Can't connect as different user while accessing network share with in domain network in Mac. Through Go > Connect to server > connect as

1 Answer 1


I am having the same issue. I am logged in with userA. I can see all of the shares. I want to access a specific share that userA does not have access to that userB does. I disconnect from server, but 'connect as' does not do anything when I click it

I found a workaround:

  1. Go to Finder
  2. Click Go, then Connect to Server
  3. Create a path of smb://userB@myserver
