IOS 13.5 Files App can connect to NSS volume but can not write to the NSS volume

Native Files app on IOS 13.5 can connect to an OES2018sp1 server's NSS volume and I can browse the folder structure.  I am unable to copy a file from the IOS device to the NSS volume, it throws a "Bad Descriptor" error message on IOS.  However, I can share the file on IOS to the FILR app on IOS and save it to "My Files" which is my home directory.  We would like to be able to save directly from IOS to the connected server's NSS volume.  A bit more background.  Running a VPN client on the IOS device that connects to the office network to be able to access the OES server.

Would it be an eDirectory user logging in to OES SMB share via Files app on iOS?

 

However, Please note that this is not a supported mode. Can you please post it under OES Ideas? We will review and consider for a future release.

Thanks.

Yes, when you connect to the volume it prompts for credentials and you use the eDirectory credentials that have the necessary  rights.

I just tested it with IOS 13.3.1 on a NSS CIFS share - that combination seems to work without problems.

I just tried again….

 

Connect to VPN.  Can authenticate to network share (nss volume with CIFS enabled).

Browse down to where I want and I can open a word doc and edit it.  Auto-save is enabled on Word on the iPad and changes show up when I look at the document from a work station on the network.

 

Open Word app on iPad.

Create a new document and select save.

I can select the network share and drill down to where I want the file.

I give the document a name and then you have to hit the “move” button, I guess to move the file to the network share.

That is where it fails.

 

iOS is now on 13.5.1

Does it work, if you create the file with "pages" on IOS ? MS Office for IOS has it's problems and maybe is the culprit in this scenario. Does that, what you try to do, work on a Windows server share?
