File Server for Mac service cannot be started
Posted on 2008-06-25
I'm moving from a dedicated Windows Server 2000 machine to using a Windows Server 2003 Virtual Private Server (VPS). An application we use relys on Mac users being able to access files and for this we previously installed "File Server for Mac" and have tried to the same again. However, whenever the service tries to start I get an error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start. After checking this may be due to the Apple protocol not being made available.
Has anyone any experience of installing this type of thing on Virtual Machine or VPSs? If so is this a case of can't do on a VPS or just not having the correct privalages?
One additional thing to consider is that we do not want to have to force Mac users to install anything on their systems.
