Windows NT sharing

by PineappleBob In reply to Windows NT sharing

Are you trying to share the entire drive? If so, why? You should only be sharing specific folders or directories. Also, by default NT shares all drives as C$, D$, etc. These are hidden in the network neighborhood, yer connectable by any domain adminthrough \\servername\C$ for example. You must have groups and users defined and also give them access to those shares. Also check your network configurations that your clients are using same ip address scheme as the server etc.

Cheers

yes i know that but sharing is not even available for sharing. How do you fix this because on other machines it works fine and on this one it does not.

Well that is obvious but I need to know why that it will not start. Because when i go to services and start it. The server service will not start i have plenty of disk space and virtual memory and yet it still tells me not enough disk space. What isthe fix?

Has anything changed since SP5 was first installed? A lot of cases if the server service won't start, a re-install of the Sp will fix it.

I've seen issues like this before with the "not enought disk space" error. Usually, the cause has been the network card driver. Trying using a different compatible driver and see if that gets you anywhere.
