    I have two shares that are always connected on my mac (two folders via smb share). They are NAS devices. They are also connected on numerous other macs in the house. On my mac pro, once in a while, I will click in the share and nothing happens. I will disconnect the share and then try to reconnect, and I just get "Connecting to server" forever (until I cancel). A reboot does the trick, but a reboot is a pain because I have two VM sessions, numerous jobs in queue, etc.

    Is there a way to restart that daemon that handles smb mac shares? I already tried to stop and start network services but that didn't help.
