On Windows Server 2003 x64 I had a drive volume become temporarily unavailable (an external iscsi storage device). In the course of troubleshooting I rebooted the machine, and the external volume did become available again until after the reboot. Now the shares I had pointing to the external volume are no longer available. The registry shows the missing shares and their permissions. How do I get them back?
I would like to avoid recreating them as new shares as it will be some work to apply the various permission levels to each.
This is what "Computer Management > Shared Folders" shows now (system shares omitted):
Maps E:\maps Work E:\Work
and it should be:
Maps E:\Allofit\maps Work E:\Allofit\Work Archives G:\Archives Warehouse G:\Warehouse
And here are the registry entries for the missing shares (hex values omitted):
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\lanmanserver\Shares] "Archives"=hex(7):43,00,53,00,43,00,46,00,6c,00,61,00,67,00,73,00,3d,00,30,00,00,\ ... 00,00 "Warehouse"=hex(7):43,00,53,00,43,00,46,00,6c,00,61,00,67,00,73,00,3d,00,30,00,\ ... 00,65,00,3d,00,30,00,00,00,00,00
