Hello,

I am trying to get my Mac connected to our SBS 2003, but I am getting the following error: "Connection Failed -13005". I followed what was written in "Small Business Server 2003 Unleashed" for setting up the Macintosh including using AppleTalk and Disable Active Directory, SMB and LDAPv3. I also have set up some shares configured for the Mac, but I am not even getting to the point to be able to see the shares.

Any ideas?

I don't have that book to follow along, but I'm a bit surprised it's telling you to use AppleTalk.  I would use SMB connections and disable SMB signing to allow the connections.

Reference:

Then the mac users would just connect using
smb://sbsServer

I think I will stick with the AppleTalk way for now. Thanks.

Why?  So you can use a method that apple is trying to phase out and Microsoft has included primarily for compatibility with pre OS X operating systems?  The AppleTalk protocol is best used with MacOS 9 and earlier.  OS X is unix based and supports SMB networking.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AppleTalk :
"AppleTalk is a suite of protocols developed by Apple Computer for computer networking. It was included in the original Macintosh (1984) and is now deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP networking."

This link has a document explaining both ways.

OK...I will give it a try. I saw something earlier that mentioned a security issue and freaked out.

I would only add that Eriq Neale who wrote SBS Unleashed is really THE guy who knows about how to integrate Macs with SBS.  You should check out his blog for lots of info:  http://simultaneouspancakes.com/Lessons/

OK...got it to work. I reinstalled SBS 2003 and chose not to use ".local". I chose the ".lan" instead according to the instructions and it worked.

Thanks everyone for your great assistance!
