Mac OSX Leopard fails to connect to file share

Asked By 50 points N/A Posted on -


On a pair of Windows Server 2008 R2 Machines, I set up a failover-clustered file share.  This setup is functioning properly along with the Windows clients as well as with Macs running 10.6 Snow Leopard.  But Leopard is not responding during connection as they should. I don’t believe that this is caused by the failover-clustered part of the equation, but there may be a possibility that it is the reason.

So here's what happens on the Leopard machines.  When a machine running Leopard attempts to connect, it tries for a bit, and then asks for the username and password to connect with (as expected). The username and password are entered (correctly), and almost immediately it comes back with the message:

A volume failed to mount. The volume "Home" could not be mounted.

When that box is dismissed, it continues to attempt to connect for a short time, and then it comes up with this unexpected error:

I'll appreciate all the help I can get!Thanks in advance.


Sorry, the operation cold not be completed because an unexpected error occurred. (Error code -6602)

Mac OSX Leopard fails to connect to file share


Dear Brent

According to the error message u got "A volume failed to mount" followed with the error "Error code -6602", this may happen because of some PC file sharing settings.

If u try to turn off simple file sharing this may get the problem fixed. To disable simple file sharing in your Mac OSX leopard, go to 'System Preferences', under 'Internet & Network' u will find the icon 'Sharing' click it and then make sure that the list in the left hand side contains no check marks.

Close the 'Sharing' window. Now try again to connect and u probably will find no error messages.

Hope this may help you.

Best of luck
