Still no fix for SMB and WebDAV mounting issues. I would recommend staying with 10.8.5 for now, if you use your Mac for connecting to shares at work.

Seconded. Their broken SMB implementation is the source of a lot of frustration. Too late for me unfortunately, I've had to resort to using SFTP just to copy files around the home network because OS X can't share files properly. Grr. On the upside, SFTP is much quicker than SMB/CIFS.

The fact that it's now a fairly old problem that still hasn't been fixed suggests to me that they're deliberately not fixing it to break interoperability with non OS-X devices.

At least on 10.8.x I could install SMBUp to regain proper filesharing, but that doesn't work on my 10.9 machine.

From what I understand SMB wasn't going to be included into OS X 10.8 and was only included in at the last minute due to pressure put on the software development team. Not surprised it does't work in 10.9

Workgroup manager was also rumored to be culled from 10.9 Server but I haven't had a chance to play with it yet so can't say for sure.

Yes I've moved all my work files from the server to Google Drive...to be honest it has ended up being a much better outcome for me. Maybe Apple are trying to focus people towards "cloud based" storage. Just like getting rid of the DVD drive.

Hmm, I wonder what causes the SMB issues; I've been running 10.9 since launch day and everything works fine for me. There must be something special about your configuration; is there anything strange about the server that you're connecting to?

SBS2008. You can get around the problem by using CIFS instead which forces SMB1. OS X10.9 tries to connect with SMB2 and this causes the problem. Not only that but WebDAV is seriously broken. There are heaps of forums out there with the SMB and WebDav problem. I have sent bug reports to Apple and they have been in touch with me several times for more info.

Ahh, it looks like my old 2003 server doesn't have SMB2 so that'll be why I've never run into the issue.

I also have 10.9 since it released and have had no issues connecting to our SBS2008 box.
What does the issue look like?
How does it present itself?

The issue I have is sharing files on an NTFS volume _from_ OS X _to_ any *nix based device (Linux, Android). They simply can't access the shares ny more.

The volume in question gets accessed via a Win7 OS as well (dualboot) so needs to be NTFS, ExFAT may work but I doubt it'd fix the issue.

The hack of forcing CIFS\SMB1 to access other shares _from_ OS X works fine.
