When a Macintosh user adds, deletes, or changes a comment on a file locatedon a computer running Windows NT Server 4.0 and running Services ForMacintosh, the date and time stamps on the file are changed as viewed byboth Macintosh and PC users. This is not correct behavior in a Macintoshenvironment. In this case, altering a comment does not constitute a changeto a file.
Services for Macintosh relies on NTFS, which is a different operation thanHFS uses by the Macintosh computer. Any change to a file will cause thedate and time stamps to be altered.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows NT 4.0 or Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in theMicrosoft Knowledge Base:
