[Samba] write problem from mac osx 10.8.5 clients to samba 4

Hi ryan
Thanks for your answer

I already tried the work around  "unix extensions" but this option seems to have disapeared in samba4 as i had provisioning samba with The --use-rfc2307 option. AS described in SAMBA 4 wiki.

Is it possible that the RFC2307 Unix attributs confuses The Mac OSX ?

Best regards, Athan

I'm not sure if this is still an issue in modern versions of OS X, but in past you have had to disable unix extensions on the server if UID/GIDs didn't match up with what the client had. It really sucks that there's not another workaround, especially for off-domain Macs. 

Personally, I've been running netatalk for OS X clients. While it sucks to have to maintain another service, the OS X SMB driver has always been pretty awful and the improvement in performance has been well worth the cost.
