBS box, called sbs.domain.local    Server2 is an file server called FS1.domain.local and Server3 is an accounting Server called acctg.domain.local

On the SBS box you want to share "usershares" and on Server2 you have a share called Pictures and Server three you have Share called Finance.

So you would have \\sbs.domain.local\usershares;\\FS1.domain.local\Pictures;\\acctg.domain.local
\Finance"    And ONLY these 3 shares would now show up in the main RWA Shares window.   If this does not make sense to you, then you should not pursue this or you should connect with a web Developer who understands editing the web.config file
