Trouble with CIFS and Access with Win XP

Currently Being Moderated

Hi guys,


i have mentioned a weird behaviour at a costumers cifs shares.

first of all some details about the infrastructure:


DataONTAP 8.1.1P1

SMB2.0 is Deactivated.


they have cifs shares like "pool1" which have folders like "folder1", "folder2" etc. for each of the folder within the CIFS Share they got a SecurityGroup in their AD to manage the access.




-------Data of Folder 1


-------Data of Folder 2

and so on....




Here's the Problem:

if an client with the os-type Windows XP connects the CIFS Share and have rights so read/write on both, folder1 & folder2 and he cut and paste some files from folder1 to folder2 the pasted files retain the old security and access settings of the origin Folder.



if i do the same with an Windows 7 Client the pasted (cut & paste!) files assume the inherited security settings of the folder. -> Everything fine!


Do one of you have this problems with XP Clients? If yes, how have you fixed this?
