Question about Apple MacBook Pro Laptop Computer with Intel Duo Core 15.4 Inch PC Notebook
Customer went to download a AudioBook, this error -5002 AFP Bad UAM came up. What does this mean?
This seems to be related to a network problem, specifically, authentication. Has anything been changed or upgraded recently? There are a number of references to the error on the internet. I have attached them below.
Firstly, one user has looked at the /var/log/messages log file and found the additional error "uam: uam not found (status=-1"
Can you check that log?
A fix suggested by one user is:
"Turns out I needed to update the nettalk version that was included with YDL 2.3 to version 126.96.36.199-1c. After that and a restart apple talk works perfectly, on both our os9 and X machines." Maybe there is a lead there.
Attached bits from other users below.
Apparently, this error is "-5002 afpBadUAM: AFP Bad UAM," something to do with the User Authentication Module.
I've looked in var/log/messages
>>and it says : uam: uam not found (status=-1)
Good Luck. If you need to talk further, pls post it here. Rgds,
