- MacOS SMB clients
- Sporadic / inconsistent permission denied
- When using MacOS Finder to browse a NetApp CIFS share, sporadic and temporary display of a red circle containing a white dash / minus symbol occurs on some displayed objects. If the object is a folder, and you attempt to open the folder, you may receive the following message:
"The folder <folder name> can’t be opened because you don’t have permission to see its contents."
- This is only a temporary failure. Refreshing or revisiting the folder commonly alleviates the symbol signifying limited permission and can allow traversal of the folder previously indicated as unopenable.
