Xsan was setup by the book, we have a secondary metadata server and network account server... all on lion (everyone attached to the same network account server properly... everyone can login properly)


We have two user groups: default "workgroup" for empleyees and "editors" for visiting editors. "Workgroup" can do everything, "edirors" can read only.


We have a constant "Fetching..." problem.... both for local and network users.


Xsan Admin almost all the time can read ACL's on xsan disks, but on occasion it just breaks and displays "AAAAAAA-EEEEEE" (something like that)


Removing broken names sometimes fixes a problem but not for long...


I tried "reset home directry permissions and acl" from recovery console on client computers (didn't help)... That thing works only on local accounts, we all use network accounts which are obviously not recognised properly


Any ideas?

xsan, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    When you see "Fetching..." in Finder's Get Info window, at the same time, does the ACL look correct if you do "ls -led /path/to/file_or_directory" in Terminal? How about in Xsan Admin's permissions editor? If it looks correct outside of Finder, does forcing Finder to relaunch fix the "Fetching..." status?

    The ls output shows you're unable to resolve ACL users or groups. Check out this article:
