39515: Go > Connect to Server fails when using afp://servername

use Google Translate


Using the "Go > Connect to Server" method to mount Volumes

The IP address and fully qualified hostname works



But using the hostname (servername) fails



If the Fully Qualified Hostname (FQHN) works but the hostname fails, the following steps can be taken to corrrect the problem.

Open System Preferences > Network

Under Search Domains, add your domain name

Example: yourdomain.com

This will allow you to use the hostname instead of having to enter the fully qualified hostname.

Note: You can also use the Network Utility to troubleshoot DNS issues.

Applications:Ultilities:Network Utility


Ping: hostname, FQHN, IP Address

Lookup: hostname, FQHN, IP Address
