OS X :: AFP And SMB Shares Messed Up - How To Fix

The AFP and SMB shares provided by my machine (OSX 10.6.5) seem to be messed up. Specifically:
1) There are shares which are visible from other machines which do not exist in System Preferences -> Sharing -> File Sharing
2) There are share listed in System Preferences -> Sharing -> File Sharing which cannot be deleted
How can this be cleaned up? What drives the set of shares? /var/db/samba/smb.shares is clearly a generated file. What generates it?

Snow Leopard :: Not Mounting SMB Shares At Login
I have a Windows 2000 server and a Ubuntu server. I can mount shares of both of them perfectly, authenticating with the domain user name. My iMac with 10.6.1 has a connection to the domain as well (showing a green light in Directory Utility). However: I have some mounts in my Login-items and they don't work. Some apps referring to files on those mounts now require me to manually mount them before working correctly. This used to work fine on 10.5. I also tried putting an Applescript in the Login-items, but it just shows a -36 error.

OS X :: Finder Internal Network Connectivity With SMB Shares?
I've been having some very odd internal network connectivity issues the last few weeks.First, here's what I'm working with:-1.83 GHz Core 2 Duo Mac Mini running Snow Leopard 10.6.2File server running Windows Server 2008 64bit-Two SMB shares I access from the file server for archive storage and backup purposes from the Mini-All networked together into a Linksys WRT54G running DD-WRT v24-sp1

So here's the deal. I can start up the Mini from a fresh boot and access my SMB file shares with no problems at all. The file server is pingable, and I can RDP into it with Remote Desktop. But put the computer to sleep? One third of it breaks--the SMB shares become inaccessible until after a reboot, BUT I can still ping the file server AND I can still RDP into it without any issues. It's for this reason I think it's a Finder-specific issues. It seems to "forget" my SMB shares after putting the computer to sleep, then can't "find" them again.

FWIW, I thought it might be a name resolution issues, so I tried all this using the straight-up IP address but nothing changed. The SMB shares aren't accessible, but I can still ping and RDP into the file server without issue.It's getting very frustrating rebooting my Mac virtually every time I need to access my file archive. It's also makes a consistent backup plan difficult, if not impossible. Oh, and one more data point. I've got a work laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate. When the Mac has issues accessing the SMB shares, I can access the file shares just fine (both by hostname and IP address) on the Windows 7 machine.I'm quite at a loss here. I'm contemplating a fresh install here, but not really confident it would make a difference.

OS X :: SMB Vs AFP - Both Slow?
I have a QNAP TS-209 Pro, a NAS drive that's a bit of a swiss army knife that can handle WINS, AppleTalk, NFS, Bonjour etc. It's a relatively fast unit with gigabit ethernet, I get about 11-12 MB/s without using Jumbo frames and I'm OK with that.

When I access it via Windows (in Boot Camp on my MBP) it's always lightning fast via both WiFi and, obviously, ethernet. Browsing it is instantaneous like it was a local drive. If I double-click on a folder, the Explorer window is filled with content in a matter of milliseconds. You won't know it from a local drive until you start some big file transfer.

But when I'm in OS X it's kind of slow. It's not an issue of network speed (I get rougly 160 Mbps with Airport in both Mac and Windows). The lagging manifests itself in different ways depending on protocol:

If I use SMB, navigating the folders is relatively snappy. Not as quick as in Windows, but still. Except when I go into a folder with a large number of files, then I have to wait forever staring at an empty Finder window before the file list appears. And copying to and from the drive is horrible, if I drag some large folder to my desktop I can basically go out to lunch while OS X is "Preparing to copy NN,NNN files". Once this infernal file counting is over, however, the actual copying is as fast as on Windows.

If I use AFP, navigating the folders is universally laggy. If I double-click on a folder with 10 subfolders, it takes about 3 seconds before I see them. It's kind of like browsing a remote FTP rather than a local NAS drive. On the other hand, the delay doesn't increase if there's a large number of files, like with SMB. It's the same 3-second delay no matter if there's one or a thousand files in the folder. Also, the "Preparing to copy..." part is much faster, it takes a coffee break but not an entire lunch like it does with SMB.

