It seems HomeGroup is messing thing s up so I unjoined both computers and disabled HomeGroup sharing. I know HomeGroup was a huge confusing mess at first on WHS 2011 (Windows Home Server) You couldn't activate and use/mix HomeGroup AND default Server share at the same time. You had to pick either one or the other. (HomeGroup over rides everything else no matter what) I think this is the problem and should be in the WiKi. By the way, the user name of HomeGroup is computername\HomeGropuUser$
It's probably not worth experiment getting both to work though from what I said above. Just google HomeGroup WHS 2011 and you'll see the mess.
It seems when HomeGroup is enabled, shares DON"T show up that were created in FlexRaid without sharing them a second time through windows.
Now that HomeGroup is disabled shares created in FlexRaid show up instantly.
It seems that you don't need to share the folder in Windows now at all. Can someone clarify if we are supposed to ever mess with the sharing in Windows once setup in FlexRaid?
Sharing a folder with the same account on both laptops works. (Account JazJon on both)
I tried to access the share from my HTPC (Account Shuttle) and got accessed denied.
I right clicked the share, map network drive, Connect using different credentials, typed in JazJon and my password. But I get:
"The network folder specified is currently mapped using a different user name and password. To connect using a different user name ad password, first disconnect any existing mappings to this network share."
Shouldn't I be able to connect to the share if I type in the JazJon credentials?
This will be a problem because on Windows 8 you log in with your windows live email account instead of a local account, and need to add JazJon in the Window control panel Credentials manager to connect to shares.
So I kind of have things working but I'm not satisfied until I iron out the questions above.
