I have admin rights on the server, but when I retrieve a file to my Mac Air it comes as "read only".  "Getinfo" shows I have custom access.  I have re-propegated permissions and checked all of the permissions on the server.  What have I missed?

    The usual suspects here are differences in the object ownership, the group membership, or maybe an access control list entry.

     

    I almost never use the GUI for these cases.  The GUI is cute.  It's pretty.  But it's just not as compact, nor as concise 

     

    Launch Terminal.app and issue the commands:

     

    id

    ls -ale@ ~

    ls -ale@ ~/YourFilenameHere

     

    and post the results.

     

    This assumes the file is in your login directory.  ~ is command-line syntax for your login directory, and the YourFilenameHere in the ~/YourFilenameHere specification should be replaced with the name of your file.   The id command will show the details of your identity and your groups.

     

    Yeah, I know.  I'm referring to the command line as being less arcane and easier to use than the GUI.  Ah, well.
