I have the same problem since I updated to 10.4.6, I think mount_smbfs is corrupt, and will try fixing it

Yep copied mount_smbfs from my install dvd, and chmod it as 777 and all is good in 10.4.6 mounting smb shares

-------------------

I have os 10.4.5 working perfectly with samba share ....
since i upgrade i'm back to the old pb:
'alias could not be opened" (i have modified my GP)

Have you got a solution ?
copying mount_smbfs from my install dvd is going to help me ?
If it is yes .... how can i do that ?

Thank you

Found in the forum....

/sbin/mount_smbfs.

I already replaced the smbfs.kext with no success. Now I try with this file...

Not sure if this matches your issue too, but I had a problem connecting to my NAS server (linux running samba), and windows shared folders across the network

I found out that it was related to passwords, more specifically, the way passwords are transmitted from OSx.

I had to make a new file called /etc/nsmb.conf
and make it read:

[default]
minauth=0

Save and exit (whoops, there goes my windows brain again) and restart.

Again, this solved my issue, but I don't know if it will work for you. Just wanted to get it out there.

I've replaced the mount_smbfs and done chmod 777 ./mount_smbfs from the /sbin/ directory, but now have a different error. It says, "The Finder cannot complete the operation because some data in "smb://SERVERNAME" could not be read or written. (Error code -36) I'm trying to find the smbfs.kext file on the install DVD to replace the one on my hard drive, but I'm not sure where to look. Any suggestions?

try this

step 1 : download Attached File  smbfs.kext.zip   203.72KB   1620 downloads
step 2 : open terminal (located in applications / utilities)
step 3 : sudo -s (then enter root password)
step 4 : rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/smbfs.kext
step 5 : cd /Users/yourusername/Desktop
step 6 : unzip smbfs.kext.zip
step 7 : cp -R smbfs.kext /System/Library/Extensions/
step 8 : rm -R /System/Library/Extensions.mkext
step 9 : rm -R /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache
step 10 : chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/smbfs.kext
step 11 : chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/smbfs.kext
step 12 : shutdown -r now

computer will restart then try connection to smb server :blink:

let me know if it works please as it did for me.

P.S. had no need to replace 10.4.6 mount_* commands with 10.4.5 as this worked, may differ to other users.

while you are doing it, you could replace all the mount_* files upgraded with 4.6 with the working previous versions.

That worked like a charm.

I think you're right. It doesn't look like you should have to replace any of the mount_ files in order to get it to work.

Thanks for all the help!

Vas instructions works also to Jas 1.0.4.8 version. Before appying it had the usual error code -50

be careful to disable "microsoft server: digitally signed authentications" from local security, domain controller policies, if you want to connect to a primary domain controller

I was having the same trouble, the dreaded error code -50 and applying an older SambaFix for 10.4.6.pkg.dmg over my up to date 10.4.8 fixed it

below you have the patch attached in case anyone needs it

I have 10.4.10 and the same problem (error 50). However, even after installing the 10.4.6 fix of zu1u the problem remains. Any suggestions? Thanx
