On the Macs make sure that in the network settings, you have specified the "Workgroup" under WINS.
Next, make the users on the NSS same as on the Macs that are accessing the shares; password and all. This holds true to the PCs as well. Remmember, when sharing files on PCs that are part of a workgroup, all computers need to have an user account for all users in the workgroup.
I hope that made sense.
So Mac user "SJobs" with PWD "loves apples"; will have an account on the NSS exactly like that. Each Mac user should be able to log into their Mac and NSS using the same user name and PWD. Obviously, this is not to imply a Single Sign-on.
PC users that will be accessing the NSS will also need to be configured in the same manner, so each user will have their credentials identical on the NSS and on their work station. This will create the "True" workgroup environment and should resolve your porblems.
I have created all new client and NSS accounts, all with aligned usernames and passwords, but the same thing happens.
My improvised solution was to login as Admin, grab all the files and folders, and reset the permissions to the values I needed. Then, have each user connect as Admin. Because of this I'm not using the NSS for anything important, just a dump for large media files. I've gone back to a Linux server with a RAID card.
I look forward to any further assistance from Cisco.
I've just discovered the problem is just with the OSX Users! (10.5 and 10.6). Windows 7 users has no problems to create folders and files with all the permissions to be modified by the Mac users... Now I'm trying to upgrade the firmware.
