Can not see Windows 2003 Shared Folders from Mac OSX and Win95
Posted on 2004-08-12
Recently we implemented a Windows 2003 file server. After transferring all files to the new server and setting up permissions to duplicate those on the old file server, we found that we are unable to see some of the folders being shared out (e.g. Mac OSX users cannot access their personal files). File sharing for Macintosh is installed and running as a service on the 2003 server. If it helps at all, I was not able to see the same folders from a Windows 98 client, but could get in to the folders by typing in the exact location of the folder we could not see (e.g. \\servername\FacultyandStaff). The previous file servers were Windows 2000 and all Mac OSX clients could access what they needed to. What's different between 2000 and 2003? Any ideas?
