sbs 2003 and macintosh issues
Posted on 2007-03-22
I have recently set up a SBS 2003 server at a clients. They have 1 mac machine that has to tie into the server. I know nothing about MAC, so I set the server up the way I allways do using the .local as the FQDN. The mac is now having issues connecting to the server. At one point, I had it seeing the shared drives, but I couldn't get it to recognize exchange, then I got it to recognize exchange, but now it won't see the shared drives. I had a "mac" expert go out and look at it. He said the only way to fix it is to the server domain from .local to .something else. Also, apprently since the "mac" expert has left, it no longer connects to the exchange server either. I have two questions:
1. Do I have to change the domain name of the server to fix this problem, or is their another way
2. If I have to change the domain name, do I have to reinstall SBS 2003 in order to do it (as I have so far read), or is their another way.
