I have a server with some directories exported for AFP. I can mount afp volumes from Finder without any problem.

When I try this from the command line:

$ sudo mount_afp  'afp://me:mypass@my-server/home/me'  /Users/me/myMountPoint

I get the error mount_afp: AFPMountURL returned error 2, errno is 2

As stated, I can mount my-server's /home/me using Finder and my credentials on that machine just fine. Also tried with mount_afp -i ... interactive mode with no luck.

apparently, error 2 is:

error 2 siInitVBLQsErr: VBLqueues for all slots could not be initialized. or dsAddressErr: address error

Which doesn't help much

Turns out /home/me wasn't the share name on my-server - just the local path. It is actually "me's home". I went in to the server and changed that behavior in /etc/afp.conf
