Hi,

I have come across a very strange issue, that I hope someone has seen before. I have found 1 report of this problem on Apple forum, but haven't been able to find a sollution.
(http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2169483)

A client of mine has an older xserve with Mac OS server 10.4 on it. All the clients are either 10.5 or 10.6. The server simply does filesharing (AFP).

When the clients look at their networks shares, the folders are doing very strange things. The folders opens and closes by themself, and their names changes from small to big letters and back again..


I haven't yet have a change to get hands-on with this issue, but I have never seen anything like it before. All other network services runs fine, except for the shared folders.


I anyone has come across something like this before, any advise would be appreciated.


Regards,

Kenneth

Instead of spending more time on this, we decided to move the data from the old xserve they use now, to a new Nas RAID.

It was about time to get that xserve out anyway.

Don't know if the problem was actually the disks, since we decided to just drop the server. But it would make sense.
