OS X Leopard :: Unable To Connect To SMB - Windows - Share

I attempt to connect to my SMB (Windows Shares) server at home from my new macbook and I receive the error: "Connection Failed - You do not have permission to access this server" and sometimes but not always some error regarding read/write issue and gives me I believe "error -34"

This frustrates me because I know the server which is a Ubuntu Samba server works perfectly with:
Windows XP
Windows Vista
Ubuntu 8.04
OSX 10.4

Just not with OSX 10.5.5.

I have attempted to connect the Macbook to the Vista Box's shares it I do receive a login prompt so it seems the problem is between 10.5.5 and Ubuntu's implementation of Samba.

OS X :: Cannot Connect To Windows SMB Share
I've recently bought my first mac (mac mini) and frequently access a shared driver that is hosted on a Windows server. Until today I have no issues by going into finder and typing
smb://ip or hostname here
However, today I get:
"There was an error connecting to the server "server". Check the server name or IP address and try again".

The same problem occurs when I try to access it by IP address. I can ping the particular Windows computer just fine in terminal by both host name and IP. I know that sharing works because it's fine on other Windows computers. It seems the problem is in Finder. I have made no changes at all since the last time it worked.

OS X Leopard :: Can Only Connect To Smb Share From Windows As "nobody"
I'm trying to share some folders on my Mac using samba. When I connect from Windows, I do not get asked for a username and password, and I get connected as a guest user (nobody). What do I do to get connected as a real user? I've tried playing with /etc/smb.conf, but I'm not sure what to change.

OS X Leopard :: Unable To Connect To Windows 2003 Folder Share?
All of a sudden today our two Macs were unable to connect to a folder share on a Windows 2003 box. I've tried the typical troubleshooting steps including time sync, password resets, etc.

No matter what I try, it end up getting a Error -36 code whenever trying to connect. I am able to connect to the share without a problem on my PC. I am also able to connect to shares on another PC (running Windows XP).

Has anyone run into this?

Server V10.5 Leopard :: Can't Connect To Smb Share When Connected Via Pptp Vpn
I have an XServe behind an AirPort Extreme router that I've just configured for PPTP VPN so that a windows client can connect to an smb share on the server. We can connect fine when we're on the same LAN, of course. When connected via VPN, it connects fine and gets a valid 192.168.2.XXX ip address but I am not able to connect to the smb share. In the office, I would type \10.0.1.XXXshare and the authentication screen would pop right up. When connected remotely through the VPN, I cannot connect to either the LAN ip or the XServe's gateway IP When I click on connect, nothing happens for about a minute and then I get the error "Windows cannot find the server...." I have even tried turning off the XServe's firewall completely but no changes. If I setup the Airport to forward port 139 to the server, it works great but I'm concerned about security issues of leaving that particular port open.

Snow Leopard :: Windows Won't Access OS X SMB Share / Solve This?
I have NEVER gotten SAMBA sharing to ever work right, and I think it's because my Mac and Windows computer have the same user name and passwords.. This agrivates me to no end, non of these computers are not a member of a domain..

I select the computer to connect, and this shows up.

Then when I enter the password, the window closes and promptly comes back with this.

On XP, it's the same thing, Vista, same thing.

(PS, windows vista and 7 consider the computer it's own domain, that's why it says domain is brandon-PC)

When I am entering my username, I'm just entering it as "Brandon" but it seems to add the the laptops name to it automatically..

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.

MacBook Pro :: Windows 7 Cannot Access Lion SMB Share, No Login Prompt
I am able to access my Windows 7 machine's shares on my Mac (Lion 10.7.3) through SMB with no problems at all. However, I am unable to access my Mac's shares on my Windows machine. 

I have been fighting with this issue for hours and haven't found a solution yet. I've done a bunch of Googling and have found plenty of posts related to my issue, but no solutions. Everyone seems to be at least receiving a login prompt when they try to connect to a Mac OS X Lion Samba share from a Windows 7 machine, but I am not. All I get is "Windows cannot connect to \MAC" after ~15-20 seconds of waiting. 

