SYMPTOMS

Hidden shares are no longer available after you save changes with System Policy Editor in registry mode.

CAUSE

The value for the AutoShareServer parameter was replaced with the setting in System Policy Editor\Windows NT Network\Sharing\Create Hidden Drive Shares (server).


RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem you can edit the WINNT.ADM file or obtain Service Pack 3.

POLICY !!WorkstationShareAutoCreate
VALUENAME "AutoShareWks"
VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0
---->VALUEON  NUMERIC 1   <----
PART !!ShareWks_Tip1            TEXT    END PART
PART !!ShareWks_Tip2            TEXT    END PART
END POLICY

POLICY !!ServerShareAutoCreate
VALUENAME "AutoShareServer"
VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0
---->VALUEON  NUMERIC 1  <----
PART !!ShareServer_Tip1         TEXT    END PART
PART !!ShareServer_Tip2         TEXT    END PART
END POLICY
                


and for BeepEnabled, add the indicated line:

POLICY !!Beep_Enabled
VALUENAME BeepEnabled
VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0
---->VALUEON  NUMERIC 1   <----
PART !!Beep_Tip1TEXTEND PART
PART !!Beep_Tip2TEXTEND PART
END POLICY
                


Add the lines surrounded by, ----> <----, but leave those characters out.

-OR-

To correct this problem, manually set the following Local Computer Properties in System Policy Editor before saving changes to the registry:

Windows NT Network

   Sharing
      Create hidden drive shares (workstation)
      Create hidden drive shares (server)
                


Windows NT Printers

   Beep for error enabled
                


NOTE: You must manually set the Local Computer Properties mentioned above each time you save changes to the registry. Their check boxes will be blank (clear) each time you start System Policy Editor, unless you edit the WINNT.ADM file or obtain SP3.


STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows NT Server version 4.0. This problem was corrected in the latest U.S. Service Pack for Windows NT version 4.0. For information on obtaining the Service Pack, query on the following word in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (without the spaces):
