Hi.  I have one Mac user in my org running Leopard OSX.  Today he lost visibility of our file server, which is also a DC.  Server is Win2k3 Standard, SP1.  He can see and connect to all other servers and machines on the network except for this one.  I've tried manual connect through afp by both host name and IP address and still nothing.  I haven't made any changes to the server and am stumped.  I did notice in the server shares that I don't have a mac share or a UAM volume created but can't remember if this was by original design or not.  Didn't think I needed it with Leopard(?) but it's been awhile since I even looked at networking for the mac.  Have not tried a simple server reboot but will reboot tonight when everyone is off.   ty:)
