Problems with smb connections between Mac OSX 10.3.9 (Panther) and Windows Server 2k3
Posted on 2008-06-11
I have 10 Mac users on system 10.3.9 with read/write permissions on Windows 2K3 shares. Inside the shares there are number of nested folders that have been causing problems with the Mac guys. These are:
1) can't save MS Excel files
2) 'file in use' error when trying to move files between folders
3) Previews of InDesign documents are not visible when browsing the folder
4) Can't rename files
The Mac guys are connecting via smb.
These problems first started on an older Win2000 server and we have recently upgraded to Win2003 on a new box. It seems like these problems have been inherited after the data was copied over. The Windows Administrator has told me that all the permissions are correct, and that he has re-applied them.
If anyone can shed any light on resolving this I'd be really grateful.
