We use a samba 3.0.21b on Solaris 10 server.

Unfortunatly we have a problem with copy files from a windows 2008 r2 server volume to the samba share.

There is always the error message "The folder mac has properties that cant be copied to the new location".

What can be the problem?

thank you and kind regards

The problem sounds like the folder has attributes on it which are incompatible with the target file system.  Check to see if the folder has the hidden or system attribute on it, and if it does, remove it.  Hidden is easy, but the system attribute has to be done as the command prompt.

Something like "attrib -s -h mac" from the parent of the mac folder would do it.
