    Hi

    I'm learning server 2008. I'm doing the Train Signal tutorials on active directory for server 2008. Ive already set up active directory on 2 netbooks, and installed a file server on one of those. When I browse to it from another machine I notice Sysvol and Netlogon folders are shared. I was wondering if this is a security issue and is it OK to install a file server on the same machine with AD?

    Thanks

    I'm fairly certain they are supposed to be as they contain the scripts and policies that the clients need to access once you assign them in AD
