  17. drashna one last question can you remove the server from the domain and add back to the workgroup if its left in the domain client pc's pin code log in gets taken away and its a pain for my kids/wife I noticed when you instal its on the workgroup and only afterwards joins the domain
  18. ok all seems to be and running had to point my folders to their location of pool Z such a learning curve not to stop the client joining the domain seems the workarounds on the net allow the connector install and then after reboot the client is part of the domain
  19. thanks drashna superb service as normal internet side of things are now sorted seemed like loads of updates and reboots were needed yes its 2012 r 2 essentials I am using and this connector reshare seems to have done trhe trick Couldn't find that version anywhere on the site will do some testing today and thanks so much again
