Hi. Are there any know copy problems between 10.5.6 and 10.4.11?

I just upgraded my MacPro 10.5.6 yesterday and since then I can't copy files to my PowerMac G4 10.4.11 (2 x 500GB Disks as a RAID)
I can copy files ok between other 10.5.5 Macs

I can mount the 10.4.11 mac ok.
I can browse the files on the mac ok.
If I try and copy anything to it nothing seems to happen (unresponsive finder).
The Console - system.log is full of this message repeating every few seconds:

=========

Thanks for any help.

    I have the same issue on a 10.5.6 MacBook Pro and (3) 10.5.6 iMacs when copying files to a 10.4.9 AFP server. It seems I can copy files FROM the server just fine, and if I have a file that is very small (8 kb) those copy over fine but copying anything larger causes the Finder to hang. I also have the same error messages indicated. I tried a new user and applying the 10.5.6 Combo Updater all met with no success. The only fix for the iMacs was an Archive and Install, and going back.

    Helpful information. Thanks for the reply. Sounds like the exact same issue.
    Our 10.4.11 mac is only on for a few hours a day locked in our server room but I will check tomorrow to see if I can copy from the server and copy small files to it.

    Hi,

    I'm having the same issue at one of my corporate clients. 10.4.10 server and 10.5.6 clients, both G5 and Intel. Seemed to just start happening since the weekend (New Year's). I booted one of the G5s off my 10.5.6 partition on my utility drive and was able to replicate the problem as well, ruling out the standard user problems. Booting the same machine off the same drive from the 10.4.11 partition resolved the issue. Additionally, our 10.5.5 users have no problems in any save or copy scenario to the server.

    Maybe a Y2k9 bug? (ha ha)

    Hope someone addresses this soon! Until then I'll be downgrading my 10.5.6 users to 10.5.5. Ugh.

    I can confirm that I can copy small files only to the 10.4.11 mac.

    We're seeing the exact same problem

    SMB works fine, but AFP access from any workstation running OS X 10.5.6 has problems.

    The server is running 10.4.9.

    Basically, the AFP sharepoint keeps disconnecting, and if in the middle of a save or file copy operation, the file becomes corrupt on the server. Not good.

    I've reported this to AppleCare as a bug. Please call them and do the same, we need to get this fixed fast.
  • Richard Walker Level 1 Level 1 (40 points)
    Thanks for the info. Yes it does need fixing. I have submitted a bug report to Apple.
  • Richard Walker Level 1 Level 1 (40 points)
    Hi. Just to let you know that the issue has ben resolved. I got reply from the Apple Bug Report:

    "In the release notes for 10.5.6, you MUST have your 10.4.x systems upgraded to 10.4.11 or have connection problems due to an old bug in the AFP Server. Are you sure its 10.4.11 on that server?"

    Well I checked PowerMac and it was indeed only on 10.4.10 and not 10.4.11 as I stated in my earlier post. Sorry for the confusion. I hope this information helps others.

    I have marked Jason's post as solved as the answer was there "10.4.11 partition resolved the issue"

    WHAT!?!? Richard this doesn't solve the problem. "10.4.11" is far cry when we have no machines that will install tiger without cloning ....
  • Marco Breveglieri Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Hello, I have the same problem. A new MBPro and an iMac Intel at two different locations, both with a mac os x server 10.4.10, I can read from the server, but writing is not possible. When I downgrade the iMac to 10.5.2 or 10.5.5, I have full write access and it works fine. Now I will update both servers to 10.4.11 (when its possible for my customers) and then I will report back, how it works then. Thannk you very much, bye marco

    i have several 10.5.5 clients having problems, they can't copy from the server to local. or they try to save to the server and fail, lots of -36 finder errors, lots of you don't have sufficient permissions erros, and yet my 10.5.6 laptop reads and writes just fine from my 10.4.11 server, there are only 2 10.5.6 accessing the server and they have no problems, yet 10.5.5 problems. And they all started after a reboot, all workstations and the server were shut down for 20 hours while the building had a power outage. serveral users who have problems are far away in Europe, and some in the same building as the server.
  • Nessts Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    yesterday i did the following and thus far it appears to be better.
    I stopped AFP and SMB
    I applied all the missing updates security 2008-008 is the only one that I had hopes of helping.
    rebooted
    ran disk utility and did a verify disk on all volumes, 3 volumes needed fixing coincidentally 2 of the volumes that we were having sharing problems with needed fixed.
    I fixed the volumes and made sure all were mounted, restared SMB and AFP.

    so far no errors

    I have just encountered this problem for the first time @ a new client's office.
    *I upgrade the user's MB Pro to 10.5.6 (combo). Cannot copy ANY CS3 files UP To the server. I will not know for sure what OS the server is until Monday, They think it's 10.4.
    I got Adobe L2 support and we (of course) had to update the CS3. Adobe tech said that would fix it. NO go. Other files read & write to the server fine.... CS3 files get hung with -36 error with generic icon, about 8KB size.
    It would help if I know it's a server-side issue before I proceed monday a.m.

    thank you!
  • chotty1 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    i got to look at the server. it is 10.4.9.
    it needs 10.4.11 combo updater, firmware update and 2 LOM (?) updates.
    I hope updating the server will allow 10.5.6 client to copy files to the server "normally"...