Is there any way to, um, make it suck less by optimizing something somewhere? Basically I'd like the navigation snappiness of SMB but without the insane delays when there are many files in a folder, and without "Preparing to copy..." moving at snail pace.

OS X :: Snow Leopard With Time Machine - SMB Shares Not Working
On 10.5 I used to have time machine backing up to a remote smb share using the time machine hacks to create a sparsebundle image on the smb share. No longer working with 10.6 - always get an error. Why apple couldn't make time machine get along with smb shares natively out of the box is simply beyond me.

OS X :: SMB Shares In Snow Leopard - Automatically Load At Startup
I am running Snow Leopard on a new Power Mac which is part of a windows network. On the Windows server, there are a couple of shares that I would like the mac to use. I can manually connect to them and browse ok, but what I would really like to do is have them automatically load on startup and display on the desktop. I have tried connecting to the them and then dragging them into the login items, but on restart, they don't appear on the desktop.

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Connect To Windows SMB Shares After Sleep
After my MBP has hibernated, I cannot connect to my SMB shares on my Win7 media center. I can relaunch finder, turn airport on and off, etc, but it will not connect to the server until after I restart the computer. It sees the Win7 box in Finder and lists it under "Shared," but even though I have a button for "Connect As," pressing it does no good. Finder just says "Connecting" and will never get any farther.

If I use the "connect to server" dialogue in finder rather than the shared list in the sidebar, the effect is the same, it come up with a "connecting" message that never succeeds and I cannot close.

The computer is a late 2007 MBP running 10.6. Its connecting wirelessly to an Airport Extreme, and the Win7 box has a wired connection to the Airport Extreme. Since it will reconnect just fine after a reboot, I'm certain the problem is with the MBP, and not the server or the router.

Software :: To Migrate From AFP To SMB ?
Is anyone aware of a way to migrate files/folders from an AFP share on a Windows 2003 server to an SMB share on the same server?

This has been a thorn in my side for almost a year. Nobody seems to have an answer, so I've tried my own thing:

In the AFP shares, which is legacy from OS9, the OSX 10.4 Macs can see the files properly. But, if they try to use them in an SMB share, to the same location on the same server, the special attributes of the files are gone. All of the files look like they are broken, etc.

I've tried to copy the files from the AFP share, through an OSX machine, to an SMB share on the same server and this does work, but the number of files, and levels of folders, seems to choke the copy and the speed is brutal, even on Gb. They have 800GB in 650K+ files. I tried the copy in the GUI and from the terminal. It would work for a while and then choke on various files for various reasons.

As I said, this has been an impossible task. There is no information on the Internets. Someone out there must have gone through this.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Mount SMB Shares On Boot
We have two Mac servers running Snow Leopard. Server "Alice" must statically mount a SMB/CIFS share located on remote server "Bob" for a particular local user "_www" at boot — not on login. I've seen plenty of solutions for mounting a share when a particular user logs in, but this is a server and services must run without user attendance. I've also seen dynamic automount solutions that mount the share when a user attempts to access something under the mount point, but this is also unacceptable because the mounted file system must be available strictly prior to any access attempts.

I come from a *nix world where the solution to this problem is a single line in /etc/fstab containing the necessary mount options, as follows:

//Bob/foo /path/to/mount/point smbfs username=remotename,password=remotepass,uid=_www 0 0

The answer to this question will provide an equivalent method of accomplishing exactly this on Snow Leopard Server. .

Snow Leopard :: Smb Network Shares From W7 PC Stop Working After A Few Hours
I have a W7 pc sharing storage on my network. when connecting when first starting my macbook, it connects fine, but after a few hours it drops out, and i am unable to connect to it unless i restart my macbook.

I have been using "connect to server" to connect my network shares, and when i try to reconnect them using this, it just keeps trying to connect, and wont ever connect even after leaving it to try for over 4 hours (connecting when first starting is fine, taking less than a minute). sounds similar to a problem with the 10.6 server, where smb crashes.

