Intel-based Macs and SBS 2003

Post by David Star » Thu, 11 May 2006 03:37:54

I'm an IT guy for a non-profit that is running OSX 10.3.9 workstations and
SBS 2003. A new Intel-based Mac laptop (running OSX 10.4.6) was brought in
to the mix, and I can't get it to log in to the Server like I do with the
other Macs. I installed the MSUAM for Mac on it and that was no help.

I appreciate anyone's experience and expertise on this.

It may help if you would tell us exactly what happens when you attempt
to log on to the server from the new Mac.

I am no expert, but I have an Intel Mac and I have no problem getting
onto the network here at work, either through wireless or through
internet, with both OSX and Windows XP Professional. It also works with
my wireless network at home (but it is an open network (i.e. no
encryption), and the computer finds the connection automatically.

The ethernet connection here at work does not require a password, so all
I had to do was put in the right ISP numbers and it worked.

I had initial difficulties on the PC side with the Mac, and my IT guy
here said that it was because there was interference between two setups
I had tried to set up while trying to connect with Windows. He did
something to fix it, but I didn't watch. apparently it is due to two
cards in the Mac interfering with each other.

Try erasing all the setups and starting from scratch. If you can't find
the answer, I can give you the email of my IT guy, who is very good both
with Macs and PCs.

What happens when you try to connect? What steps are you taking to

The MS UAM, from what I've read in these forums, does not work on the
Intel Macs so you should probably start by removing that.
