I'm in a similar position at work, with a mixed environment. We use WinShortcutter, which is freeware. The allows you to right-click on a UNC path (such as \\FileServer01\topfolder\subfolder\shared.doc) and Open as Windows Link: It's quite configurable as well, and allows drive mappings (so when you are sent a link that starts S:/folder, it will allow you ...

If you're using Lion, you can use smbutil: usage: smbutil [-hv] subcommand [args] where subcommands are: help display help on specified subcommand lookup resolve NetBIOS name to IP address status resolve IP address or DNS name to NetBIOS names view list resources on specified host dfs list DFS referrals identity identity ...

Hey I ran into the same problem. If you turn off System Preferences -> Sharing -> Printer Sharing the advanced tab becomes enabled again.

It depends on how this was set up to launch. From boot, Go > Connect to Server > (click the dropbox) and select clear recent servers, if not using any. Then go to System Preferences > Accounts and see if there is something set up in the Login Items tab related to the server and clear. Restart and test. If it continues I'd check Macintosh HD > Library > ...

This seems to be a known issue as I remember running across a work-around the other day at TUAW: http://www.tuaw.com/2013/10/27/did-mavericks-kill-your-network-drive-access-heres-a-fix/ Basically what they are telling you to do is replace the SMB:// in the Go > Connect To Server... dialog box with CIFS:// I gather this forces the Mac to use an older ...

When you access a file share, you could try using CMD + k in Finder (Connect to server), and then type the address as a CIFS or SMB path - ie. cifs://my.server/SomeFileShare or smb://my.server/SomeFileShare Disclaimer: I don't have Mavericks, and no access to my Mac right now. And I'm not even certain that Finder doesn't somehow jump on AFP anyhow. Edit: ...

You could install Samba3 through Macports and then you'll have smbpasswd available again. Install Xcode from Apple - If you download Xcode from the Mac App Store, be sure to use the Xcode preferences to subsequently download the command line tools or use the xcode-select tool to get the BSD command line tools placed in your path. MacPorts needs make, gcc ...

I ran across this today which is one way to do it. In summary for Mountain Lion: Edit the file /etc/auto_master Within add /- auto_smb Create /etc/auto_smb Within add /Volumes/mount_point -fstype=smbfs,soft ://user:pass@smbserver/share The author goes onto mention a second method using the vifs command, but I've never tried that one and it seems to do ...

We have had a very similar (if not the same) problem ever since we upgraded our server to Windows 2008 R2. (WinServer 2003 was fine.) However, the main symptom we encountered, is somewhat different: We work in a mixed Mac / PC environment. Desktop operators work on Mac only, whereas our backend services are Windows based. Also some manual operations are ...

Don't know of a way within Finder, but Blue Harvest (paid application) offers this functionality: http://www.zeroonetwenty.com/blueharvest4/

There are actually two messages you're referring to: "This operation can't be completed because the item is in use" and "The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access some of the items." If you see the first one - I sometimes get that message too. Quite often this can be resolved by running: sudo lsof | grep ...

If you can't get SMB working, try AFP. You can run both side-by-side, and use SMB on your Windows and AFP on OS X. To set up AFP on your Raspberry Pi, you can use the following command: sudo apt-get install netatalk This will install Netatalk on your RPi, and following successful installation, the RPi should automatically show in the Shared section in ...

Actually Apple has added a new implementation of SMB as it is now the default filing protocol for file sharing (actually SMB2) http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-57588593-263/os-x-mavericks-switches-to-smb2-networking/ While I don't recognize the error you are getting, try replacing SMB in your connection string with CIFS. EG: cifs://server/share That ...


2

First of all, let's try to verify that OS X is using SMB2 for your shared drive. Can you connect via Finder to your NAS share drive? Then open a Terminal (type terminal in Launchpad) and execute the command mount without any parameters, like this: mount This should output you several lines, one of which should be about your shared drive and how OS X is ...

The ._ files are AppleDouble files that are used to store metadata like extended attributes, ACLs, file flags, and resource forks. To delete them, run: find . -name ._\* -delete You can see if files have extended attributes, ACLs, or file flags with ls -l@eO. The ._ files are usually created because files have extended attributes. You can use xattr -c to ...

I have not tried this myself, and I realize the OP prefers native solutions, but nonetheless: There's an app called Asepsis that works by redirecting creation of those files into a special folder, i.e. in a way preventing them from appearing.


2

I will admit, I hadn't noticed that the defaults write command stopped working in Mavericks. However, when I DO clean network mounts, instead of your one liner find and rm, I use this: dot_clean . The manfile explains: dot_clean -- Merge ._* files with corresponding native files. I don't use the -m flag, but you may find it helpful in your situation. ...

I'm having the exact same problem on my client. Looking at a WireShark trace, there is always a 45 second delay in opening the connection the the file share (OSX Server 3.1.2). Using SMB1 (CIFS) does the same thing and WireShark confirms SMB vs. SMB2. Any other ideas out there?


2

Essentially: The operating system has lost its integrity at least one bundle – the corecrypto.kext kernel extension – is missing there's no explanation for the loss. Can you be sure that all other parts of the OS are integral? Recommendations Verify the file system: use Disk Utility. Verify the disk more thoroughly. For this you might use ...

I was able to get this working by adding the volume to Privacy section of Spotlight System Preferences, then removing said share from the same location. I think this is how I got it working in previous versions as well.


2

Mount the share that you want and then open "System Preferences - Users and groups - Login items" Click the + symbol to add a new login item and then select the network share from the window that opens. The volume should open on every login. Check the box next to it to hide the item. This should keep the Finder window from appearing.


2

Yep! Go to 'Users & Groups' in System Preferences Select the 'Guest User' Tick 'Allow guests to connect to shared folders' Done :)

I had been using 10.7 for the last two years, and have a Windows 7 server in the closet that I use to share files with all the Mac and Windows users in our office, of which there are equal amounts of each due to their differing roles (Accounting, Coding, Editing on FCP). As an Apple support tech, I have seen many of my clients with odd issues as soon as ...

Chad, Thanks for the link. Petrock had the solution. Here it is: I used the free Pref Setter app to edit the plist file. You probably used one of those "set hidden finder features" apps/utils, didn't you... naughty person you is... If you open up ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist with Property List Editor and see an entry for ...

Here's how I solved this problem - the scorched earth method - find all preference files with the server name and remove them. Replace server_name with the name of the server giving you grief, replace file_name with the name of the preference files you find: in a terminal: cd ~/Library/Preferences/ sudo grep -R "server_name" . for each file returned: ...

We faced the same issue. At the office you can't see the shares, but connect through smb. Through a VPN this ain't possible. The answer is in the length of the share-name. Mountain lion can only see them if the length of the sharename is 12 characters or less. Seems like a bug to me. Changing the sharenames is what we did to resolve this issue.


1

Solution: Join the Mountain Lion system to the Active Directory domain. User can still log in with their local user name, but when connecting to smb://servername, OSX will stop defaulting to .local for credentials. This is new to ML, and I think it is a bug, but this is the only solution that we have found.

If this is the same issue as I've seen try this: Get rid of the user's GlobalPreferences.plist file (it's hidden). ~/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist

To be honest it sounds like it could be a bug in DropBox, and you should contact them to find a solution (and please post the solution here if they give you one). Why do you have the DropBox folder on the server? Why not have a dropbox folder on the server and a completely separate one on your notebook? Perhaps it's not what you want, but it seems like ...
