    Not sure this applies, since it's affecting external servers, but have you tried repairing permissions after updating? And where have you found other examples? Links? :)

    Problems working with Mac OS X 10.3.x servers -- volumes read-only Several readers are noting an issue where, after updating to Mac OS X 10.4.6, volumes mounted remotely from Mac OS X 10.3.x servers are read-only.

    One reader writes:

    "There seem to be problems accessing an Mac OS X 10.3 Server after upgrading clients to 10.4.6. It is possible to log on to the server as usual, but almost every mounted server volume is read-only. This does not happen on a client running 10.4.5, using the same credentials."

    Another reader writes:

    "After doing the update to Mac OS X 10.4.6 via automatic software update, the folders/sharepoint on our Mac OS X 10.3.9 Server are locked. No changes possible anymore at the top level of the sharepoint. when we go down into folders inside these sharepoints, they are ok.

    "It appears the top level of the sharepoint is locked. This is confirmed when doing get info on a sharepoint, 'locked' is checked. All other access privileges are correct, according to them i should have read/write access.

    "This does not appear/happen when accessing the same sharepoints with 10.4.5 clients.

    "We have informed our users to not install 10.4.6 until further notice because of this."

    Finally, MacFixIt reader Thomas writes:

    "I installed the Mac OS X 10.4.6 combo updater for PowerPC. After the reboot, I had lost my permission to write on server-volumes. That is really bad."

    Well, because the servers might be remote, but the mount points are local, and need proper permissions (even though this wasn't the case here)... :)

    Thanks for the link, it's always nice to see what others have tried, and often solutions/workarounds will surface... like now:

    :)
