Hello!

First off: thanks for the fantastic software. We've only just started using it but will make a donation if we can figure out our current problem.

We were running SharePoints on a 10.3.x OS X Server box until mid last week, when it up and died on us. We installed Tiger (non-server) on the box and got it back up and running smoothly, except for an odd behaviour that we can't figure out. Our primary share used to be on an internal drive that was not the startup volume but now is. For argument's sake, let's say that the drive is called Bob and the directory is called BobShared. BobShared is at the Root level of Bob, so it's now /BobShared since that is the startup volume (used to be /Volumes/Bob/BobShared). When users with accounts on that machine connect to "Orion.local" from their Finders, using AFP, they see a share called "Bob" but not "BobShared". They can connect to that share and will get a mounted volume called "Bob" which contains, among other things, the directory called "BobShared". If they connect as guests, they will see a Share called "BobShared" (but no "Bob" share) and can mount it but not write to it.

How can we configure the SharePoint so that users with accounts don't see "Bob" and do see "BobShared"?

Thanks!

Jay Goldman

I'm betting that your users are setup to be admin users on the server. If you click the "Admin is Normal User" checkbox in the AFS Properties tab, then all the users should just see BobShared.

That was exactly the issue - thanks!
