I have seen a lot of workarounds regarding this issue. For those who aren't aware, in Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7, when you share a folder it no longer has a unique icon in Explorer. It appears as the other folders do. All of the workarounds I have seen are for one-off scenarios where someone is trying to fix their own computer, there is no solution, which would be easy to implement on an enterprise network.
I'm wondering if anyone has tried to tackle this issue on a large scale and what they did.
As a comparison, I have well over 50 file servers in place, so doing something 50 times is not an option.