Is there a way to restart smb service on the macbook, or even fix it, so that it doesnt have to always be reconnected?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Get AFP And Not SMB
i am trying to set up a chronosync between my laptop and desktop and i am being told by the good folks at chronosync that i am having an issue because i have an SMB connection and not an AFP connection.they have provided pretty specific instructions on how to change this but i am feeling like a caveman trying to do this.i /attempted/ to disconnect my macpro and my time capsule from the left pane under "shared" but this did not seem to work so i simply turned off the wifi. then i deleted my network passes in the login section of keychain and am in the Connect To Server section but all i am seeing is a "Favorite Servers" listed as "SMB:// understanding is that i am supposed to find an AFP now i am looking in the little gear icon for recent servers (there is one named "Mirch's Computer" in there which seems odd...) anyway can i CLEAR these recent servers and ADD my MacPro as AFP.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: AD Accounts Can No Longer Connect To AFP File Shares
I am running into an issue where AD users can no longer connect to AFP file shares. If you attempt to authenticate with one of our Lion server's local accounts, you connect without any issues, but if you put network credentials in then you get the window shake denial. This issue just came up this morning. I attempted unbinding and rebinding the machine, updating from 10.7.2 to 10.7.3, removing and re-adding share point permissions, turning file sharing off then on, and still no network account authentication. 

how to get network credential authentication to AFP filesharing working again?

OS X Leopard :: SMB And AFP Connections To A NAS Box?
I've recently installed an Iomega 150D Nas box on our network. I had problems saving quark files using the SMB connection which our MACS connected to the box automatically with.

I disconnected the SMB connection, created a new AFP connection using command + K and typing in the IP address of the server.

This worked great, and we want to stick with AFP. However when we restart our machines in the morning they come on but they restore the SMB connection. We then have to remove this and recreate the AFP connection. This is because our quark files can't be read when we've saved them via AFP and open them via SMB.

Is there a way to force the MAC not to load the SMB connection to the file server and automatically load the AFP connection instead?

OS X Leopard :: Unable To Connect Via AFP Or SMB To Other Machines
I get my MacBook in a buisness ethernet online. It works fine, I got Internet, Lotus Notes does fine and I have access to some applications using Citrix.But I need to share some files. With MacOS 10.4.11 I simple used the point: Connect to server from the Finder menue and choosed my sever.Also I was able via SMB to get access to shared folders on local Windows machines,

Also I connect to the Apple of our Print Service office via AFP, like

Some of you Novell Servers used Novall native file access, and so I was alos able to connect some server volumes via AFP....

But equal which service I use, I get the error message, the the thing I enterd is not a valid URL syntax...

But as mentioned above, I have the correct and valid connection information entered, with the given SMB:// or AFP:// and the given Server / Workstation Name, Company informations.... Same if I enter a IP Adress, like the IP Number of our PrintService Apple. Also here the error occurs, that I haven't entered a valid URL information.

Server V10.5 Leopard :: AFP/SMB Vs. FTP?
I switched back to Apple about 6 months ago... so far so good. My major issue that I have been unable to resolve is file transfer speeds between our Windows File Server and my MacBook Pro. I have literally tried every network configuration / every DNS setting / etc., all with very little success. Basically the deal is this:

If I use either the SMB protocol or the AFP protocol (which I have setup on my Win 2003 Server), the file transfer speed is terrible... we're talking about 5 minutes to transfer a 100MB file... maybe even longer. I have Cat 6 / Gigabit connections running from all of the jacks / switches, etc.

If I connect a PC to the same network connection, it takes about 1-2 seconds to transfer the same file.

Now here's the crazy thing. If I connect to the server using the Apple FTP protocol (on my MacBook), the file downloads in 1-2 seconds (vs. 5 minutes on SMB/AFP). The only problem with Apple's FTP protocol is that it's Read-Only meaning that it won't let me write back to the server.

So I'm at a loss. I know my connection is good. I know my Apple is capable of pulling the file off of the server at lightning-fast speeds (through FTP), but I cannot for the life of me get decent speeds out of the AFP or SMB protocols.

Server V10.5 Leopard :: Difference Between Afp And Smb
I'm running OS X server 10.5.8. unlimited license with only file sharing enabled.

When a large number of users (more than 7 or 8) try to log on the server at the same time, the server goes AWOL. A few users get on and that's it. When I check the server preferences, file sharing has turned off by itself. When I try to restart it, it just turns off again. After waiting a while, I can turn it on again, or it'll turn on again by itself after a good long while.

