Well it turns out that shell works on that unit. But we are getting some bizarre paths to the remote volume I am trying to address… so this is not an LC problem.. it’s actually an old problem we’ve had on the LAN here when talking to big 50 Terrabyte server in the other room.
If I do (on my machine)
Brahmanathaswami:volumes Brahmanathaswami$ ls
I get two mounted volumes
% Chola MobileBackups
On the “Mushika Machine”
If I do cd /Volumes | ls
Chola Chola-1 LiveCodeIndy 8[dmg] macintosh HD
So the problem is that the big server on the LAN is somehow mounted twice.
On the desktop it appears mounted as “Chola”
But any attempt to
Shell “open /Volumes/Chola/WWW”
Fails.. Even in terminal.. I get a permissions error… but I can drag the “Chola” icon from the desktop into the terminal and we get
Weird… I think the solution is to reboot the machine and see what we are getting the “presence” of the remote server as two different volumes…
Anyway… not an LC issue. Some kind of Apple Network Volumes Mounting API issue.
