  • Hi,

    First, make sure that both servers are on same workgroup.

    Assuming that the shared drive is DISK D on one of the Windows Server 2016, right click the drive and open the Properties – Sharing – Advanced Sharing – select Share this folder and configure the permissions.

    After enabling share. On the other server, you may access this shared drive via IP address, or, map network drive.

  • It also makes sharing easier in a workgroup if you configure the same user name and password on both systems.