This is in the setting of a computer lab. The users get on via afp. Would smb work better? What's the difference between the two?

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Block Access To Specific AFP Shares From Some IP Address?
I recently upgraded from an old Xserve G4 (running 10.4.11) to an new Intel based Xserve (running 10.6.1). Along with this change, I've finally been able to deploy network based Time Machine backups. This has been working pretty well, but within a couple days, I've noticed an issue that I'd like to find an automated workaround for.

Sometimes our users work from home or travel. The TM client on the desktop (er laptop) systems dutifully mounts the "TM" share from our Mac OS X Server system. Of course, being a VPN connection, this goes at a painfully slow pace. It seems like in most cases, it takes a whole day to complete a single backup run.

One option is that the user could simply manually disable TM on their client while they are away from the office and have a VPN connection active. The other I was considering would be to block access to the AFP server's share for TM backups. However, I wouldn't want to block access to all AFP shares, just this one specific share. This means that I can't use the firewall that is part of Mac OS X because it would simply block access to the network socket that the AFP server uses.

Looking around in the config screens and trying several google queries, I haven't come up with anything. Are there any hidden config options?

I'm still trying to figure out if this is even a good idea to do. If I block access to the TM share, then the users will also be blocked from being able to restore files. Maybe the thing to do is just put it on the user to disable TM when desired, but trying to figure out if this is even possible to do.

Server V10.5 Leopard :: AFP Works Fine, SMB Denies Access To All Folders?
Just having a few dramas trying to get our Windows 7 and Mac clients to connect to our 10.5.8 server via SMB.

AFP works fine, you can connect to the share and open all the subfolders and their contents, as per the permissions set in Workgroup Manager on the OD master back at head office.

However if you connect to the same server via SMB, you can connect to the share, but all the subfolders are crossed out, ie no access.

The server experiencing this issue with is running 10.5.8 Server, and is a remote replica of the master server. I have also tried changing it to "connected to a directory system"

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Can't Connect To OS X Server 10.6.4 Using AFP - But Can Via SMB
OK, I'm stumped. This is a brand new Mini server running OS X Server 10.6.4. I can connect from 10.5 and 10.6 clients using SMB but not AFP. Access to all services is set to 'Allowed' so it's not a service restriction.

Server has good DNS resolution for itself. This happened using OD and then I demoted it to Standalone to see if that would make any difference. None. Rebooted several times.

The AFP logs show this when a user tries to connect:
IP - - 29/Jul/2010:22:24:28 -0500 "Login adam" 0 0 0
IP - - 29/Jul/2010:22:24:30 -0500 "Logout adam" 0 0 0

But on the client side you get a dialog "There was an error connecting to the server. Check your connections and try again."

Possibly related to this, not all folders show up in the share when connected via SMB. All folders are there when viewed on the server though. Have forced share permissions down the tree several times..

Never seen this happen before in many years of OS X Server work.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: AFP Dropping Connections During Backup / Fix It?
So, we've got a Snow Leopard server (and had in the past a Leopard server) both of which we've always used CCC (Carbon Copy Cloner) in order to create daily backups.

Now everytime CCC is running, something occurs either in it...or on the server that makes our AFP hiccup so much so that when the backup is finished, we have to stop and re-start AFP in order to get it working properly again.

Any thoughts about why this may be occurring/how to fix it?

OS X :: After 10.5.8 Shares Open Up On Login
I have a number of shares on my NAS that I have linked in my login items, and when I log into OSX I get these on my desktop. The "server" is "afp://NASNAME(AFP)._afpovertcp._tcp.local/SHARENAME". This has worked great for ages, and all that happened when I logged into OSX was that these shares got an icon on the desktop. However, since the "upgrade" to 10.5.8, these shares open up when I log in. This is so irritating; I do not want these shares to open up, just to have an icon on the desktop. What "feature" did Apple screw around with, and what can I do to get back to status quo?

