I own a NAS (a D-Link DNS 320, to be more specific) which has two hard drives and multiple network shares. I can connect to these network shares using the AFP or the SMB protocol.
When I want to connect to a share on drive #1 with Finder, everything works okay. But if I want to connect to a share on drive #2, it starts connecting but does not come to an end (the window "connecting to server" stays open and the progressbar keeps spinning). I tried both smb and afp. If I abort the process of connecting, Finder freezes and I cannot restart it, even with some "brutal" methods. It seems that some mounting points get damaged: If I use terminal or Forklift after aborting the process, they crash when browsing to "/mnt/Volumes".
The reason I ask you on apple.sx for help is that both drives work well via smb on my android phone or my windows machine.
I already tried:
- Create a new user account and connect from there: same problem (so it is not the .GlobalPreferences.plist-problem)
- Mount from Terminal: the "mount" command gets stuck
- Disable TimeMachine and remove TimeMachine shares (TimeMachine had some problems with my NAS in the past)
I use Mountain Lion 10.8.2 on a MBP late 2011. Thank you for your help.
