Failed to create remote database.

When trying to create the remote database, I get the following error message:


Failed to create remote database "____." Directory lookup for the file "..........ADF" failed with the operating system error 2 (The system cannot find the specified file.) CREATE DATABASE failed. Some names listed could not be created. Check related errors. Database ________ could not be created! Please contact admin for more help.


Any ideas? I run maintenance regularly and everything seems to be working fine. ACT Premium EX 2007

Re: Failed to create remote database.

Try unsharing the database first, then try to create the RDB.