OS X Leopard :: Cannot Connect To Samba Shares
I've had my Macbook Pro for about a year and a half now. For a long time, Samba shares have worked perfectly. A few months ago, I got a new computer and stopped using my laptop as my primary computer. Over the past couple of months, I've not been able to connect to my Mac's Samba (windows) shares. This had always worked in the past, and I see no reason why it has stopped.

I've gone through all the standard Apple walkthroughs on setting up the shares, and I've also ensured its part of the same work group... however connecting via "smb://192.168.0.xx" doesn't work either. This problem is on both Linux and Windows machines. No firewall is enabled, and like I said, this is something that had always worked in the past.

Just to be clear, this applies to my Public folder as well as other shares I have manually created.

OS X :: Unable To Access Shares On Windows 7 PC
Basically, I'm trying to get all of the files off a hfs partition on an external harddrive so that I can reformat the drive. The problem is that my Windows machine is the only one with enough space to do this, and, of course, Windows cannot see the hfs partition, and I can't remove it. So I've been trying to copy the files from my Macbook Pro across the network. Unfortunately, this is the part that has proven difficult. My Windows machine does not show up in the list of shares in Finder, so I need to use Go > Connect to Server. While this works initially after first booting up.

It seems to disconnect after a few minutes and all attempts to reconnect just display a connecting box for a short while, and then an error message; "Connection Failed. There was an error connecting to the server. Check the server name or IP address and try again." I can ping my Windows machine, so there is nothing wrong with the IP, or the connection on a basic level, but for some reason I cannot connect. I've tried disabling Firewalls on both machines, and that hasn't helped. One thing I did notice is that the connection seems to remain stable as long as I do not access the network on my Windows machine. For instance, earlier this evening it disconnected as soon as I tried to use the internet.

I have a directory structure on a OpenSuse NFS Server which I like to browse/read using my MAC OSX 10.5.6. It works like a joy when I am mounting the NFS share on the command line using "sudo":

sudo mount -o resvport nfshost:/full/path/NFS/share /My/mount/point

However, this is kind of unconvenient as I need to start Terminal and sudo always asks me for the root password. mount the NFS share just as I mount afp shares using the Finder. But the NFS share is neither searchable using the Finder nor does it show up in the list of host in the side bar of the Finder.

Alu iMac 24" 4GB and several other stuff
Mac OS X (10.5.6)

Applications :: Looking For Stocks And Shares Tracking Software?
I've (very) recently become interested in buying shares on the stock markets. I would like some software (can be web based) for tracking trends, making predictions, possibly buying through the software. I'd prefer Mac Compatible software but if there is good windows software I'd like to hear about that too. What do the 'professionals' use? Is that either very expensive or bespoke?

OS X :: Dropping Mounted Shares - Server Unavailable
On my MacBook Pro I have set up a bunch of shares to mount upon login. They then are presented by icons on the desktop, all using server "afp://BMK-rnp (AFP)._afpovertco._tcp.local/SHARE NAME". The shares are hosted on my Infrant/NetGear ReadyNAS Pro, which uses the AFP protocol, and advertises the AFP service over Bonjour. However, when I have had the MBP sleeping for a few hours, not just a few minutes, and I open it back up, it has lost the connection to the shares. I get a message that the server is unavailable, and that the shares are disconnected. I can't do anything about it, except disconnect the shares in the pop-up, open up finder, and click on the "BMK-rnp (AFP)" icon under shared, and then reconnect to the shares. Is there a way, using std. OSX tools, to "re-connect" to the shares? I have tried a small utility - "Bounjour Mounter" - but I never got it working right.

OS X :: Write A Script To Reconnect Shares Automatically?
I've got a mac mini under my TV that I use as a media centre, however, all of the video content is stored on my Mac Pro. All of the video is accessed by two standard shared folders.However, everytime I restart my Mac Pro the shares obviously stop working. I'd like a way to automatically keep these shares alive. I think I'd need something that does the following and would be in a script of sorts (terminal script I guess):On bootup of OS X on the Mac Pro do the following:

1. Connect to the mac mini (maybe via ssh)
2. Close all existing shares on the mac mini
3. Initialise shares on the mac mini

On a different note, any idea how to execute a terminal script in the background at a set time every day? I've got a few lines of code that sync up my iPhoto and iTunes library across my machines and I'd like to schedule it to run at a certain time.
