After upgrading to MacOS X Lion, it was discovered that it was not possible to logon to Novell-shares and NAS-boxes (e.g. Qnap).

 

Here is a recipe that has been tested OK with the following combinations:

* Mac OS X Lion -> Novell shares

* Mac OS X Lion -> Mac OS X 10.5 server

* Mac OS X Lion -> Mac OS X Lion

 

Please note that the command-lines themselves must not have CR/NL-characters. Copy the commands to a text-editor and remove format-inserted CR/NL-characters.

 

Another note: Your logon will be less secure with these changes. Later when e.g. Novell and/or your NAS-box support native Lion-logon, then please remove the AppleShareClient-parameter changes again with the first block.

Recipe:

 

The following block can be skipped if you have not previously changed AppleShareClient-parameters:

 

sudo -s

chmod o+w /Library/Preferences

cd  /Library/Preferences/

rm com.apple.AppleShareClient.plist*

! Restart

 

The following block makes it possible to logon to: (1) Novell-shares (2) Pre Lion Mac-OS-X-volumes - and possibly non-native Lion logon NAS-shares:

 

sudo -s

chmod o+w /Library/Preferences

defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleShareClient afp_host_prefs_version -int 1

! Restart

 

You now have to logon a real account (non-guest) on another Mac OS X Lion volume

to catalyst a creation of AppleShareClient-files. (See Apple-support-link) (Is this necessary?)

! instead?:

/bin/sleep 60

 

chmod o+w /Library/Preferences

defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleShareClient afp_disabled_uams -array "Cleartxt Passwrd" "MS2.0" "2-Way Randnum exchange"

defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleShareClient afp_disabled_uams -array "DHX2"

defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleShareClient afp_disabled_uams -array "DHCAST128"

 

chmod o-w /Library/Preferences

 

PS:

 

Possibly all volume-links may be deletes and recreated to use the new logon-parameters?
