Today i would like to discuss in this BLOG "File Sharing problem in storage foundation 5.0". i am using SFHA 5.0 with Windows2003 Server R2 operating system.

Note:- if your Disk Groups are not being import automatically, you can see the 2nd and 3rd link for resolution in the helpfull links below

Storage Foundation  configuration

i have two diskgroups with 3 hardisk drives. Below are some detail information

1.) Basic Disk Group = 2 drives = 4 partition
2.) UsersData Disk Group = 1 drive = 2 partitions (from 2 partitions the one partition is SRL logs)
3.) I am using virtual ISCSI SAN


My 2nd disk group (UsersData Disk Group) has a share folder on its partition and when my PC gets restart my sharing folder gets unshare so i have to re share it again on daily basis when i switch on my PC.


You will make a change to your registry.

Open up Regedit and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver

Here you need to enter a new REG_MULTI_SZ entry (right click, New, Multi-String Value)
In the name of the Multi-String Value, enter "DependOnService" and in the Data field, enter the service name for Veritas DG Delayed Import Server name which is by default "VxDgDI" (do not include the quotes).

Once you have completed this, restart the computer.
