I have a problem with the SMB server in Lion. The configuration is as followes:


- Server: Lion Server (10.7.1) on Mac Mini

- Clients: Mixed, WinXP/Vista/7, 10.6/10.7




Vista client have a problem with the SMB shares on Lion.

When I add for example a new folder, in explorer the folder shows up as "ew Folder" instead of "New Folder".

When I try to change the name of the created folder, Windows report it can't find the folder. When I refresh the explorer, the foldername is correct.


It also occurs when creating new files, change files, etc.

It only happens on the Windows Vista client, on Windows XP/7 I have no problems with it.


I can reproduce the problem. On a clean install of 10.7 server and Win Vista the problems exists.
