    Problem:
    Autocad files are not saving considtently from a client in a trusted domain.
    Background:
    There are 3 DFS servers (Windows 2003 R2) located in 3 different Cities in
    the same domain (TMC.Local, Windows 2000).
    For the last year all replication has worked just fine.
    On May 11th our organization consolidated to a new domain (Thermon.Local,
    Windows 2003). All users are now authenticating in the Thermon.Local Domain.
    We have setup two way trust between the two forests.
    The problem is when a Autocad file is changed, there is a delay and the file
    saves as a .tmp instead of .dwg.
    This problem is only happening in one site...the other 2 sites can save
    files fine.
    If someone has had this problem please inform me what the solution is.
    Thank you,
    JimL

  2. We're not autocad experts here, so I would recommend speaking to them first
    about their application and its behaviors. If the 3 folders are truly
    replicated, then it should not be permissions as all three should be totally
    in sync and should behave the same (good or bad).

    Do users have to go through a DFS namespace to have an issue - i.e. if they
    simply point their autocad app to \\server\share instead, does that work?

  3. Cross domain authentication should be 100% failure or sucess though, and I
    can't imagine how you could successfully have your security token allow you
    to create a temporary file on a folder but then be unable to rename the
    file.

    This is only happening 50% of the time though? As in, the same user from the
    same client to the same server might have it work every so often?

    that server?
