Mac OS X When you run smbd -V on your Snow Leopard installation, you'll see it's running SAMBA version 3.0.28a-apple. While I'm not sure how much difference the "-apple" makes, version 3.0.28a is old. Very old. In other words, it's riddled with bugs. Apple hasn't updated SAMBA in 3 years, and for Lion, they're dumping it altogether for something homegrown. The reason? SAMBA is now GPLv3.

Well, I followed your instructions, but no matter what I do, I get access denied when I try to mount. What might I be doing wrong?

I've tried a few other guides to this, and none of them worked either.

Any idea how I might diagnose it? Something's clearly not setup right. BTW, I did restart all the krb and atalk processes.

How do you try to mount the share?

-If you're using the links in Finder's Sidebar, you're out of luck, since Apple only uses its own Local KDC setup for this, which needs to be able to discover a remote KDC by use of a special plugin (LKDC Helper og OD Helper) ...

Therefore this approach only works between two Mac OS X computers (server versions included).

Using connect to server, though, works fine for me - full single sign-on from my Linux-based KDC.

-Are you sure your AppleVolumes.default has been setup correctly?

That's really weird. When I was using PAM, I had no problems with authenticating as any particular user or mounting from the Finder sidebar. But with Kerberos, this doesn't work?

I think I'm just going to go back to using SMB. Netatalk is broken in more ways than just random authentication failures. For instance, if you put a Mac to sleep during a backup, it'll lock up because Netatalk doesn't support Replay Cache.

Thanks anyway for your help.
