I cant access the root share of a windows server after upgrading to mountain lion

Hi Guys,
Since upgrading to mountain lion i cant access the shared drives on our windows server. For example in a windows machine if i go to run the type \\server\ i get all the visible shares available. in my previous version i was able to do the same (obviously i would authenticate with my AD account). now when i try to access those same shares i get the message below:
"The operation cant be completed becuase the original item for "/" cant be found"
I can however connect to the shares directly for example if i connect to server path \\server\data it works ok.
I have verified my account details and they are ok - i have also disconnected and reconnected the connection.
This was working fine before the upgrade. can anyone help??

well iv just managed to get to 35 gig free (just deleting iphone backups) and im now able to get past the next screen on bootcamp.
unfortunatly its only allowing me to create a new partition not delete the current.
this is leading me to think the old ones master partition has become damaged and the hard drive dosent know it exists any more.
if this is the case (please tell me im wrong though) what options do i have as i dont want to / have the money to buy another hard drive to back everything up to it with.
thanks again

    my log in window shows btoh my user account and the system administrator (root) acount. how do i not show the system accout on the log in window?

    I think you need to disable the root user assuming you have it enabled.
    Navigate thus;
    /Applications/Utilities/Directory Utility
    ...and then.....

  • Cant Access windows 8 after upgrading to mountain lion

    a few weeks ago i upgraded my lion to mountain lion
    i had windows 8 installed with boot camp on a seperate partition (i only use windows 8 for my astrophotography as certain specilised apps i use are sadly windows only)
    now as i hadnt had any clear skys upuntill a few nights ago i hadnt needed to go into my windows 8 (and hadnt noticed its disapearence till now)    althrough looking on my mac i can see all trace of it even existing has gone (apart from the fact my hard drive (250gig) is still showing the split 189 gig (windows being 61)
    just tried the windows 8 disk see if i can recover it and it told me the partition is locked and needs to be unlocked
    im not bothered about anything on the windows side (to the point i tried to use bootcamp to wipe it and start again) but it says you need more than 10gig free (i had 13 at the time)  and wont let me go to the setting for deleting ect only as far as downloading the bootcamp drivers.
    so does any one have any ideas how to recover, unlock or even to get rid of and start it again without effecting my mac partition as i dont have enough space to back everything up (and im not currently financially able to buy another hard drive just for that purpose.)
    many thanks in advance

  • Unable to access connected server after upgrade to Mountain Lion

    I upgraded from snow leopard to mountain lion and now am unable to connect to my server.
    The error given is "there was a problem connecting to the server"
    And in console I get a sharepointbrowser error
    There are a few other posts on this but none seem to actually have a fix (for example one recc. was to reboot a bunch of times) I would think deleting/removing the server from the list would work but I don't know how to do that.
    I can access the share if I cmd-k and access it manually though so it isn't a SMB issue it seems to be a mountain lion/OS issue.

    Hi DWAM_2
    Same question to matthew:
    1. Are you accessing the KVM through CIMC?
    If so, try using a monitor, the CIMC may have been restored to default and has no IP address
    Verify(ping) as well that you can reach CIMC and if you do use https://
    Also, verify if you connected to the connect ethernet port :)
    2. Did you upgrade using HUU(Host Upgrade Utility)
    If you didnt, you may have a problem there, both BIOS and ucs firmware needs to be compatible with each other. That is why cisco developed HUU to assist in updating
    3. Still does work?
    You might need to reset the CMOS, check the manual of your C-series
    Typically, you need to short out some pins inside the server or worse case, you might need Cisco's tech support  on site
    to reload the firmware through hardware

  • After upgrading to Mountain Lion, I repurchased Garageband and I can't get passed the complete installation. I don't seem to have the "com.apple.garageband.plist" file that has been a common solution. Any suggestions?

    After upgrading to Mountain Lion, I repurchased Garageband and I can't get passed the complete installation. I've read through several posts that all reference the "com.apple.garageband.plist" solution. I don't seem to have the referenced .plist. Any solutions or suggestions?

