Mac OS X Lion Server :: Sharing Only Users Cannot Connect To Time Machine Volume

Jun 23, 2012

I just wanted to add a sharing only user for my girlfriends new MacBook that she could use to connect to a shared Time Machine Volume.If I add a new standard user, this user can connect to my server via finder (connect as...) and see the shared drives. If the same user tries to connect to the Time Machine Backup Volume via the settings dialog, it receives an error message (OSStatus-error 5). If I add a sharing only user, this user cannot connect via finder or Time Machine (same error).

The clients console states the following error message:
/System/Library/CoreServices/NetAuthAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/NetAuthAgent[2471]AFP error -5018 mapped to EIO

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Windows Users Cannot Connect To SMB Service

Feb 23, 2012

I have two Lion 10.7.3 servers joined to my company's AD. These servers provide SMB/AFP file services to users. They have been working successfully until a week ago when a change in AD was made. Now Windows (7 or XP, doesn't matter) clients cannot connect to the server using the DNS name, only the IP address. Mac OS X clients are not affected by this, i.e. they can use the DNS name fine. All clients are on AD too.What I observe from a Windows 7 client is, I open Windows Explorer, type \xserver in the address bar, hit enter, & it denies my connection immediately. If I do the same thing with the IP address (\10.0.1.10), it lets me in immediately.

For Windows clients, I have tried both the short DNS name as well as the FQDN, & neither work. The DNS name on the server itself is fine, verified by "changeip -checkhostname". Whatever changed in AD caused the Lion servers to start doing this because they both started exhibiting this behavior at the same time.The only info I've been able to get regarding what changed in AD from the domain admins was "We changed the UPN fromuser@domain.example.com to Firstname.Lastname@example.com", in other words, to their email address. In the system logs, here's an attempt to connect from a Windows client using the short DNS name:

Feb 20 09:24:39 xserver rpcsvchost[32619]: sandbox_init: com.apple.msrpc.netlogon.sb succeeded
Feb 20 09:24:39 xserver sandboxd[32620] ([32619]): rpcsvchost(32619) deny file-read-metadata /Library/Managed Preferences
Feb 20 09:24:39 xserver sandboxd[32620] ([32619]): rpcsvchost(32619) deny file-read-metadata /private/var/root
Feb 20 09:24:39: --- last message repeated 3 times ---
[Log] .....

Why only the DNS name doesn't work.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Time Machine Only Shows Volume Instead Of Files

Jun 19, 2012

Had to get my HD replaced in my iMac. Have been trying to get individual files off my Time Machine backup.  

I go the "Browse other time machine disks" route but when it opens all it ever shows me is a single file with the name of my old HD. It won't display any files inside that volume.  

I can "Show package contents" on the file itself to get to the files inside but it seems like some files are restored in time machine only.

Specifically the itunes library file gets broken into ,last, add , delete files, which my current iTunes install errors on when trying to import.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Migration Assistant Doesn't See Time Machine Volume?

Mar 6, 2012

I'm moving from a MacBook Pro running 10.6.8 to a MBP running 10.7.5. I thought this would be pretty simple  ... just attach my Snow Leopard Time Machine external drive to the Lion MBP and run Migration Assistant. 

But when I go through the MA steps, MA does not see my TM drive. I've made sure I have the latest upgrades and have run Disk Utility's First Aid on the TM drive. 

Ideas? I know I can try MA with other interfaces but using TM allows me to work on my old computer until my new one is ready. 

The TM drive is a 500GB Iomega eGo drive.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Disk Utility Can't Repair Time Machine Volume?

Jul 2, 2012

I have an external WD drive in a self-enclosed case, both purchased from OWC, used for my Time Machine backups. The disk and backups have been running just fine since I began using this disk over a year ago. 

When I plugged in my disk yesterday (USB), it didn't mount. I ran Disk Utility on my 'Time Machine' partition, starting with verify disk. It reported that it needed to be repaired. When I run repair, it runs for several minutes and I see information of what is being done -- incorrect block count for file shutdown_time, incorrect block count for file permStore, etc -- but I always ends with "Disk Utility can't repair this disk" and that it needs to be reformatted. 

I've run Repair Disk multiple times, all with the same answer so it seems running it again won't change the problem. Reformatting and starting fresh with Time Machine seems to be the only course of action 

What specific issues should I be aware of as I reformat my Time Machine drive/app partition?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Time Machine - Event Store UUIDs Don't Match For Volume

Mar 26, 2012

I've got an issue with time machine. It seems to be stuck at preparing backups for a long time, and after backing up, it indexes all the time. So a backup process takes about an hour. Started happening a few days ago. Using Airport Extreme with a disk connected over the network. Tried resetting and deleting the spotlight file as specified on pondini troubleshooting D2.

