Cannot create or copy files to a Windows 2003 Server folder but can create folders
Posted on 2008-02-03
I connect from my home office from an Apple Leopard system to a Windows 2003 Server Standard Edition through a VPN connection. I am using the windows 2003 built in VPN function and have no problem accessing the server using my logon credentials as per my user in active directory. Once the session is established, in the Apple finder I click on "Go" and then on "Connect to Server...". Here I type in smb://IP Address of the Server/Network Data/ and click Connect. Now come up all of my files that I have created at the office using my PC. I can now copy any files from the Server that I am connected to remotely to my Apple Computer and I can also create folders on the Server while being connected to it remotely. Here comes the issue, I cannot copy files from my Apple computer to the Server. I get an error message that states "The operation cannot be completed because you do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items". A file on the Server is created with 0KB. If I try to create a folder through it works without errors. If I now try to copy files into this folder I also get the previous error message. I've tried creating a new share and given it full access rights using the everyone group but still I am unable to copy files from my Apple machine using Leopard to the Server. What am I missing?
