SFM Share not visible on Mac Clients

Hi,

we have an issue of an Macintosh Share not being visible on the Mac OS X
Clients when they connect to the Win-Server via AFP.

The Mac Share is created and vivible as being shared on the Win-Server.

We connect to the Win-Server from Mac OS X Clients (10.3.6 and 10.3.7) via
AppleShare over IP, provide Username and Password and succesfully
authenticate. Then in the Share Browser all we see is the Standard
"Microsoft UAM..." share.

We deleted and recreated the share already a couple of times without
success.

Thanks for any pointers on how to resolve this.

Hi Stefan!

You're referring to deleting and recreating a "share", which is a
Windows share point. Have you created a Mac "volume"? This is the Mac
equivalent of a Windows share but is not the same thing. You'll do this
by opening Computer Management from the Administrative Tools folder and
right-clicking the "Shares" folder to create a "share" for Windows as
well as a "volume" for Macs.

Hope this helps! bill

Mac OS X clients may not see root shares such as d:\ but if the shared
folder is changed to d:\share then they see the share just fine. Share
security settings can also prevent a user from seeing a share but this
should not be an issue specific to Mac OS X.

Hi William and Jim,

thanks for the answers. Maybe my wording was bad, but I was really referring
to a Mac Volume. We did a right click and then share for Mac Clients...

The share was working perfectly for more than half a year (and it is not
root-level like c:\ - it is like d:\foldedername), then after a crash of the
server we can not make this volume visible to mac osx afp clients anymore as
I described previously.

In the Computer management it *IS* visible as a Mac Volume (different little
icon), but never gets visible on the Macs. The "Microsoft UAM) default share
is *NOT* visible in the Computer management, but *IS* visible on the mac.
This is really weird.

Recreating the volume/share and even rebooting didn't help any.
