Setting up folders and mapping to them

Post by BlueWeasel » Tue Oct 20, 2009 1:02 am

I've got a 419U with latest firmware as a member of my 2003 AD.

I'm at a total loss on how to get my folders setup and accessible so I can move some user share drives over.

I've looked around but have not managed to find a how-to or tutorial to get things setup.

I've got about 4 sections I need to setup on the NAS and move from a server as part of a migration process.

Share
Users
Apps
QuickBooks

I assume once these folders are setup I can then map them as drives again: S, U, J (Apps), Q...

I'm lost and under a _tight_ deadline to get it working.

Hi BlueWeasel,
Please refer to this guide on how to configure domain users' & groups' access right.
http://qnap.com/pro_application.asp?ap_id=153

Once you have created new share folders (besides the exisiting Q.. default shares), then you can map the drives as mapped network drives on different PCs.

Create differnt shares for different users and configure access rights

Yeah, been there.

Honestly QNAP has some of the least helpful documentation and screen shots I've ever seen.
Rarely do they seem to cover exactly what the steps are (or have gaps in the process).
After 15 years of consulting I don't think I've had so many problems setting a system up.

Simon spent over 2 hours on this and can't make it work...
