How to use Windows 2003 as a file server for OS X
Posted on 2006-06-11
Does anyone know the best solution for this problem?
As far as my online research shows, the MAC OS file System (HFS) and Windows NTFS are incompatible. I was able to set up File Sharing for Macintosh on the Win03 server, share afolder ect. But when copying up a large folder, I get:
Can not copy the item: "file name" because the name is too long or includes characters that the disk cannot display.
I think it has something to do with the way the MAC creates it's file names or something.
I have a client that has 3 MAC OS X machines, and they bought a new Windows 2003 server, and want to use it as the file server, but I can't get their data there. This has been driving me crazy for weeks now. Any ideas or options?
Thanks all, Ken
