Vista CIFS Access - Access Denied

We are having a problem where Vista Enterprise 32 bit says Access Denied
when accessing a NetWare 6.5 SP6 NSS volume using CIFS. We see the Access
Denied error in the GUI when accessing folders where rights are inherited
and non-explicit. The login works fine. Access in a CMD window is normal
and is fully functional; only the GUI has the error.

We can also access folders normally using the GUI when access is explicit.
The problem only occurs when you access a folder with the GUI where your
rights are inhgerited.

Does anyone know if Novell has a patch for this?

Thanks,

I will call Novell. I believe there is a non-public patch for this.

Re: Vista CIFS Access - Access Denied

Hi,

I've wrote an eMail to Novell EMEA Customercare and next day to my
surprise I found a new patch appear on Novell Support Site ... 😮

.... and it works 🙂

So now it's an official Patch:

CIFS Update for NW6.5 SP6
(http://download.novell.com/SummaryFree.jsp?buildid=__wRf2APGHM~)

Kind Regards,

Thomas

Excellent -- thanks for the report back (and the link to the patch as
well).

Re: Vista CIFS Access - Access Denied

We are testing the CIFS patch called 65CIFS325b.zip but it is not working
- we still get access denied errors when accessing a share from Vista when
explicit root access is not defined. Has anyone seen this patch fix the
problem?

Thanks - Tony

Re: Vista CIFS Access - Access Denied

I'm not sure if this will fix your issue, but it worked wonders with mine,
(along with the post sp6 patch)

http://www.builderau.com.au/blogs/codemonkeybusiness/viewblogpost.htm?p=339270746

probably more of a work around than a fix. 😃
