Sun 7110 CIFS Permissions Problems
We're having some real problems accessing files over CIFS on our 7110.
We use it exclusively for CIFS use - no NFS.
It's joined to our AD 2003 domain and permissions are applied to domain users or domain groups.
We've had a few outages now where people would seemingly randomly lose access to files or folders they should have rights to.
There's always been another factor present - network glitches, routing problems etc that could have explained it - usually a reboot or a rejoin of the domain has fixed the problem - and the problem has always been confined to our shared area.
The problem has also been confined to MS Office (.xls or .doc) files.
Now the same problem has reared it's ugly head with our home share - one of our users can't access msoffice files in his homedir - all the permissions look fine when viewed through Windows explorer but when he tries to open anything in office he gets the message that the file is read-only.
I saw these threads: [Samba] No write permission if POSIX bits 0 on ZFS written by M$ Office - dos_mode returning r
[Samba] zfs acls and MS office applications
Which does seem to be what we are experiencing and am beginning to worry that we could have a serious problem on our hands.
Has anyone else encountered such problems?
