    Hi guys,

    I have recently upgraded from OS 10.6 to 10.7 and am now having problems with SMB shares from my NAS box.

    If I map the share in finder I get a problem where it says permission denied and the folder had a red no entry sign on the icon. But If I SSH into the NAS as either root or Admin and check the folder permissions that seem ok. I cannot map the drive as root because its an internal account and can only be used to gain access via SSH.

    But If you compare that to the screenshots of the folders in finder I am confused as to why I can't gain access.

    Any suggestions guys, is it to do with apple removing samba from lion. Someone must be able to point me in the right direction.

    I'm having exactly the opposite problem; I've got a machine running Ubuntu Server 11.04, and the SMB share works perfectly, but I can't SSH to it; it rejects my password, even though I'm typing it correctly!

    Does your NAS have a web configuration interface? Might be a clue around there regarding permissions to do with the account you're ssh'ing with.

    I was reading about this only half an hour on an article on the net. Sadly though i can't find the original article which gave a very simple solution.

    It was something to do with Apple turning off a component used in connecting to NAS drives. The article said Apple wants users to do a firmware upgrade when available from their NAS manufacturer.

    In the meantime and although not the same article take a look here and try out the terminal commands in this guide and see if they work for you: CLICK HERE AND TRY THIS FIX

    Yeah there are issues with NAS I have 2 mac's one is still on SL and that one can connect normally to my iOmega NAS but the one with Lion has problems connecting to my NAS I get that no entry icon to most of the folders on the NAS...... and for some it just does not display the contents inside the folders and I know content is there in those folders..... a big fail...... needless to say I am lucky that I did not upgrade my main comp to Lion.

    I like some of new features in Lion but don't get the logic why break a perfectly working thing that used to work senselessly earlier.

    Cheers for the help guys,
    @ Draeconis Yes it does have a web interface but the permissions page and the Admin account has write access to all shares.

    @ rcanpolat unfortunately my NAS doesn't Support AFP and the hack around didn't work

    What I ended up doing was enabling NFS and mounting the drive in terminal like so. The only problem with that is that I have had to open up the share to the subnet. but shouldn't cause to much of a problem.
    mkdir ~/Desktop/NAS-SHARE
    sudo mount_nfs -P ib-nas4220-b:/mnt/md1/public ~/Desktop/NAS-PUBLIC
    I was so close to buying a time capsule, and I would put a bet that since the release of lion time capsule sales have gone up.

    I have exactly the same issue here.
    The strange thing is, I can browse the folders in terminal, and also open documents in the folders that are denied in the gui.

    Also, it seems it`s just directories that are denied in Finder, and not files on the root share level.

    I`m pretty sure you would be able to play The Hurt Locker.avi file in the screenshot.

    I could open documents on the root share folder, but not directories below.

    hi warrmr,

    i have the exact same problem with ib-nas 4220 and lion. i would like to solve this issue like you did, but i don't quite understand what you mean by opening up the share to the subnet. can you guide me thru this?
