Mac OSX Clients in AD server environment - anomalies

By eliot.hatton ·
Hello all,

Im going to post a basic rundown of our current environment that mainly consists of PCs, with a handfull of OSX Mac clients (lets say 60odd). Im hoping for some input from anyone else out there in the world that has seen similar problems occur in this environment.

File client / server permissions ? 10.3.x and 10.4.x clients are experiencing problems when renaming folders and deleting files etc on the AD file servers.

* Issue occurring on current w2k AD file servers

* Issue occurring in testing on w2k3 AD file servers

* Occurring for a variety of 10.3.x versions inclusive of the latest 10.3.9 revision

* Issue also found to occur with 10.4.x clients in testing

* Clients can save documents to the file servers

* Clients can create folders on the file servers

* Clients experience troubles when deleting files in some cases (generic permissions based error occurs). Not in all cases. Intermittent for some.

* Clients experience troubles when renaming folders with file contents (generic permissions based error occurs). Not in all cases. Intermittent for some.

* Documents accessed via an OSX client from a 2k file server are unable to be accessed by other users at the same time, even read access (in most cases).

Hopefully thats enough to get the ball rolling.. if at all :)

Cheers guys.
