Hi Gentle People,
I have something new and wonderful to share.
One of my team members went to an office today to install software to old-fashioned way (by CD). The application uses ODBC drivers to access a shared database (engine & data files) on a server. The LAN is a Win2K AD domain with multiple member servers and XP client PCs.
Two specific PCs have a strange link between them I have not seen before. If you install the ODBC drivers & create the required DSNs on PC "A" they automagically appear on PC "B", yet if you test the DSN from PC "B" it fails. It is almost as if PC "B" is using the C-drive of PC "A" as its own.
I am going there tomorrow to see this for myself, but has anyone out there seen this before?
Any ideas what can cause this behavior?
I will accept any idea or feedback,
