• Mac users are having trouble creating, editing file names, moving files across the network. File server is Windows based. Issue is intermittent, not consistent. Users will receive dialogue box prompting for a username and password.

NOTE*** This was not an issue when files were stored on a Mac server, problems started happening when that server was removed from the network and files were transferred to a Windows box.

This only happens to Mac users, Windows users are perfectly fine. What am I missing here?
