  • Add File Share Users (no Active Directory)

    Hi guys,

    I am going to be setting up a VERY basic Server 2008 server with file sharing.

    I have done this before and found that adding users (for permissions purposes) resulted in all the added users appearing on the 2008 "Welcome Screen" -- where I only really want Admin to appear.

    Is there a way to remedy this (or, more importantly, fix it in this up coming installation)?

    Thank you for taking the tme to read my (probably obvious) question

    Regards,


    atw

    If you dont need them to access the server locally, try this:

        I think this is what atw is refering to.
        Member Server with all the Users added so they can connect directly to the files without having to supply credentials. However he doesn't want the circled User Accounts (except Admin) to be displayed at the Logon Screen.
