I am having some strange issues when trying to mount a network share hosted on a windows 2008 active directory server.
I have setup Windows Server 2008 and Active Directory and created a test share. I also have a standard user that has permission to read and write to the share.
If i connect via apple+k to smb://serverip/share from a standard local user account with the username / password I created in active directory i logon to the server successfully.
However. If I login to the computer with the Active Directory username / password and then try to open the share using the above network path I can map the drive but it appears as a folder with a no entry sign.
If I select all shares from the list of possible shares by Apple+k to smb://serverip then I can successfully read / write to the share.
Behaviour seems very strange, half wondering if Kerberos has something to do with it? Has anyone else seen this behaviour?
Make sure OS X is using the same DNS as the server you are trying to get the shares from. It also helps if are both using the NTP (Time) source. Lastly if you are using a WORKGROUP sharing did you go to System Preferences->Network, Advanced button, WINS tab and put in the WORKGROUP name?
