    VMware tools shared folder option for windows 2003 server domain controller

    schmandini Novice

      Hi all,


      i have got a question about the "shared folder" option in the VMware tools.


      we run a windows 2003 environment on esx server 2.5.3. our service provider told us to deactivate the "shared folder" option on windows 2003 domain controllers for a user migration.


      \- is that correct?


      \- what the "shared folder" option of the Vmware tools good for on esx server?


      \- should we deactivate them on all windows server 2003 guest systems?


      \- what is the best practice with the "shared folder" option on windows 2003 server incl. domain controllers, terminal servers, etc?


      thanks in advance.
