I have recently migrated a number of afp network shares from one server
to another. The old server was Fedora 7, running netatalk 2.0.3, the new
server is Centos 6.4, running netatalk 2.2.0-2. The directory trees
being shared were rsync'd from one server to another, via nfs shares
(just happened to be handy at the time). All my clients are running
patched up Mac Snow Leopard, 10.6.8. My shares in AppleVolumes.default
are home, drive, some other dirs and TimeMachine shares. Config between
the servers was migrated mostly as is. Possibly of note, the new server
has the same static IP as the old server used to have, but has a
different hostname. Old server, retains original hostname, but has new
IP on LAN.
Now for my issue. Whilst I had both servers running, the network shares
on the new server work perfectly. However as soon as I turn off the old
server, the network shares on the new server fail. Snow Leopard will
appear to login, shows me all the shares in Finder, but times out
getting a directory listing. I get this error:
The operation can’t be completed because the original item for “arthur”
can’t be found.
Turn the old server back on, and it all works again on the new server! I
tried shutting down atalk and avahi-deamon services on the old server,
and still the new server afp shares work fine. But turn it off
completely and the same error above.
I've tried deleting all .AppleDouble dirs in the entire directory tree
being shared. Tried turning up logging (-setuplog) but no errors or
warnings, the only notes were of me logging in. I've tried trimming down
shares to just one simple dir, but still no joy.
Any other ideas? It's obviously referencing the old server somewhere,
probably failing and then dying somehow. Can't find any mention in
config files. Could it be some other hidden Apple files? Can't find any
mention of this issue anywhere on Google... Help!
