Gentleones,

 

I'm running a Mac OS X Server 10.6.8 installation with multiple 10.9.1 clients. All clients are using iWork v. Latest and were all updated from 10.x and iWork '09. to get here.

 

When opening and then saving a Numbers (or Pages) document on the server, a folder with the same name as the original appears on the server. The contents look suspiciously like a bundle or package with the guts of the document in the folder.

 

The original document also gets modified when the document is saved.

 

Deleting the folder does not seem to affect the original document in any way.

 

It does this with alarming consistency.

 

Today, it exhibited a new behavior: a second document appeared with the same name. Though I wasn't able to see it on the server, several of the clients showed this second copy of the document. Others did not.

 

I have repaired permissions on the server and have ensured that all of the files and folders have "Read & Write" permissions for the root share point for "This folder, child folders, child files, all descendants". That I can tell, it's not a permission problem as each user can delete the mystery folder when it appears.

 

However, that said, I do have multiple users logging into the server using one username across several clients. That shouldn't cause a problem.

 

Users do not access the files in question at the same time.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

Bill