Here's what I've tried:Reconfigured all of my settings on both the Windows and Mac systems, then restarted. Windows: set to 40- and 56-bit encryption for File Sharing, instead of 128-bit.Windows: network discovery and file sharing enabled.Windows: Network Security: LAN Manager Authentication Level to Send NTMLv2 response only” to “Send LM & NTLM – use NTLMv2 session if negotiated as suggested in another post.Windows: verified workgroup as WORKGROUP.Windows: verified Windows Firewall options for File Sharing.Windows: cleared credentials for my Mac's share in the Credential Manager, still no login prompt.Windows: reinserted my Mac's credentials in Credential Manager for the share, same issue. Mac: Enabled File Sharing, enabled SMB, enabled my Mac's account.Mac: verified Firewall settings for File Sharing.Mac: verified workgroup as WORKGROUP in WINS/NETBIOS configuration. For both systems: verified IP configuration as DHCP under the same gateway and subnet mask--they're clearly under the same network.

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.

OS X Leopard :: Cannot Copy Particular Files Across To SMB Share
Having a seriously tough problem here. I'm using some software (ChronoSync) to copy across my user dir to an SMB share on a Windows Home Server machine that I have. There are a few particular files that it refuses to copy (one of them being my iPhoto library) and this is the message that I get: "The operation cannot be completed because you do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items". I've tried copying locally (folder to folder) and this works fine. I've also tried writing Mac to Mac and that is fine. The problem seems to be SMB.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Windows Users Cannot Connect To SMB Service
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 (\, 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 to", 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: 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.

Snow Leopard :: Finder Error Code -36 On SMB Share
I've been having some issues with Finder since upgrading my machine to 10.6. When connected to an SMB share, if I copy a file over just before the file has completed copying i get an error message. "The Finder can't complete the operation because some data in 'Filename' can't be read or written. (Error Code -36)". The file itself though is completely intact and I am able to copy the file back across to the local disk with no error. I have attempted to search on Google and the forums here for this error code but I cannot seem to find anything. Only appears to affect shares connected by SMB and only since upgrading to 10.6.

Snow Leopard :: Syncing 10.6.2 To Exchange 2007 SMB Share Fails
I am having issues with Mac OS X 10.6.2 client and mobile homes hosted on an Exchange 2007 server where synchronization of data between the mobile user's home directory at login and logout fails. This problem only seems to exist with 10.6 clients as reverting a client to 10.5 results in a problem free experience. To summarise: My client is bound to AD successfully (a DSCL confirms that this is the case and I can browse all the AD users). Inside 'Directory Utility', 'Create mobile account at login' is ticked, along with 'Use UNC path from Active Directory to derive network home location', using SMB. When a newly created user in AD logs into the Mac, login is immediately successful and the user is notified on when their AD password will expire. Immediately afterwards, the user is asked if they would like to create a mobile account, which if accepted will prompt a sync to start and the account is logged in. As soon as the account is logged in and the desktop appears, the user is notified that there is a problem syncing:

Application Support
Font Collections
Input Methods

Once these errors are cleared, the SMB 'sharepoint' is mounted on the desktop. A check of 'Ticket Viewer' shows that the machine has received a Kerberos ticket. At this point I have visually checked that the user's home directory structure has been created on the SMB sharepoint specified in AD and it has. Obviously the files and folders specified in the error messages have not been created. If the user logs out, the sync stalls with the only option being to manually stop the sync to successfully log out. If the user logs in, the sync again stalls. Stopping the sync allows the user to login. If I change a user from a mobile home to a network home something interesting happens. The user can login, no visible problems. Opening an app and changing the apps default settings does not generate a .plist file in ~/Library/Preferences. If I copy a file from an external flash drive to any folder in the network user's home directory a 'disk is full' message appears despite the client machine correctly showing that there is 143GB of storage space available on the SMB volume.

Software :: Windows Clients Cannot Connect To Share
We have an Xserve running Mac OSX Server with a Share. Our Mac clients can connect fine but our Windows clients are no longer able to connect. It worked before but not anymore and I don't know what happened.

Windows clients CAN:
- ping server
- VNC server
- see server in "My Network Places"

However, Windows clients CAN'T:
- map server share
- connect to server share.
I know it is not a permission issue.

