iMac Textedit no permission to save files on a server
Posted on 2011-02-13
This problem cropped up suddenly...as they do....when all was working fine. Office excel and word files can be read and written to a windows 2003 server fine. Textedit files could be last week, but this week the Mac advises the user has no permission to save, even though permissions say he does. Using a windows machine logging into same server with same credentials allows read and write to file OK.
Have deleted all the user and system plist files for textedit, have run disc permissions repair and rebooted. No change.
So created another account on same machine. Logged into same server with same credentials and open, changed and saved file no trouble. SO, something has got corrupted in the users setting/files/preferences somewhere, somehow.
What is repairable and how for this system admin user? Or do we have to make a new admin account and migrate all the startups, settings etc etc the long and tedious way?
