I looked on one of my 2003 servers - and this is what I found in help:
To share a drive or folder on the network
- Open Windows Explorer, and then locate the drive or folder you want to share.
- Right-click the drive or folder, and then click Sharing and Security.
- If you are sharing a drive, on the Sharing tab, click If you understand the risk but still want to share the root of the drive, click here.
- If you are sharing a folder, go to the next step.
- Do one of the following:
- If the Share this folder on the network check box is available, select the check box.
- If the Share this folder on the network check box is unavailable, this computer is not on a network. If you would like to set up a home or small office network, click the Network Setup Wizard link and follow the instructions to turn on file sharing. Once file sharing is enabled, begin this procedure again.
Argh... can't access a 2008 server from home right now. But I would imagine it's the same thing.
And I'm sure that's what you have done.
So you CAN access the optical drive from the server?
But cannot access the server's optical mapped V: drive from the clients?
I don't understand you statement, ".. but when i uninstall the device and refresh it,, it works well once i log off or switch the user it turn back to access is denied ." Would you be able to elaborate?
