Hello....need help...
two mac users connected to sbs 2k3 premium using afp

they can access their shared folder, read the data but can not write...

with right mouse click on the folder shared rights i had given them all rights!

from security i also added them as users and in rights i gave all, also for all sub folders and so on...

still they are not able to write on sbs...can anybody tell where to do what!!

Thanks in advance...

You will most likely have to disable SMB signing on the server.  This can be a security risk, so it's important that you understand what that would entail for your specific situation.

You can read how to disable it here:  http://simultaneouspancakes.com/Lessons/archives/2004/12/how_to_disable.shtml


There are also a fair amount of good information on connecting Macs to an SBS here:

already disabled, otherwise users wont be able to log in!!

they can read the data but they cant write, they have given all the permissions...from folder sharing and security...to write, read and full access!!!!

I would still refer you to http://sbsurl.com/mac.  Please review all of the steps in the Appendix, "Share Files Using File Services for Macintosh" and make sure that you have completed all of the steps.  You must configure both the server AND the Mac correctly for this to work.

I'm a big fan of configuration checklists... for some reason they make it all work right.
