Hi,

 

The server is running Linux, Windows? Is the server a Domain Controller (DC)?

 

If there is no DC did you create an account for each user to access the server?

In that case you need to create a folder on the server, create a group and add the users with access to that group, assign the proper permissions to that group on the folder, share the folder

BTW much better to have your shared files on the server since it gets backed up nightly whereas your workstation doesn't.

Wand3r3r you cannot assume because it is a server that it is being backed up, or has redundant drives.  While this may be the standard many smaller shops don't invest in backing up their data, until after they lose it the first time.
