File Share authentication issue in MacOS (including SMB and AFP) in an unusual circumstance

*updated on September 19, 2022

I tried the MacOS native File Share feature since I need to share data between the two Macs via LAN. Naturally, this function, which by default is based on SMB, also supports AFP.

An accidental irreversible event happened during the attempt to authenticate, and the error form seemed to have the incorrect user name or password. However, I am confident that the login credentials are correct. Even after reinstalling the system from High Sierra to Catalina (this procedure has taken a long time….), the issue has not been fixed, the error is still present. This outcome looks absurd.

The error message in the console is:

smbd transact: gss_accept_sec_context: major_status: 0xd0000, minor_status: 0xa2e9a74a

After looking around, I found this prompt to be quite inspiring:

Solution: synchronize both the time and time zone of two Macs. Issue is resolved.

Consideration: Rather than starting over with a fresh installation of the system whenever an unclear issue arises, searching for the relevant log in Console will be more essential.

Installation and optimization of “Audiophonics ES9028Q2M”

I really shouldn’t say much about the desire to have a wireless PC-Hifi setup. Despite having a large collection of CDs and LPs, I feel that digitizing my music library would be beneficial in some circumstances.

Though Audiophonics’ official website shows compatibility with Volumio (a multi-platform music player), I have spent a great deal of time in the last several days and, honestly, had quite a terrible experience when piecing together Audiophonics and Volumio.1 Even so, I am really pleased with the sound from DietPi, which is more distinct and pure, as well as the efficient start time and UI design, and, ultimately, the stability when compared to Volumio.

As a result, the purpose of this article is to serve as a resource for serious philharmonicgeeks who have a limited budget but a need for “adequate” high fidelity quality.
