    We installed a extra drive in our Windows 2003 Server and created a new share, and moved our files to the new share, the pc computers can see the share just fine, the mac's can't see the folders. (before the moving folders off of the main drive, everyone could see the 150 gig and 120,000 files just fine in one share). I thought it might be a files size and amount of folders, 150 gig 120,000 files, but after reducing each share to 20 gig and 12,000 files, they still won't show up on the mac's.

    It seem's like it's not updating what's on the Windows 2003 server for the mac's?

    Sounded like the above fixe might work but would like confirmation.

    Please help..

    The mac world is relatively new to me, so I have a limited amount of knowledge on mac's and want to make sure I am applying the right solution. The solution above about applying the (change to the policy named Microsoft network client: Digitally sign communications (always) to disabled.) sounded like it would fix my problem, but I wanted to ask people such as yourself who have experience whether I was correct.

    Thanks,

    Question
    Hello everyone... I'm new here so I hope I sit in the right thread.

    Our company just bought one of his first mac's. A Powerbook G4 OS X 10.3.6. Great machine.... But I have a little troubles connecting to our Win 2003 Server.
    I managed it to bind it to the active directory. So for so good, when i go to network in the finder i see all my servers and PC's in the local domain but cannot connect to it.
    When I try to connect it says: "The alias 'servername' could not be opened, because the original item cannot be found"
    When i try it trough "connect to server" it says "could not connect to the server because name or password is not correct"

    I've tried to install MS UAM but still the same result. I tried to set "Digitaly sign communications (always) to disabled" Nothing worked....

    Somebody got a good answer for this? O, almost forgot: we don't use an .local domain.

    Thank you guys very much for the stil to come help....

    Bart

    We currently upgraded our file server to windows 2003 as a member server. we did not to the domain upgrade or prep for windows 2003. so that might bring us some issue.

    We successful connected all the MAC to the windows 2003 file server. Unfortunately, users with OS 9 or 9.2.2 can't see files or folder created in PC..

    ex. windows XP user create a folder called MAc-2000.
    users in OS X using SMB can see the files. But users with OS 9.2. can't!!!


    Any idea!!!

    Did you ever get an answer for this I am also having the same issues. AFP access to win2k3 server results in in some files not showing up. Any file posted by a Windows desktop do not update the SFM with the info for the Mac user to see. Is there on the Mac and through SMB, but not viewable with AFP.

    Anyone wanting to connect to Server 2003 contact me, its too complicated to write on here, it conects just like you would on a PC, i can access all my users files as a administrator and copy them to my Mac, you dont connect via smb or the with the usual box, when I connect i get a Box with the microsoft logo and enter my usual name and password and bingo I am in.

    I will help anyone with theis problem as I found Apple support totally un helpful in this area as I also did microsoft.

    It really dose work!!!!! i have also synced Microsoft Entourage to my server as well no probs

    You need to download from the Microsoft website UAM Enabiler and install it on your Mac

    Has anyone tried smbclient from the terminal?

    smbclient //servername/sharename -U username

    It's not as easy as a GUI but it works, and it's free.
