MS File Server Migration Wizard question

    Hello all,

    I am going to be installing a W2K3 Server in an existing W2K domain and I
    would like to use the FS Migration Wizard to copy shared folders to the W2K3
    machine.

    One thing I have noticed is the old server has shared subfolders under
    shared folders. Example: \\oldserver\apps\users.

    I would like to maintain the same shared names on the new server as the old
    server.

    By default the new shares are created with a _oldservername at the end of
    the share name. I know I can change the root share before copying the
    shares, but have not figured out how to change the subfolders sharing so the
    _oldservername is not part of the new share.

    I'm not sure if there is some default setting that can be changed so the new
    shares don't display the _oldservername?

    Thanks,
    -Allen
