Since I can't find thousands of other users reporting this I'm thinking it's got to be something wrong with my system, but after I updated to Mountain Lion I can't connect to Apple file servers anymore.

Not even a Drobo FS.

The servers still show up in my sidebar but they never successfully connect.

I tried creating a new user and connecting from that one, but still had the same problem.

The OSX servers are running 10.6 & 10.7.

Really? No one else is having this problem?

    Can you post any error messages you see in Console.app. Also, try connecting directly by hitting command-K in Finder and entering the server address manually (don't forget the afp:// prefix). – robmathers Aug 4 '12 at 22:50

It seems that obsolete iDisk settings in OSX 10.8 may prevent you to connect to a file server.

You need to run those commands in Terminal

defaults delete -g iToolsMember
defaults delete -g iToolsMemberDomain

to get rid of those settings.
