Setup Shouldn't Allow User to Attempt CDSHARE in Root

Article ID: 102516

SYMPTOMS

Setup cannot complete copying files to the share.

CAUSE

This problem occurs if the administrator attempts to run Setup to a destination share that is the root of a FAT drive on a network machine. Setup requires a subdirectory for a destination, and when the file limit for a root is reached, the copy fails.

RESOLUTION

Always specify the remote share destination to be a subdirectory on the network share. Subdirectories have no limit to the number of files you can create.
