Hi Everyone,

I'm just starting out with Server 10.1 and have decided to create a sandbox site on my computer. I've gotten through the initial setup, but am now getting hung up on the 'Registering Your Data' section, which includes 'Registering a Folder'.  I've created a folder on  my hard drive which looks like this: C:\Users\tvick\Documents\ArcServerSandbox. However, I'm not sure what my 'Publisher Folder Hostname' should be?  Under My Computer, it shows my computer name as 'MFA-191'.  However, I get an error when I attempt to include this.  What am I doing wrong?