Software :: Cannot Connect To Windows Share (Volume Not Mounted)
I'm not able to connect to a windows share on a Windows 2003 server with my AD username and password. I'm running OS 10.5.8 from a MacBook Pro.The AD credentials work from other Macs on the network running 10.4.11 but it will not connect from mine. I've added a virgin user account and had the same problem from that account. I've reinstalled the operating system with the same failure. AD credentials allow me to log into the Exchange server via Entoruage.

My Mac is not bound to AD and neither are any of the other Mac workstations in our group. The message I get after entering my username and password in the Windows dialog box is usually "The volume could not be mounted ". In the Console log the following entry pertains to this but it's foreign to me, CFPropertyListCreateFromXMLData(): Old-style plist parser: missing semicolon in dictionary.

OS X :: SMB And Timemachine - Access Share Again?
I was following some instructions on trying to get my time machine to backup to a Network Server SHARE on my home network, and I did one change that made time machine show it, and it tried and came back with a error 41 I believe it was. So I did some research on that, and ran some more commands to try and get it to allow the backup. Well after this, I am no longer able to connect to that SMB share anymore or ANY network share. I can't figure out how to fix this as I am not really familiar with MACs as good as some of you. Can anyone tell me how to fix this so I can access that share again?

OS X Leopard :: Failure To Connect To SMB Server Since 10.5.5 Update?
Ever since I updated to 10.5.5, I have no longer been able to connect to my school's SMB server [URL]. If I use "Connect to Server..." [URL] I get the message that the server could not be reached and I should check the server name or IP address. I know everything is correct, as I have been connecting in this same way for months. Also, I can use mount_smbfs on my FreeBSD machine and everything works fine.

OS X :: Does SMB On Mac Share Over IPv6 As Well As IPv4?
Does SMB on Mac OS X share over IPv6 as well as IPv4? I would rather my sharing be limited to the local ipv4 and maybe 6 network, and not to the entire world. Are there any configuration settings I can play with in order to configure SMB in this respect?

OS X :: Mount SMB Share To Desktop At Login
I just started drinking the Mac Kool-Aid when I ordered my first Mac - a MBP - last week. I must admit it tastes way better than the Windoze 3 day old cold coffee I'm used to. So far I'm loving it, but I'm running into one issue on my work network. After trying for 3 hours with our Linux guru we could not get Finder to open a connection to our file/web server which is Debian (Linux) through Samba. I tried everything I could think of and there's not much help on Google. Using the command line mount_smbfs I was finally able to mount the samba share on our Debian to a folder in my home directory. Right now this is fine, for the rest of the day I'll be able to work, but I'm just wondering if there is a way I can create a script that runs when I login that does the following:

1) At login check if my Server is available ( (this in case I'm using my MBP on the road or from home)

2) Run this command if the server exists: mount_smbfs //myusername:mypassword@ /pathto/mountfolder/ondesktop

3) The last part is the key (I guess) - I want this share to show up on my Desktop like when I connect a USB drive or how my Macintosh HD does

I'm assuming it's fairlly easy to create a script that runs at login? I've Googled a little with no success but I think the tricky part will making sure the is a valid server -- or maybe there doesn't even need to be a check it just runs the command and if it's not there nothing happens? The other tricky part for me is figuring out where exactly I need to mount the drive to so that it appears on my desktop as a mounted drive instead of in my /Users/username/smbMount folder that I arbitrarily made. The later is what I really need to konw as I'm sure with alot of Googling I can find the best way to create a login script in Leopard, but I have no idea where to mount it to and I'm afraid to just start trying to mount to some device in /dev/ which (I think) could potentially screw things up.

Server V10.5 Leopard :: WinXP AD Users Cannot Connect Via SMB
Server is an Intel Xserve, 10.5.8. Windows users get authentication errors when attempting to connect via SMB on the Mac server. The server is bound to Active Directory, and the Mac users are able to connect via AFP just fine. Macs also cannot connect via SMB. I get the error message "NT_STATUS_WRONG_PASSWORD" when the user attempts to log in. Local users are able to connect via SMB, but I don't want to re-enter a dozen or so PC users on this server if I can avoid it.

