MacOs problem shared smb folder

Ask for the admin password on MacOs computers when they try to rename a folder that is networked and shared with several users.

Windows Server 2012 R2 server, contains the shared folder and wwo MacOs one with High Sierra and another with Sierra


With the computer "High sierra" I create folder 1, inside 2, and inside the two the 3.

With the computer "sierra" I try to rename folder 2 per folder 4 and automatically MacOs asks for the admin password

The permissions on the server windows 2012 r2 are correct.

Tnx All

BAD NEWS .. there are known issues with OSX Sierra/High Sierra and the SMB implementation and Windows 2012 and 2016 sharing.  Problems relate to file/folder ownerships and permissions are quite common and a quick Google will reveal LOTS AND LOTS of users reporting similar problems- there are even lots of questions here on EE about this

Clear Solutions are hard to identify and range from
1: Clear and reset all permissions on the Windows directories (not sure this will resolve anything but it can clear faulty permissions)
2: Try using the CIFS:// protocol instead of SMB:// from OSX to connect to Windows to force the use of an older SMB protocol which may be more compatible but that only works on older OSX versions so won't apply in your case
3: Make the OSX users connecting to the Windows servers have the domain_admin role (so in effect they are all powerful)
4: Forget about the OSX implementation of SMB and use a 3rd party solution like ExtremeZ-IP (now called Acronis Files Connect -
