Fix Recommendation

Ensure files owned by users are stored on a different logical partition then the directory server data files.

Check Contents

Refer to the AD database location obtained in check V-8316. Note the logical drive (e.g., C:) on which the files are located.

Determine if the server is currently providing file sharing services to users with the following command.
Enter "net share" at a command prompt.

Note the logical drive(s) or file system partition for any site-created data shares.
Ignore all system shares (e.g., Windows NETLOGON, SYSVOL, and administrative shares ending in $). User shares that are hidden (ending with $) should not be ignored.

If user shares are located on the same logical partition as the directory server data files, this is a finding.
