use storage on another server

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by Mike Brearley, May 30, 2006.

  1. I have two Windows 2003 servers. One is 2003 Standard, the other is 2003
    Standard x64 Edition. I want to be able to use file space on the x64 system
    from the other server (having system processes that are logged in as system
    be able to create log files and such).

    How can I do this? I tried DFS, but it doesn't seem to be working and
    remote storage doesn't appear to be part of standard edition.

    I'm sure there's something simple that I'm missing.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Mapped network drives use the currently logged in user to authorize to the
    disk. I need something that can use the storage on the other file server
    without a user logged in (i.e. to allow services and such to use it).

    Posted 'as is'. If there are any spelling and/or grammar mistakes, they
    were a direct result of my fingers and brain not being synchronized or my
    lack of caffeine.
