    1. We have the Apple OSX server set up to administer DHCP. It seems to be giving the same device more than one IP when that device wakes on the network, even if we have a static IP setup for that device. We can call Apple support for this, but thought you may have a quick answer once you see how we’ve set it up.
    2. We copied a users native windows folders (including “My Music”) over to a network attached storage device. The user wanted to clean things up and delete the “My Music” folder off the network attached storage. When he tries to do so he gets a message that he has “Read Only” permissions for the folder and cannot delete it.
    3. One of the user’s computers has a jittery curser when working in documents accessed over the network. The problem only happens with network documents, local ones are fine. Only one user has reported this problem.

    Hello - welcome.

    The first thing that popped into my mind was that the device itself has a Static IP address, so irregardless of what the DHCP server tells it, it ignores. Could this be a possibility?

    Good place to start..

    Even if you do not have a static IP tied to it. There is still a new IP address being assigned after the device wakes. up.

    This is Windows PC's on the Apple server.

    Best to put in DHCP reservations. Could another router on the network be handing out IP's as well?

    Ahh routers excellent question. I am doing some trouble shooting for a friends business and I am inexperienced on the networking side of the business.

    Any idea why a folder is read only on a NAS device attached to the server?

    Possibly due to the settings for the share folders on the NAS. Look under "Share Access Restrictions" or equivalent in the NAS admin screens. Remember also that the settings might differ between AFP/SMB and NFS (if they are all in use).


    The NAS and/or the server and/or the accessing device needs to be rebooted.
