Trouble with CIFS and Access with Win XP

Hi guys,

 

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

first of all some details about the infrastructure:

FAS3270MC

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.

 

/pool1/

-----Folder1

-------Data of Folder 1

-----Folder2

-------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?

 

Regards

Edmund
