We have been using a Windows 2003 Standard Server, running the Windows "File Server for MacIntosh" service as an Apple file server for quite a while. Now users are getting a "Cant mount volume" error message when trying to connec using the AFP connection method. They are able to connect using the SMB protocol, however for various reasons we need to use the AFP connection method.

Over the weekend our backup, using BackupExec 11d failed on this server. It hung up trying to do a scan prior to actually performing the backup.

The server's event log has numerous entries showing:

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Backup Exec
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      57481
Date:            1/5/2009
Time:            7:11:25 AM
User:            N/A
Computer:      CPSTORAGE
Description:
An unusual error (1117) was encountered while enumerating the contents of the directory:

 \\CPSTORAGE\E:\MassTransit\Mailbox\Sent\GiftBox AR.

 It is possible that files or subdirectories have not been backed up. Please examine your job log or catalogs to ensure this directory tree was backed up in its entirety.

The only thing that changes in each Event Log entry is the name of the file on the CPStorage server that BackupExec is trying to access.

I did a server reboot, removed the FIle Sharing for MacIntosh service and reinstalled it.
User's permissions have not changed.

Appreciate any guidance that can be offered.
