Microsoft Word Permission error on network document share folder.

I have a server 2003 that has a iscsi to the ReadyNas 3200. And at random time of the day some of the user are getting permission error on documents that they have created and are typing in them or editing their own documents. Also, on other documents that someone else created.

It is a share that everyone has full access to.

    And the ReadyNAS is mapped to the server with all clients accessing the NAS through it?  Directly accessing an iSCSI device from multiple systems is a big nono.

    That is correct. Really? Why is that? I have been using that for about a year and everything has been ok.

    What would  you recommend of doing then?

    Should I just create a share on the readynas and point users there?

    Thank You

    Did you check the Logs and how to do you have the share access setup. CIFS is enabled by default and cannot be disabled.  On the share volumes did you check to make sure permissions are not getting changed.  Plus did you setup the Alert settings to email you in case something happens; In the event of a device or an enclosure failure, a quota violation, low-disk space warning, and other system events requiring your attention.  Finally you do not have any backup going on at this time?
