When you copy a file to a Windows 2000-based computer from a Windows-based computer that negotiates file transfers with LANMAN 2.1, you may find that the Modified date attribute has an incorrect date and time of February 07, 2106 6:28:15 AM.


This behavior occurs because, when the copying process generates a GetExtendedAttributes SMB from a Windows-based computer that negotiates with LANMAN 2.1, the server sends back the wrong Modified date and time in response to the SMB_COM_QUERY_INFORMATION request.


To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows 2000. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