In the /var/db/smb.conf file there is an entry for a password server that may not be correct, but if I change it to the password server I've been instructed to use, the file flips back to the original setting when I stop and start the SMB service. I think if I make changes to the /etc/smb.conf file outside the END section, where the comments say to make changes, they will carry over to /var/db/smb.conf, but I'm not sure of the syntax.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mount SMB Share As Root?
I'm currently working on migrating some machines from Snow Leopard to Lion, and I have a bunch of postimaging scripts that are fired on first boot. The first script automatically mounts an SMB share to copy the rest of the postimaging scripts and run them. However it would seem that it is no longer possible to mount an SMB share as root (root as in running sudo -i as an admin account to get to a root shell, or running the command prefixed with sudo) as it fails with "mount_smbfs: server rejected the connection: Authentication error". As far as I can tell, the request is not actually making it to the SMB server, as there is no log entries indicating a failure for this particular user to logon.

OS X Technologies :: Creating A Folder On An SMB Share Using A Mac
Our environment has multiple Windows file servers, both 2003 and 2008. If one of these SMB shares is accessed from a Mac and the user creates a folder, will the ACLs on the share that are set to cascade actually cascade to this newly created folder? We've had issues in the past where ACLs that are supposedly set to cascade on a shared folder are not present on sub-folders created from Macs.Next question: if the share resides on a netapp device, do the same rules apply? The Macs are still connecting to these shared folders using the SMB protocol.All Macs are bound to our 2008 AD domain and use network accounts with local homefolders. The issue seems to happen when one or both of the following things happen:

1. A Mac user copies/creates a folder on a Netapp share and for some reason it doesn't inherit rights correctly

2. We move the folder from one share on an actual Windows server to the Netapp and it doesn't take permissions correctly.

OS X :: Time Machine Backup On Network Drive / Automatically Connect To Windows Share?
I've found plenty of articles on how to get Time Machine to backup TO a network drive, however I have the opposite problem; I have a Windows machine on my network, with some shared folders, and I'd like to back-up their contents using Time Machine on my Mac since it has plenty of space, without having to copy their contents somewhere first if possible.

However, Time Machine only lets you choose what to exclude, it doesn't let you specify special sources to backup. I was thinking a symbolic link from /Volumes, but I've no idea where to point it to. A second relevant question as well would be; how do I get OS X to automatically connect to a Windows share when it's available? The Windows machine isn't always on when I start up my Mac, but I don't want to have to manually connect all the time

OS X Tiger :: Error -36 When Connecting To Win 2008 SMB Share
We are migrating our file services from a 2003 Small Business Server to a new 2008 SBS. I have created the share, set permissions, and configured Group Policy to not require SMB signing. However, when we try to connect from any of our 10.4.11 clients I get the dreaded Error -36 (The Finder cannot complete the operation because some of the data in smb://........ could not be read or written. (Error code -36)). There is no dialog box for passwords nothing.

I can connect using the terminal using the smbclient command. I can connect from 10.5 machines on the same network. I don't have the money to upgrade the 10 or so 10.4.11 machines to 10.5. I have spent over 5 hours searching for answers. Some of which are: [URL]. But we aren't trying to send clear text. [URL]. Which suggest the Group Policy changes. [URL].

OS X :: IMacs Finder Crashing Repeatedly When Connecting To SMB Share?
I currently have about 8 iMacs in our lab on OS X 10.5.8 with all of their updates. When attempted to reach an SMB share on a Windows 2008 server by way of smb://10.x.x.x each mac starts to error. It reaches the server and asks for their login, but after the correct info is inputted the mac starts to act up. The apple menu disappears and so does every icon on the desktop. The finder navigator becomes inaccessible and you aren't really able to do anything until the computer is forced to shut down by holding down the power button. I turned on Activity Monitor and then tried to connect to a server and saw that the processes Finder and ReportCrash both appear and then disappear about every 15 seconds or less. Over and over again with no popup reporting the crash to the user.

ITunes Mac :: Freezes When Adding Music File From Smb Share?
As title states, if I try to add more than 15/20 files to iTunes, it freezes and there's no turning back.
All my music is stored on my home-server (running Gentoo/Linux) and I have always used it with success until iTunes 10 came out.

