OS9 - Windows 2000 SP4

Hi There,

We just installed some updates on our Windows 2000 SP4 box and now all
our OS 9 and OS 8 machines are unable to connect to the server. The
login box appears but once we enter the credentials the window hangs
for about 2 minutes then we get an error saying something like "your
connection was unexpectedly closed".

All Windows and Mac OS X boxes are connecting fine; it’s just the Mac
OS 9 and Mac OS 8.

The packages we installed on the Windows 2000 Server are as follows:

KB842773
KB93803v2
KB90859
KB93086
KB93066
KB94320
KB890923-IE6 SP1

We have uninstalled all the new packages, but the problew still
exsists.

Let me know if there is any solution out there for this problem.

Thanks,

Tony Bevilacqua

Hi Tony!

Are your Mac OS X machines connecting via SMB instead of AFP? If so then
your problem lies with the File Services for Macintosh. Mac OS 8 and 9
machines can only use AFP.

You can safely remove and reinstall File Services for Macintosh and this
will probably correct your problem. Keep in mind that you'll need to
recreate your Mac volumes. In fact, to make a clean uninstall/reinstall
I would suggest you delete all Mac volumes (this doesn't delete your
files, it only deletes the shares to your Macs) and then uninstall.

Hope this helps! bill

Thanks for the Help,

We have it connecting to AFP. This has never ever been an issue until we
installed the Security patches on the Windows 2000 box (the server) which
was this morning.

Over 30 machines were happily working yesterday morning - its not client
side. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Tony