    Did you upgrade from SnowLeopard?
    I can't get passed the complete installation
    What exactly is happening? Is GarageBand trying to download over and over again?
    all reference the "com.apple.garageband.plist" solution. I don't seem to have the referenced .plist.
    The property list stores your preferences, but also the settings from the last run of the application.  If that file is corrupted in some way, you might see third behaviour.
    You must have this file, for it will be recreated automatically, if it is missing, or you have a permissions problem with your user library.
    Perhaps you did look in he wrong place.
    in MacOS 10.7. or later the User Library is hidden. To find the Preferences Files use the Finder's "Go" menu:
    Quit GarageBand, if it is running.
    Click onto you Desktop to bring the Finder forward.
    In the Finder Menu press "Go" and hold down the "option/alt" key, until your user library appears in the drop-down menu
    Select "Library" and in the Finder window that opens navigate to the "Prederences" folder; move com.apple.garageband.plist to the Desktop.
    Log off and on again (don't skip that step!). Retry GarageBand and see if it GarageBand is now downloading the missing content properly.
    If that does not fix the problem, post back and explain in more detail what the download problem is.
    Why did you "repurchase" GarageBand? If you already owned GarageBand '11, it should be unnecessary.
    Regards
    Léonie

    There have been a few threads about this.  The feature seems to have gone missing in Mountain Lion even though the Help for Preview still mentions it.
    I've filed a bug report on it.

  • After upgrading to mountain lion, the movies I create using iDVD periodically stop then resume abruptly when I play them back on my DVD player. Any ideas on correcting this?

    After upgrading to mountain lion, the movies/slideshows I create using iDVD playback in a jolting start/stop manner. This didn't happen with the prior os - playbacks were flawless. Any ideas, short of uninstalling mountain lion, on how to correct?

    I know this is not much help. IDVD and Mountain Lion are working perfectly for me.  I know many others that use Mountain Lion with iDVD also.
    I think your problem lies elsewhere.

  • The Airplay Icon is not showing up on My Taskbar After Upgrading to Mountain Lion

    Please help.  I have 2nd generation Apple TV and a 2011 Imac but the Airplay Icon will not show up on Taskbar after upgrading to Mountain Lion.

    Finally after trying to uninstall/reinstall (no luck!)
    I'm on Windows 7 64 bit.  iTunes 10.7   And I have a solution:
    If found a thread about IPv6.
    I followed the same directions on Windows 7 64 bit and it worked.
    Disable IPv6 on _all_ of your IP ethernet adapters. 
    That includes Virtual Machines (VMWare... yes those too), including IPv6 for wireless.
    Close iTunes.  Start iTunes.  Works.  Airplay Icon is back.
    It looks like All of the AirPlay devices may have to be re-setup.  At the very least rebooted.
    I found that I had to clompletely erase my DHCP addresses from my (non Apple) router.. and that fixed it.  Finally.
    Even though this is for the Mac... I believe they are onto something.   Original thread link:

  • Cant access a DFS share from a Windows 7 computer

    I am having DFS share access issues with a Windows 7 workstation.
    My setup is I have 6 windows 7 stations accessing this DFS Share.
    All computers have the same Administrator password and another User/Password
    All but 1 are working as they should.
    The DFS share is running under Server 2008 R2 and contains files from this and another server.
    From the workstation, I can see the server under Network.
    I can open it and see the individually shared volumes and I have full read/write permissions.
    I can see the DFS share and I can map it.
    If I try to open the shared volumes within the DFS file I get a message saying I dont have permission.
    Interestingly, when I look at the properties of the DFS share form the workstation, I dont see a DFS tab.
    If I do this from a workstation is is able to connect fully to the share, I see a DFS tab in the properties.
    I tried to include everything,
    Thanks in advance

       I use Grapher 2D 3D on my early 2006 iMac, but I tried it on my wife's Macbook Pro with Lion then Mountain Lion : no problem with Grapher 2.1  3D gcx files, Grapher 2.3 loves them !
       You can try the 3D Grapher 2.1 files from the website  http://y.barois.free.fr/grapher/  and see the result on your Mac Mountain Lion.
       I updated Grapher documentation and bugs of this website on 15th december 2012 (Lion, then Mountain Lion).

