SMB windows shares are grayed out when accessing them from Mac

Hi all,

When my Mac users try to access SMB shares from their Mac OSX machines, they see some of their files/ folders grayed out! this happens randomly and I doesn't show from the Windows side. Also happens to few of their new files they created.

This started happening after we migrated from DFSR 2003 server to 2008.

Any help will be appreciated,

in group policy on the windows server disable SMB signing and disable digitally sign traffic. Also check the users have the correct permissions for all of those shares

The issue was caused by wrong creation date. All grayed out files had a created date of 1946!

I found out that when files migrated from storage server 2k3 to 2k8 few files got corrupt creation date and that's what caused the issue.

The fix was recopying them to a different directory which updates the creation date.
