Can't start File Services for Macintosh

After using Windows Update to upgrade IE 5.0 to IE 6.0 SP1
on a Win2k file server, the File Services for Macintosh
will not start.

How can I correct this problem?

Thank you.

I'd be surprised that your update is related to the Mac services not
starting, but then again I've been surprised by many things.

Start with the basics and check your Event Viewer for any error messages.
Also try manually starting the services and note any error messages then as
well.

File Services for Macintosh can be uninstalled and reinstalled relatively
easily and only the Mac volumes will need to be created. In fact, remove all
Mac volumes prior to uninstalling the services for good measure.

If you find any interesting information in the Event Logs that you need help
with, post back and most likely someone will be able to elaborate.

Hope this helps! bill

Thanks for your reply. The eventid: is 7024 error 32. I
get same error when I try to start the service manually.

Hmm. Unfortunately, 7024 is not specific to a particular service and simply
indicates failure of any particular service.

Do your Mac services give any indication of authentication failure? Is
anything else showing in the Event logs?

Have you attempted to remove and reinstall the File Services for Macintosh?

I removed and reinstalled the File Services for Macintosh
and got same results. During the reinstall of File
Services for Macintosh, this message appeared near the
finish: One or more services for the File Services for
Macintosh components took more time to start. Install
will continue but services will not be availabel until
they have started completely.

Event log errors: Source: Mac File, Event ID 12020, unable
to register the server name with the network. Make sure no
other server is using this name. Event ID: 10012, The
file server for Mac service failed...trying to initialize
Apple Talk filing protocol driver (sfmsrv.sys) with server
params. Source: Service Control Manager, Event ID 7024,
The file Server for Mac service terminated with errror 32.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Hi David!

Let's try cross-posting this into the
microsoft.public.windows.server.general newsgroup to see if someone there
can give any indication as to why the Mac services aren't starting. You've
given some pretty good details.

David,

Have you had any luck with this issue? I have the same
problem on my server though it is windows 2003.

Please let me know if and how you have resolved the issue.

Cheers.

Hi All,

I have a windows 2003 server that had the same issue occur. I uninstalled services for macintosh. rebooted and re-installed. i recieved the error message just like above. I then unbound the AFP protocol from the NIC from the network properties. I then was able to reinstall and found the service had started.

I just had to re-enable the shares.

I feel this might have been caused by an update for the network card?! looking at the properties of the protocol, the drop down no longer displayed the card. I hope this dosent mean a future re-occurance....
