Failed to create remote database... Help!

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. 

 

Thanks.

Try unsharing the database first, then creating the remote.  Sometimes it has trouble with the shared path and will give this error.
