I have Mac OS X 10.6.8 on a laptop which cannot mount or connect to any shares, AFP or SMB, through Finder. I can, however, connect through terminal bash commands and is able to mount them this way;

Once mounted through terminal commands, Finder can then browse the share.

This is just a problem on the one profile on that computer as other profiles do not have this issue. I have removed the keychains for the servers and still no luck through Finder.

I also checked and verified the disk and permissions. Any ideas what could be wrong with this profile?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

  • Do you have an example of what happens when you try to connect? Any error messages? – Maximus Jul 17 '13 at 13:33

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

    I can't recall exactly, but you may need to log out and then log back in after deleting this file. – pknz Jun 12 '13 at 4:35
