Once I mount a distant SMB quantity with macOS’s file sharing function like as:

osascript -e 'mount quantity "smb://USER@MACOS_SERVER/VOLNAME"

nevertheless it fails with Error -5014.

What I attempted have been:

  • rebooting the shopper
  • restarting smbd with kill/launchctl on the server
  • on/off “File Sharing” at “Sharing” of Preferences app.

Any concepts?

In accordance with D.R.C.’s reply in What’s Error -5014 ?? – Apple Group, one doable resolution is to take away ‘Apple’ recordsdata on the amount, equivalent to:

  • .AppleDB, .AppleDesktop, :2eDS_Store, .DS_Store, and many others. talked about by D.R.C.
  • and in addition .DAV, .TemporaryItems, .apdisk, ._*.

I attempted eradicating these recordsdata and the error went away.
