Leopard Refusing to Mount SMB Share

Recommended Posts

Kraftman    1

I have my Windows machine (fresh install as of last night, XP SP2) which is essentially being used as a file server following the purchase of my Mac.

There are 4 SMB shares on the server, spanning 3 drives.

Data - sharing 100% of a 320gb internal

inspired - 30gb partition on a second 320gb internal

shareddocs - obviously, windows partition on second 320gb internal

LACIE - root of 500GB drive shared

All drives/partitions are NTFS.

I can mount/write to all partitions EXCEPT LACIE. I get error -6602 while trying to mount.

Console says the following:

 
28/12/07 6:12:15 PM kernel smb_maperr32: no direct map for 32 bit server error (0xc0000205) 
28/12/07 6:12:15 PM /System/Library/CoreServices/NetAuthAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/NetAuthAgent[913] smb_mount: open session failed!: syserr = Broken pipe

I am mounting the drive by:

Finder -> Cmd + K -> SMB://username@192.168.1.125/LACIE

Is the Lacie drive USB?

Yes, forgot to mention that. The Lacie drive is connected over USB2.

Go onto the Windows Machine and check that the Permissions are setup properly, you should have "Everyone" setup for read and write.

Erm.. Thats all I can think of, sorry, my networking experience in Leopard has been pretty sweet

We must think on the same track, because that is the first thing I did as well.

It was originally

username - read/write

administrators - read/write

everyone - read

but I changed the everyone to read/write.

That doesn't seem to be a problem anyways, as it isn't an access denied message....

Does that PC have a static IP address? If not, give it one, then in finder go, CMD+K, type SMB://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (XXX = ipaddress)

See if you can connect like that? Sounds like just another leopard networking bug to me

Yeah, it's a static IP.

I can see the drive, I can see LACIE (along with the other shared drives), but I can't see any files/connect to it.

Now that is odd.... Hmm....

Try renaming the share to something else. LACIE01

This is really really odd

Urm, not sure if this is of any help...but if I don't safely remove my USB drives from my windows machine, my mac won't pick it up, it claims it's busy - this may be related...I don't know :laugh:

I will do the following now:

a) Format the drive (not a quick format -- the full 3 hour format)

b) Name the drive External or 500GB or something different than LACIE -- share it with same volume name.

c) Reboot the server

d) Reboot the drive

e) Change USB ports

saachi: I've tried to follow those guides (I always Google before posting), but it doesn't work.

I do the following

sudo smbclient -L 192.168.1.125

and it pops up with

Domain=[SERVERNAME] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]

I believe this command is for a different issue --- I would run this if I couldn't see 192.168.1.125.

I can see it perfectly. I can mount any drive except LACIE perfectly (naturally, I haven't tried the hidden Windows shares....)

At this point I've done everything but change USB ports -- but I just think that's a little too farfetched.

Write issues or something -- absolutely I would change it. But as it writes perfectly while in remote desktop on the server, it wouldn't make any sense for it to be the USB port.

I guess I will have a brick of a USB drive until 10.5.2 comes out...

Good/bad news! It might not be Leopard's fault after all!

On two separate Windows machines (XP SP2 on both), I receive the same error. One machine is VMWare Fusion, and the other is a real-life Dell desktop.

---------------------------
\\192.168.1.125\lacie_500gb
---------------------------
\\192.168.1.125\lacie_500gb

Not enough server storage is available to process this command.

---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------

Wow, triple post much?

Anyways, I fixed the problem. It was on my Windows box. I had to edit the registry and reboot (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/285089).

lacie_500gb is mounted on my desktop right now.

Thanks for all the help everyone :)

Thanks, I was having the same problem of being unable to mount a windows smb share in Leopard, and a search on the errors in my console brought me here. This fixed my problem.

Man, thank you very much :)

I've been searching for a solution several hours now - you made my day.

(BTW: I set that registry value to 50 decimal. Works perfectly.)

Kraftman, you are awesome. Problem solved for me. I had to register just to say thank you.

My problem was similar. I was trying to copy a 140gb file from a samba share to a firewire drive. The IRPStackSize increase to 21 (decimal) from the default 15 solved it.

Thanks again!
