OSX to Samba Error, You don't have permision to rename PDF
Sunday, 12 February 2012
If you get the error:

  You don't have permision to rename

when you try to access a Samba resource on FreeBSD or Linux machine from OSX the problem is that you need to add the following line to your smb.conf file:

  unix extensions = no

If this does not solve the problem look for the name of your directory/file you want to rename. It might contain characters not supported by OSX to Samba conversion.

For example having a dir name with @ might give you that error. Like: @@@@this_is_the_folder_to_rename.

In that case the problem can be fixed by manually renaming the folder from your FreeBSD/Linux machine that hosts Samba and then do not use such characters anymore.
