I connect my xserver to m$ AD and use acl's - this seems to work fine until recently. I have started to use the acl's to deny permissions to certain directories. Now i seem to constantly get apple file server errors and it randomly kicks everyone off the server every morning - if i restart all will work until the following morning.

Initially i thought it was because there was no slapd.conf - fixed this and all seemed well. However now am getting this issue:

com.apple. (com.apple.AppleFileServer Exited abnormally Bus error

    Rik,

    Unfortunately, I and several others have this issue as well. Apple has been notified, and all requests for updates result in "there is no new information at this time". 10.5.7 did not fix the issue for me.

    The only "fix" that someone I know has had is to remove the "deny all" acl from all the share points/directories. Apple has been notified of this "fix" and considers it an "unacceptable workaround".

    At this point, a few of us are working to escalate, but considering we notified them months ago about this, I have little hope this'll get fixed before 10.6. =(

    Please do keep us posted if you figure out anything.

    btw, here's my old thread on this: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=8857952

    None of the solutions posted helped, what-so-ever.

    I too have been having this problem, I certainly had it with 10.5.5, 10.5.6 and 10.5.7, I can't remember but may have also had it with 10.5.4. I am using Deny All ACL on some folders but need this to properly secure access.

    I did report it back when, but mere AppleCare Premium support doe snot get you much response

    Well, I did the remove ACLs thing, and it didn't fix the problem. Downgrading to 10.5.4 didn't fix it either.

    I and a couple other people are currently in conversation with AppleCare Enterprise about this issue... hopefully we'll get a fix out of this.

    I'll post more when I have something... which I hope is soon.
  • stazeii Level 1 Level 1 (10 points)
    Let me correct...

    The fix was not removing the "Deny All"... it was changing any R/W ACLs to Full Control, and re-propagating.

    But, needless, I removed all ACLs from my share, and added back one full control, and I'm still seeing the crash.

    sigh

    Thanks - this has stopped the crashing for now but it would be nice to see a real fix from apple soon. 10.58 perhaps?
