Disappearing MacFile volume
Posted on 1998-07-28
Our NT server (DNS server) recently stopped shaing a volume we have set up as a MacFile share. Other NT machines can see it fine, but it has disappeared from the chooser in all the macs, and is no longer found on the network if you click on an alias of the volume. The event viewer system log says "Desktop Database for volume "FTP" could not be loaded. Reconstructing the database."
That was over 12 hours ago. Since then, I have stopped the File Services for Macintosh, restarted it, and deleted and recreated the MacFile share. It still doesn't show up.
So, who knows whats up?
