I actually have 2 issues, the first is simple but all the Google suggestions I have seen haven't worked. 1) I want to create a shortcut to a network location on the Macbook's desktop- ie, there is a shared folder on the network and I want to be able to access it from an icon on the desktop. This is a total breeze in Windows and I cannot get it to work on the Mac. I have tried all forms of drag/drop, apple key+drag, apple+L, etc.- all suggestions I have seen when searching for an answer- and can't get it to work. I know it can be done, I have seen it on other machines, but those folks didn't set them up and cannot help. 2) Our situation is a little unique. We are running SBS 2003 SP2 (just upgraded to SP2 to try and combat this problem, no luck) for our server, and using all Macs for client machines. We are seeing a problem with being able to consistently log in to the network. What I mean is, if we boot the machine, get to the login prompt and login in quickly, we get connected. If we let it wait for 30+ seconds, or say log off when we go to lunch and come back and log in, we cannot- we have to turn the machine off and back on and log in quickly to connect. When it won't connect, it does the thing where it shakes the login box signaling that it cannot log in. This would seem to point to a replication issue, possibly with Active Directory on the SBS, but we're not sure. It could be that it is just using cached credentials when it successfully logs in, we don't know. We've run the SBS analyzer to make sure everything is working properly, and it is- we are completely in line with MS best practices. Any ideas, or links to possible solutions?
