Currently Being ModeratedMar 31, 2010 12:19 PM (in response to cesare.dieni)Same issue here.
After installing 10.6.3 copying files to a samba share on a Linux box is extremely unreliable. Sometimes it works, most of the times it fails with the message that "The operation can't be completed because you don't have permission to access some of the items."
Everything was fine before the 'upgrade'. Any help would be appreciated.Mac Mini/MBP 2.8Ghz (late 2008)/Intel iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 31, 2010 5:54 PM (in response to VCO1)Yes indeed. I did some more testing. It is totally random.
The strange thing is that it seems to be happening only with files copied from a MacOS X filesystem to a Samba share. For example from a samba share to another samba share works fine.
Also some files always work and some other never work....
It beats me how Apple could have not tested this properly considering Samba shares are the most commonly used either on Windows or Linus servers....iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 1, 2010 6:52 AM (in response to cesare.dieni)I have a very similar problem. Before the update everything copied to the smb server fine, now nothing I try to copy works. I get the same error you are talking about. My administrator checked, and nothing has changed in the share settings. I had problems related to viewing the contents of server folders last year, but that seems to have been solved by a system update late last year.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 1, 2010 7:53 AM (in response to Daviel Bosjidar)I think Apple has made changes in the way the operating system uses file handles between filesystems and did not properly test with file systems other than MacOS X and NFS file systems. I have no problem copying files back and forth if I mount the same share as NFS rater than Samba.
I find extremely surprising that this was so grossly overlooked...iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 1, 2010 9:24 AM (in response to cesare.dieni)This is serious. Luckily I have only updated one of our machines to 10.6.3; since we transfer gigabytes of data every day from OSX to a Linux Samba share this would have really screwed up our production otherwise.
This needs to be fixed, and quickly.
Currently Being ModeratedApr 1, 2010 10:38 AM (in response to cesare.dieni)Hey guys, there is another thread on this here; http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2382501&start=0&tstart=0
It's pretty clear by now that files with extended attributes in the HFS file system cant be transfered to some samba servers, with the finder as of 10.6.3. There is no solution to this problem as of yet though, other than manually stripping the files of extended attributes before trying to copy them with the finder.
Currently Being ModeratedApr 2, 2010 4:09 AM (in response to slbkxbx)Hello I copied (using terminal) the file from a OSX disk to a samba share and despite the error (could not copy extended attributes to disk .... operation not permitted) the file was copied.
Is it possible to disable extended attributes into the finder ??Macbook, Mac OS X (10.6), Macbook, Powerbook, MAcplus, MacMini

Currently Being ModeratedApr 4, 2010 1:51 AM (in response to SunSparc)Hi,
I have noticed the error occurs when I copy files from my Mac to any samba server (I run OpenSuSE on a Phenom-X4 and Ubuntu PPC on an old iBook-G3). However when I copy to a file share on a PC running Windows Server 2003 I do not get any file copy problems.
Reading and executing files from mounted samba shares or windows shares did not seem to have any issues.
For the moment I have relegated myself to copying files to a Windows OS running on a virtual machine in my Phenom-X4 and then logging into the VM and copying the files a second time to the samba share but I would appreciate anyone posting further on this issue. Because of my experiences I believe the issue is an incompatibility with the Samba servers after upgrading to 10.6.3.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 5, 2010 2:26 AM (in response to cesare.dieni)Turning off Unix extensions in my Samba server solved the problem for me. More details here: http://splatdot.com/fixing-snow-leopard-10-6-3-samba-write-access/Macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 5, 2010 12:39 PM (in response to Dean Franklin)It is not only to Samba Servers - also copy to Firewire attached HD Devices (LaCie 1T) will not work any longer.
But my TM Backup to a QNAP still works - without changing anything ... (maybe as attached to my Mac via ASP and SAMBA)Mac Book Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 7, 2010 11:59 AM (in response to Dean Franklin)That "unix extensions = no" fix worked for me. Thank you for that!MacBook Pro 15", Mac OS X (10.6.3)
