When you set advanced permissions to a shared directory on a server running Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, Macintosh clients lose write access to the directory.


This behavior occurs because the advanced permissions on a directory in Windows 2000 do not have a one-to-one correspondence with the Services for Macintosh (SFM) shared directories, and SFM cannot implement security permissions as detailed as those implemented on a Windows 2000 directory. By design, when advanced write permissions are not granted, SFM restricts all writing to the directory.


This behavior is by design.


Steps to Reproduce Problem

On a Windows 2000 Server-based computer:

  1. Create two Macintosh accessible volumes, setting Everyone - Change Permissions on one and Everyone - Special Permissions on the other, leaving Write Attributes and Write Extended Attributes unselected.
  2. From a Macintosh client running Macintosh OS 8.1, mount both shares.
  3. Attempt to copy any file from the Macintosh client to both shares.
  4. When you attempt to copy a file to the share with Special access, you receive the following error message:

    You cannot copy FILENAME onto the shared disk SHARENAME because you do not have the privilege to make changes.
