Issues with Mac accessing Windows share
Posted on 2013-10-15
We have a Server 2008 domain with mixed Lenovos and Mac clients.
A Mac user was trying to move a folder in the Public Share into another subfolder. Public share has Everyone - Full Control rights. He was prompted for username and password -which is odd since none of the folders have ACLs. Even entering correct credentials (domain user or domain admin) would not work.
From a Lenovo laptop, I tried renaming the top level folder and gott an error - "file in use." Looking into File and Storage Explorer on the NAS, I saw the an XLS file was open by another Windows user. After closing the file, I was able to rename the folder, and a the Mac user was able to move the folders.
1) is this expected behavior on the windows side?
2) why is the Mac user prompted with username and password, instead of file/folder in use?
