DFS permissions out of sync

Hi all

I have two 2003  R2 servers set up to run DFS Both in the same site.

server A has a shared folder and server B has a shared folder. Both servers host the name space and everything works as it should but for one thing. On one of the servers all the files are read only even though all the permissions are the same on both of the shares. If share A is the active share its perfect, if server B is active then all users can see everything and all the permiisions set work except that no one can save work create new stuff just read.

Has anyone any ideas what could cause this and the best resolution please

Thanks

TD

How do you have the shares set up?  What are the share permissions vs the local ACL.  You will find the answer to your problem when you look in this area.
