Every time I reboot our Windows 2008 R2 server, shared folders are no longer shared. After every reboot, I need to RDC to the server, right click each folder I wish to share, then hit "Properties" and "Sharing." The desired share name is always intact, as are the proper permissions for Owner (always Administrator) and the appropriate R/W access I've previously set for groups and users. But the status shows as "Not Shared." If I press the "Share" button, it thinks for a while with the "This may take a few minutes" message, and then reports complete and the shares can be accessed from network clients again.
But on every reboot, I have to do this for every shared folder.
I've read about similar issues with iSCSI drives, but all the shares are on a Drobo connected to the server via FireWire and appearing as a local drive to the server (not iSCSI). I suspect the fact that the shares are on a Drobo are contributing to the issue, but I'm stumped as to where to start looking for a long-term fix, rather than a work-around.
Thanks in advance!
