Hi,

Quite a long time ago, I used SharePoints to share my whole hard drive. The "long time ago" part means I don't exactly remember how I did it before, but probably using the easiest method available.

Now, I'm trying to unshare the full hard drive, but it doesn't show up anywhere in SharePoints as something that is shared. I tried to create it again under "normal" shares and disable sharing from there, but that doesn't work. I tried deleting all my shares from the top dropdown, but it still shows up.

Does anybody have an idea how to fix this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you logging in as a normal user or as an admin user to the server machine from the client machine?

Well, then you are seeing exactly what you should see. By default, when you connect as an admin user in Mac OS X, you are presented with a list of all of the hard drives. You can change this using SharePoints by going to the AFS Properties tab and then clicking the Admin is Normal User checkbox. This will cause Mac OS X to treat the admin user just like any other user when connecting to the Mac OS X machine from another machine.

Thanks mhorn. I'm sorry to bother you with such a trivial question, heh...

Is the behavior of SharePoints different when installed on Tiger Server?

I just upgraded my machine to Server from regular. Before, I would login as the admin and I would have the root-level of all hard drives.

Now, with the same sharepoints set up as before, and "Admin is Normal User" un-ticked, when I log in as admin, I get only the sharepoints and the user's local home. The same result with non-admin users.

Is there a way to share both the sharepoints and the root level of the drives for an admin user, aside from adding more sharepoints? I want to avoid making more sharepoints, because the normal user should not have access remotely, but needs access locally for some automated tasks.

Thanks,
~s