Here is a log file:
Starting standard backup
Attempting to mount network destination URL: afp://Chris@192.168.1.1/Time%20Machine
Mounted network destination at mountpoint: /Volumes/Time Machine-1 using URL: afp://Chris@192.168.1.1/Time%20Machine .....
Backup canceled.
Ejected Time Machine disk image.
Ejected Time Machine network volume.

I noticed that Time Machine-1 is mounted instead of Time Machine. Is this part of the problem.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Time Machine Corrupted Startup Volume - How To Reset Permissions

Jul 1, 2012

Running 10.7.4, MacBookPro Mid 2010.   

After hardware failure (read heads on HD gave out.  AppleCare replacement of HD. Third party data recovery and reinstall on my new HD.)  I connected new Ext HD for Time Machine, and Time Machine has corrupted my startup volume. 

Took to the repair shop and they said the Time Machine preferences file was corrupted, which left all my system drive data in a read-only state after backup.  They trashed the pref file, and reset the permissions/read-only flags on my startup volume. 

1) How do I reset the file permissions myself? (so I can nuke my Time Machine backup, manually back everything up, and manually recreate my entire system drive?)

2)  Do you think since the data recovery place (Apple Authorized BTW) rewrote all my original data to the new HD, some "random" corruptions were copied over?  Or is this a problem with Time Machine?  (Which is why I want to do a manual reinstall/restore.)

Mac OS X Lion Server :: AD LDAP Connects To Lion Server But Does Not Show Users / Groups

Feb 19, 2012

I have a server in our DMZ that connects to Active Directory LDAP server (non-ssl over 389) but no objects actually show up in the directory editor. I get a green light in my Network Account Server, but queries against LDAP return no results. My end goal is to be able to dictate to Profile Manager what LDAP groups are allowed to enroll devices. I tested on our internal network on a test server and get the same results. Anyone have any luck connecting a Lion Server to LDAP and actually being able to view and utilize users and groups?

Intel Mac :: Restore Lion OS From Lion Server Time Machine Backup?

May 3, 2012

I am running a Intel Imac 2008 clean install SL then Lion upgrade, followed by Lion Server install.I have multiple home macs, and intnded the server as a way to monitor and restrict kids internet use.In short, it has changes/screwed up multiple programs, and complicated home sharing issues considerably. Mail on the server machine has permission problems (cannot send mail, unable to sign), Spotlight in mail is non-functioning, finder spotlight searches are inconsistent, etc.I want to revert to plain old Lion.

I have done disk utility/verify disk and verified/repaired permissions, and have 'fiddled' (i'm not an expert) in the keychain/certificates areas, but I think the best solution is a clean install of Lion. When I backup to TIme Machine, is there a way to pull a 'Lion' version of my disk image back, and just not upgrade to Server? I understand I can disable Server and turn off applications in Server, but it doesn't fix my buggy machine. My options are to back up my 250GB of music, 100GB of photos, 100GB of movies, etc on to external drives, and clean install and then reimport everything, but even that will probably mean I cant reinstall my single user licesnse of MS office, VMware fusion, etc that I didn't buy on the App store.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Time Machine Error 'Create New Backup'

May 23, 2012

After updating to Lion server, I moved my Drobo over and setup Time Machine

Many users are prompeted to reuse or create a new backup.

The problem is I log in with credentials of 'USER A', and on the dialog it lists another 'USER B', userb.sparsebundle as the file to reuse.  

I recently had a iMac hard drive die, and i tired to use the time machine on the server, with 'USER A' credentials, i got 4 listings and none of them were 'USER A' 

I check the drobo and 'USER A''s sparsebundle is there. I have tried changeing permissions to read the sparsebudle, but the bundle is a 250k file, not a diskimage of the files even.  

How do i resolve this problem of the wrong users coming up on "reuse or create new backup"? 

How do i access the lost sparsebundle that i cannot log into to get the files for the user that needs them?

Software :: Unable To Connect To OSX Server For Screen Sharing / Get This To Work?

Sep 29, 2010

I have a few Macs in my condo, and I'm able to connect between all of them with Screen Sharing/Remote Management with no problem. I recently bought a Mac Mini Server to use as a HTPC/Server with OSX Server installed. I can connect to any of my other computers FROM the server with Screen Sharing, but I can't connect TO the Mac Mini Server from any of my other computers. All of the settings seem to be correct and the same as my other computers. Does anyone have any ideas as to how to get this to work?

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Server File Sharing Crashes?

