hiddensharePrevent users from creating hidden shares from the VMM console (or support them!)
VMM Allows you to create shares that are hidden by adding a $ to the end of the name. It works fine and allows you to use them.
However, if you remove one of these shares (ie, retire it) all of the hidden shares disappear. This is because the discovery gets run and it incorrectly assumes anything with a $ at the end is special and needs to be filtered out.
At this point, all of your VMs on these shares go into an unsupported state and you lose the ability to manage VMs using VMM.
Please allow VMM to utilize hidden shares (why wouldn't you? Hyper-v and Failover Cluster Manager have no problems with them!) or prevent the user from creating them in the first place!
