Why does it say "Connection Failed" when I click the server in the Sidebar?

In Mac OS X v10.5 (Leopard), Apple made some significant changes to the Mac OS Finder and the Sidebar, and these changes persist in Mac OS X v10.6 (Snow Leopard). You will not be able to access Windows servers through the sidebar, but will be able to access the volumes once you have mounted them using either the ADmitMac Browser, or by entering the path into the Server Address field in "Go - Connect to Server". We have been made to understand that it is a bug in the Finder that keeps network volumes from working properly in the Sidebar, and that Apple is working to resolve it.

When I try to access my Windows computer with DAVE, why am I prompted for a username, password and domain even though I don't have a domain network?

If you use DAVE to access a Windows NT, 2000 or XP computer, the PC will request authentication. This authentication is similar to the Domain authentication required when using Microsoft's server line of products. If you are not in a domain environment, you can just leave that field blank.

Why do I not have "OU" and "Mappings" tabs in my ADmitMac settings?

These settings only appear if you join the Mac to an Active Directory (AD) domain using the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN). If you join the Active Directory domain using the short name (NetBIOS name) of the domain, ADmitMac will assume it is an NT domain. To join it to the AD, you would need to remove the current domain binding and join it using the FQDN.

If your network is not Active Directory (when you join the computer to an NT domain network) those options are not available in the ADmitMac Directory Access Plugin properties.

If the software you are installing is not from a special VLA disk image, you will get prompted for a license code. You will need to install the software from the disk image provided by the Sales Department, and install any updates afterwards.
