Can't save files to Helios EtherShare UB fileserver from applications

Hi there,

I am checking out SL on an iMac at my office. We're a printshop and keep our files on a Sun running Helios EtherShare UB (not UB+).

Since upgrading to SL I can browse and open files on the Sun, but if I want to save files from inside running applications I get an error message, stating there's a "Volume Error".

If I save the file to the desktop and then copy it to the Sun manually, things work out fine.

Since we also have a couple of PCShare-licenses, I've tried to connect to the volumes via SMB. That's unfortunately not working, either.

Any hints?

    Try repairing permissions.

    Quit any open applications/programs. Launch Disk Utility. (Applications/Utilities) Select MacintoshHD in the panel on the left, select the FirstAid tab. Click: Repair Disk Permissions. When it's finished from the Menu Bar, Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac. If you see a long list of "messages" in the permissions window, it's ok. That can be ignored. As long as you see, "Permissions Repair Complete" when it's finished... you're done. Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac.

    Could this be something as simple as the Sun hardware/software is not Snow Leopard compatible? Have you checked Sun's website for updated software or drivers or a statement of compatibility?
