MacIntosh client on Win2000 server

By alanb ·
We have a problem with mac clients on a new Win2000 server that has been set up for their use.

Although sharing and inheritance has been set up, when a member of the CREATIVE group creates a subfolder (from a Mac client)the CREATIVE group do not have any permissions on that folder.

All other groups are inherited OK. This setup worked OK on NT4.

Has anyone heard of a similar problem? I just noticed that the CREATIVE group is a global group, although this has not caused problems in the past, nor with other global groups.

Any ideas?

We have tracked down the problem.

This only occurs when a folder is created from a MAC client.

For some reason the primary group of the creator does not inherit permissions as per the norm.

All other inherited groups behave as normal. We ended up setting the primary group for the affected group to Domain Users and this works fine.

HAs anyone else come across this? Is it a bug in Win2000?
