NT volume size not showing correctly on Macs.
Posted on 2003-03-23
We have an NT 4 server which has just had its primary operating system drive replaced. It has service pack 6 installed. Our problem is that the Macs now cannot see the true size of volumes on the various hard drives (some are up to 36GB in size). I am aware of the registry changes required to make the volumes appear as 4GB in size to the Macs, but obviously I want them to display at true size. Prior to replacing the primary drive, we did not have this problem, as I believe that "certain changes" were made to get around this issue. The Macs are G4's running OS 8, 9 & 10.
We are running Mac file services and Mac printing on the NT 4 server.
I do not want to add any third party software to fix this other than service packs or hot fixes.
