Error Messages


"Cannot run with other SMB/CIFS/Microsoft networking servers on the same machine. Error Code: 48"

There are two causes of this error:

1. OS X 10.7, Lion, and the Firewall

In Lion, the built-in Firewall can cause ADmitMac or DAVE to report this error on installation.  This is a bug in the Firewall that has been reported to Apple.  To work around the issue, launch the System Preferences and click the Security & Privacy pane.  On the Firewall tab, stop the Firewall, then reboot the Mac.  You should then be able to install ADmitMac or DAVE.

2. Windows File Sharing

There is a known issue where if your home folder grows in size and nears, or has reached, the amount of hard disk space alloted to your domain account, you will not receive a disk quota warning. Instead, once the disk quota is met, you will no longer be able to save files to your home folder.

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

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.
