Files on Windows 2003 Server invisible to Mac OS X 10.4 computers.
Posted on 2006-05-22
I am experiencing a strange problem. I have a Windows 2003 Server domain controller. This is running SP1. There are several Mac client machines, all running the latest version (10.4.6) with all relevant updates.
There are several shares defined on the server. Some are shared both to Windows machines and Macs. When the shares were first configured all files for which the Mac users had permissions were visible.
Any files and folders which a Mac user creates / copies within the shared folder are visible to all Mac and PC users.
Any files and folders which a PC user creates / copies within the shared folder are visible to all PC users, but invisible to Mac users.
When checking the Security tab within the problem file's properties, the groups which the Mac users belong to are listed and have Full control permissions (inherited). So as far as I can see there is no reason that the files should not be visible.
We have tried getting the Mac users to disconnect and then reconnect to the server with no luck. I have looked on Microsoft's website with no luck. On the MacWindows website and Apple discussions, there are many people describling the same problems, but with no answers...
Any ideas? I am happy to provide more information if there is anything relevant which I have not mentioned.
Thanks in advance...