The only thing I can do is to unmount the remote directory, open iTunes and remove the music.

I've already tried to upgrade to v10.0.1 but no luck so far.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: MacBook Can No Longer Authenticate To SMB Share After Update
It all stopped working immediately after the update. The PC is set to map a drive to the share it authenticates as <mac name>/<user name>; yet the password, which worked perfectly pre update, is now rejected.

IMac Intel :: Restore Image From SMB / AFS Share Using Disk Utility
I am looking at using a quick way to "pick up" and restore a dmg (Disk Utility) created image from a network share using Disk Utility. Ive tried using HTTP but the image is 60+gb and takes ages to download to the client. Is there any way I can tell the Disk Utility to restore from a network share. Ive tried the usual smb:// but it doesn't work.

Hardware :: Unable To Share Printer / Do Not Have Sufficient Access To Connect To Printer
I have a iMAC running 10.5.5 and have connected a HP Photosmart C6280 Printer to it via the USB cable. Using Bonjour to connect a XP and a Vista box I get a error saying "ERROR You do not have sufficient access to your computer to connect to the selected printer". I am logged in as the administrator when I do it on the XP or Vista computer and have completed this function on other printer installation before so I know the permissions are there. The software for the printer is loaded on both windows computers.

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 :: Connecting Windows Clients To SMB Service - Set As PDC
Is there a discussion on this thread that I am missing? I have as my only server a Mac mini running OSX 10.6.3 server. I have SMB turned on, and acting as a PDC for my windows clients. The windows clients are reporting that they can not connect to the OS X server because of DNS errors, but my Dns I think, is properly set up. I was told by Apple that this is a case of Microsoft not plying nicely. is that the case? How can I solve this issue? An Active Directory Domain Controller for the domain [URL] could not be contacted. Ensure that the domain name is typed correctly.

If the name is correct, click the details for troubleshooting information. Am I not putting my informaiton in correctly when trying to connect my windows 7 cient to this service on the mac mini? It is asking for: User name (I assume this is the username of a user on the network?) Password (The password for the user.) Domain name. (by default it is putting the name of the computer that I am trying to add to the domain. Is this correct? Should it be the computer I am currently on in all caps ie THISCOMPUTERNAME? or would it be the fully qualified domain name of my domain? Then it is telling me that "windows cannot find an account for your computer in the COMPUTERNAME domain. (Your computer domain can be different from your user account domain.)

then it asks for: Computer name: (I assume this is the name of the computer I am trying to get on the domain? in all caps: COMPUTERNAME ?) Computer domain: (Again, I assume this would be the fully qualified domain name:[URL] But when I put in what I think is correct, I get the above error.

OS X Leopard :: Two Macs Will Not Connect Or Share
We've just bought a refurbed Mac book Pro since our HP notebook is so bloody unreliable and I suspect is about to cark it through overheating/inadequate cooling. The only problem is that networking it with our G5 is turning into a real nightmare, and embarrassingly both the HP and an old desktop PC can not only see and share with each other they can also see and be seen by both Macs and use the printer connected to the G5, and absolutely everything connects to the internet and shows up in the DHCP list on the router. Even more annoying was that the Macs connected initially this morning when we got the Macbook Pro out of the box, but after we'd done the initial round of software updates (10.5.2 was installed on the MBP) we've had nothing but trouble. Quite often they'd be in the shared list in the Finder window but wouldn't connect when clicked.

Other times they wouldn't be there at all. We've even tried connecting the two over firewire, which worked for the G5 but not the MBP although the MBP could see the folders on the external hard drive we use for Time Machine backups of the G5. File sharing is on for both Macs (and printer sharing for the G5 obviously), AFP is enabled, firewall settings have been moved to Allow All... everything looks right but it doesn't work right. Right now I've managed to get the G5 to connect to the MBP using the Go>Connect to Server method mentioned elsewhere here, but it's one way only. It didn't work when we tried it on the MBP. The network is part cabled, part WiFi. We've got a Motorola Surfboard cable modem/gateway/wireless router, both notebooks are connecting wirelessly, both desktops are cabled. If it makes any difference both Macs are on 10.5.5, the old desktop is Win2K (please don't laugh) and the HP notebook is Vista.
