    Just upgraded. Now I cannot see my music server. Access Denied.
    Tried a number of fixes, no dice.
    Suggestions???

    Are you using the "Remote Desktop Admin" program?

    Found the fix!
    Instead of using the long username (ex. "John Smith") use the short name (ex. "johnsmith").

    The default is the long username.

    Double click on the client to edit and change the long username to the short name.

    Bingo!

    What a pain in the arse tho'.

    Come on Apple, you're better than this!
