Any help here would be appreciated.
Is it possible to view/map to volumes from Windows Explorer without having to share the volume?
I had created a new volume and was also asked to create a directory structure within the volume. The method used to achieve this was;
1. Create CIFS share to the root of the volume.
2. Map to new share from Windows Explorer, and create the required directory structure.
3. Create CIFS share to the new directory and confirm it is visible in Windows MMC console.
4. Delete the original volume share (created in step 1).
All works fine but I feel that there must be a way of mapping to volumes without having to share them first. Can someone enlighten me here?
