Newly created files on 2011 SBSE shares not visible
Posted on 2012-08-31
Thought I was out for a routine server deployment today, but Ive run into something strange. I used the connect site on all my clients to join them to the 2011 SBS Essentials server. I can see the server and the shares. If I create shares or folders on the server (as admin obviously) I can see them on the clients. If I open Explorer and browse to a share (say \\server\company) and then try to add a file (or right click and create New file or folder) it acts like its added, but I cant see it. Moreover, if I try to add it again I get an error. If I go look on the server I can see the file or folder that I just tried to create IS there (Its also there if I just go to another PC). It doesnt seem to matter what PC I try this on, or what user. The Share is set to Full Control for Everyone, and the Security permissions for the folders are set to give Domain Users modify rights. Originally the permissions were of course each individual user having full access. Altering this doesnt seem to affect the outcome one way or the other.
I tried creating a new share instead of the default shares that came with the server, but the outcome was the same.
Thoughts? Good google search phrases? Ive googled around, thinking Id find something surely, but got nothing. Perhaps my googlefu is weak.
