MS UAM Installer


J

Johan

I'm trying to connect a couple of Mac OS X 10.4.8to my win 2003 server
(standard edition).
And now I've spent the better of this whole day trying to download UAM. I've
read all that I can find on how to connect tha Mac's but it all ends with
installing the UAM, which seems impossible to download. I simple cannot find
it.
I'm acutally starting to feel like a complete fool over this. Lucky thing
that my collegues knows even less about this problem :)

Thanks

/ Johan

Hi Johan!

The Microsoft UAM was made obsolete by Mac OS X 10.4.6. You don't need
it for 10.4.8 because the necessary security is built in.

Hope this helps!

Thanks Bill!

Now I've got them talking. I can connect shared folders and browse them but
there still are some problems, or real showstoppers you could say.

1. All filename are presented with only 8 characters (as in DOS) when I
browse the folders that are shared.

2. If I try to open a file I get an errorcode 10660 on the Mac. Folders and
subfolders are browsed as they should be.

Do you have any ideas?

Thanks again Bill. Real nice of you.

You're using File Services for Macintosh, which is now ancient. It uses
the AFP 2.2 protocol, which does not support file/folder names longer
than 31 characters. You're probably seeing files on the server placed
there by Windows folks who can create names up to about 250 characters
in length. Since your server can not display their full names, it
truncates them.
2. If I try to open a file I get an errorcode 10660 on the Mac. Folders and
subfolders are browsed as they should be.
Not sure about the 10660 messages.

You should really consider using some third party software. Mac OS X
10.4 and higher use AFP 3.2, which has some incompatibilities with AFP
2.2. Microsoft is not planning to update Windows Server with AFP 3.2 but
will instead remove File Services for Macintosh altogether after Windows
Server 2003.

Look into Group Logic's ExtremeZ-IP <http://www.grouplogic.com> or
Thursby's Dave or ADmitMac <http://www.thursby.com>.

Hope this helps!
