## Resolution

goal
How do I specify an absolute volume path when translating security for network appliances?

fact

symptom
An absolute path such as `c:\temp\users` is needed instead of specifying a share, such as `//server/c\$/temp/users`.

fix

The Domain Migration Administrator (DMA) MMC will allow you to enter an absolute path such as `c:\temp\users`.  However, this will not be successful, because the agent is not running locally on the appliance.  Therefore, you must specify the path as a share, using UNC format:

`\\servername\sharename\path`
