Connecting to Windows 2000 SBC Server from a OS 9 Mac


C

Chris Cline

I have 2 servers running SFM. One is my PDC and the other is a member
server both with all the latest service packs.

When I try to connect to the member server using my Mac G3 with OS 9
9.2.2 I get the logon dialog and can connect to the default UAM Volume
just fine. However, if I try to use the same Mac machine and try to
connect to my PDC I never get prompted to select a Volume. I get the
user name password dialog but once I enter in the user name/password
or even try the guest account I get timeout errors.
"The microsoft user authentication method encountered an error, the
server unexpectedly closed the session"

What I have done so far to correct the problem is as follows:

1.Downloaded the lates UAM file to my member server, logged into it
from my mac and installed the latest UAM to my mac.
2. Made sure the SFM service was installed on the PDC and checked the
share permissions of the MS UAM Volume.
3. Tried using the Server IP address in the OS/9 Chooser to connect
with the same problem as above. I get the user logon dialog but error
after that.


Any help I would appreciate thanks

We are having similar problems with any pre-OSX machine trying to connect
to a Windows 2000 server. We have SFM installs and have created Mac
shares.

When connecting to servername.something.com using MSUAM, I recieve the
error 'The User Authentication method encountered an error. The server
unexpectedly closed the session.'

I've installed the latest MSUAM on the Mac, tried disabling Appletalk as
we work on a TCP/IP network, uninstalled and reinstalled SFM, recreated
the shares on the server.

We can connect to the 2000 server from an OS 10.x machine and from other
Windows computers.

The problem occured a few days after installing the following Windows
updates:
KB823182
KB826232
KB825119
KB828035
KB828749
KB828741
KB837001

Any ideas?