Jun 2, 2012

We have a brand new Mac Pro (12 core with 64GB of RAM) running OS X Lion Server in a corporate environment. The server is running only file sharing and software update servers, and we have around 40 users who need to be connected over AFP at all times. This company runs 24/7 and we have an XSan environment using an ATTO Celerity 8GB 4 channel fiber card (84EN) along with a 6 port 10GB Ethernet card. The Ethernet card is configured in a link aggregation bond using ports 1-4. The idea is that clients who do not have fiber cards installed on their machines can still connect to the SAN via Ethernet and this file server. They AFP connect to the share, and of course the share is the SAN. It's a single mount point and everyone has read/write access. 

The issue is that this machine keeps crashing (multiple times per day) and I cannot find any reason why. Syslog shows nothing of value and I've called into Apple Enterprise Support who also brought nothing to the table. 

We initially had SMB and AFP file sharing activated but as soon as a Windows 7 client connected the machine was brought down. So, I disabled SMB via terminal (sudo serveradmin stop smb) and deactivated it via the Server app for the share point). That at least allows the machine to be up for 4-6 hours before crashing again. 

This is seemingly the simplest of setups for file sharing and I would've thought that this beast of a machine would be able to handle being a file server without issue for far more than 40 clients. I'm seeing high CPU usage, which Apple support told me was perfectly normal (around 60% on the kernel_task process and around 55% on the AppleFileServer process). It also seems to consume all 64GB of memory, though it shows 60GB as inactive, but at the same time it's paging in and out. 

Virtually all of the clients are running Lion (10.7.4), the server itself is running 10.7.4. There are a few ethernet connected clients running 10.6 along with two running 10.5. As I mentioned I disabled SMB so there are no Windows computers connecting to this machine at this time (though it would be nice to get that functionality back if AFP can be stabilized). 

This company simply cannot be down, especially not multiple times per day. The only way to bring things back and running from a crash is to hard boot the machine via the power button as you cannot perform a restart or a shutdown. Once the machine comes back up everything is back to working order for a few more hours until it happens again.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: How To Lock Down OD Users

Feb 2, 2012

I have a Mac Pro that is running OD to create users. My problem is that the users that I have to give macs to, need rights on their machines to install programs because of all of the development software that these individuals need.I don't want them to be able to make a local user so that they cant unbind these machines from the OD server.

They still need access to terminal. I don't want them to be able to boot into the recovery partition or terminal to get super user rights (thus changing passwords or adding/deleting users). I have restricted their rights to access "Users & Groups" through OD Policies but that's about all I have done.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: 10.7.4 Will Not Create Users

May 10, 2012

I bought a Mac Mini Server yesterday and set it up successfully (Set OD, etc). Everything was working great until I went back and tried to create new users via the server app. As of now, it gives me the error "SEUserErrorDomain error1" and tells me that it cannot create the user. Even though it says that, it will still show up in the user list with the "blue globe" (that I believe is from OD?) but disappear the moment I drill into it and try to save anything. Workgroup Manager will allow me to create the user, but it does not show up in the user list in the server app so I cannot enable certain services for the user (i.e. assign folders for share point, etc).  

P.S. Apple tech support had me reinstall the 10.7.4 combo update - no help. They also had me use disk utility to repair permissions - no help. P.S.S. On a side note, I did install Samba 3 on the server via mac port to try and help with LDAP auth (I ended up going with pGina for my windows users), but I have no clue how to uninstall it.

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Edit Users In Workgroup Manager, New Users Cannot Login

Feb 13, 2012

Today when we started trying to add users to our server (we use it only for afp access at this time), we noticed that new users belonging to a group "storage" were unable to login from client machines via afp (clients both 10.7.2 and 10.6.8).  

When we tried editing the users accounts to change which groups they belonged to, it would appear in workgroup (and server preferences) that the changes would take but there was still no access. 

As a test case, we modified an existing user who had no issues logging in to belong to a diffenent group and have different sharepoint access. The changes looked good in workgroup and server prefs, but when the user logged in, he was only able to acces his old sharepoint and not the new one (and since his permissions to the old were removed, he shouldn't have access to that sharepoint). 

Also, for some reason users cannot be deleted within workgroup manager any more. The login used was the diradmin account.

Add Existing Users / Computers To Lion Server

May 3, 2012

We have an exiting network of approximately 50 Macs running anything from Lion to Leopard. Obviously there are existing local accounts on these machines.What I'd like to do is to administer these users and machines through Lion Server so that I can use the existing user information for all of the services provided by Lion Server, but to do so without altering the way the end user operates and without any data loss.I am having difficulty finding any information on this, but surely someone has installed Open Directory into an existing Mac network.
