I have some Mac users with OSX 10.6.4 that are having issues viewing files in a shared folder on a Windows Small Business server 2008. I have change the permissions for all domain users to access this folder & to be able to read/write/modify. However the Mac users can connect to this folder but for some reason no files will show up in the folder, any suggestions for a fix? I have even created a new folder and copied the contents to it without success.
See if this post from an Apple forum helps you:
Note, although it mentions SBS 2003, there are responses from people saying this should work for SBS 2008. As always, please be sure to backup your server before making changes.

As the article said it should related to the settings for Mac system. If the article cannot help fix the issue, you can try to contact Apple for further information.

Are the mac systems using the SBS 2008 Active Directory? You can do this through system preferences -> Sharing.