    I have a macbook that is white and it has the osx version 10.6.8,  can i upgage to Mountain Lion?

    Upgrade Paths to Snow Leopard, Lion, and/or Mountain Lion
    You can upgrade to Mountain Lion from Lion or directly from Snow Leopard. Mountain Lion can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $19.99. To access the App Store you must have Snow Leopard 10.6.6 or later installed.
    Upgrading to Snow Leopard
    You can purchase Snow Leopard through the Apple Store: Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard — Apple Store (U.S.). The price is $19.99 plus tax. You will be sent physical media by mail after placing your order.
    After you install Snow Leopard you will have to download and install the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 to update Snow Leopard to 10.6.8 and give you access to the App Store. Access to the App Store enables you to download Mountain Lion if your computer meets the requirements.
         Snow Leopard General Requirements
           1. Mac computer with an Intel processor
           2. 1GB of memory
           3. 5GB of available disk space
           4. DVD drive for installation
           5. Some features require a compatible Internet service provider;
               fees may apply.
           6. Some features require Apple’s iCloud services; fees and
               terms apply.
    Upgrading to Lion
    If your computer does not meet the requirements to install Mountain Lion, it may still meet the requirements to install Lion.
    You can purchase Lion by contacting Customer Service: Contacting Apple for support and service — this includes international calling numbers. The cost is $19.99 (as it was before) plus tax.  It's a download. You will get an email containing a redemption code that you then use at the Mac App Store to download Lion. Save a copy of that installer to your Downloads folder because the installer deletes itself at the end of the installation.
         Lion System Requirements
           1. Mac computer with an Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7,
               or Xeon processor
           2. 2GB of memory
           3. OS X v10.6.6 or later (v10.6.8 recommended)
           4. 7GB of available space
           5. Some features require an Apple ID; terms apply.
    Upgrading to Mountain Lion
    To upgrade to Mountain Lion you must have Snow Leopard 10.6.8 or Lion installed. Purchase and download Mountain Lion from the App Store. Sign in using your Apple ID. Mountain Lion is $19.99 plus tax. The file is quite large, over 4 GBs, so allow some time to download. It would be preferable to use Ethernet because it is nearly four times faster than wireless.
         OS X Mountain Lion — System Requirements
           Macs that can be upgraded to OS X Mountain Lion
             1. iMac (Mid 2007 or newer) — Model Identifier 7,1 or later
             2. MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer) —
                 Model Identifier 5,1 or later
             3. MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer) — Model Identifier 3,1 or later
             4. MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer) — Model Identifier 2,1 or later
             5. Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer) — Model Identifier 3,1 or later
             6. Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer) — Model Identifier 3,1 or later
             7. Xserve (Early 2009) — Model Identifier 3,1 or later
    To find the model identifier open System Profiler in the Utilities folder. It's displayed in the panel on the right.
    Are my applications compatible?
             See App Compatibility Table — RoaringApps.

  • After upgrading to Mountain Lion, I cannot connect to my Airport Extreme on the 5GHz band (2.4GHz works fine)...what's going on?

    I have been having intermittent/no wireless success on the 5GHz band of my Airport Extreme.  I'm on an iMac early 2008.  It was working fine before upgrading to Mountain Lion.  I have tried many things (deleting the wireless network, readding it, changing settings on the AirPort Extreme, deleting the 5GHz network on that and readding it, running diagnostics) but nothing has fixed it.  I can switch to the 2.4GHz band and it works flawlessly.  This must be a software problem since it only started happening when I upgraded the OS.
    Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

    No it isn't, I have tried 4 different mountain lion machines connected to a 5Ghz and it works just fine. It is with your machine hence we need to fix it
    create a new location and see if that fixes your issue, If not trash Macintosh HD/Library/System Configuration
    That is a folder so trash it > restart the computer > create a new location
