Leopard / Mac not able to write to Windows 2008 share

I have a Windows 2008 server on AD.  The user in question has full control of the share and contents of it.

On the mac I connect to the share and authenticate with that user.  He is able to open the share and browse.  He gets a permission error when he trys to write.  the permissions ARE correct on the 2008 box.  ANY idea what the heck?

Thanks

and try to connect the shared folder with all lowercase

which i had the same problem with a non-domain machine tried to save the file on a shared folder on 2008 R2.

the funny thing is if the connection is made with CAP, i will have not able to write to it
and lowercase , no problem............

are you using SMB? and is the Mac in AD?

SMB, yes.

The Mac is not in AD, it authenticates when it mounts the drive.

Do this -
Give permissions (RW) for everyone on the 2008 machine. Eject and reconnect the share on the Mac.

Try if you are able to write from the Mac.
If this works, then the folder permissions on 2008 is not set correctly, which is usually the issue. This test will give some pointers.

Also, are you using the local account of the 2008 machine to log in from the Mac? Or is the share from 2008 over a windows domain?

You can try one more thing- write to the share from another Windows PC. If this works, then writing from the Mac also should work.

for testing the machine has been on full permissions everyone group and full permissions for the user.

I'm MCSE NT, MCSE 2000, MCSE 2003, MCTS 2008, been doing this a very long time, the ntfs permissions are set, AND when i log in as the user on a pc and try to write to the folder inside this share it works great..

my mind is blown..

sigh,, macs have been really pissing me off lately lol

Also, after giving permissions, you need to eject the volume and reconnect from the Mac.
