I have a couple of workstations running Mac OS X 10.4.10 (Intel and PPC) at different companies that all show the same symptom. The Apple File Server shuts down and is shortly thereafter restarted by configd.

Here is the log entry in AppleFileServiceError.log:

13/Nov/2007:12:42:08 0100: Server shut down.

... and this is what gets logged to system.log:

Nov 13 12:42:09 tiger_client configd[38]: executing /usr/sbin/AppleFileServer


As far as I can see only sharepoints on the startup drive dissappear, other sharepoints are still visible in the dialog and available.

Restarting the AppleFileServer with the following command:

Code:

sudo kill -HUP `cat /var/run/AppleFileServer.pid`


... does not help while running these command:

Code:

sudo kill `cat /var/run/AppleFileServer.pid`
sudo /usr/sbin/AppleFileServer


... does bring back all of the missing sharepoints.

A workaround is easy. Watch for changes to the AppleFileServer.pid file, kill AppleFileServer and launch it again. But it would be great to know why the sharepoints dissappear. There is no other log entry in any log file that tells me why the AppleFileServer shuts down in the first place or why it fails to offer those missing sharepoints.
