XP as Domain Controller :)

This is very funny XP machine as a domain controller

1) Create a share called SYSVOL on an XP machine

2) Try to unshare the directory you shared as SYSVOL.

3) You will get a nice warning stating:

"This share is required for the machine to act properly as a domain controller. Removing it will cause a loss of functionality on all clients that this domain controller serves. Are you sure you wish to stop sharing SYSVOL?"

But do not worry - unsharing SYSVOL on XP will not break your AD. This is just an example of code reuse that Microsoft does.

Don't forget to post your comments :)

Thanks,
