Advanced Server and ACL Security?

» close window

The Question is:

I have set up a share with full access to all users.
when I view the contents DIR/SEC or DIR/ACL it shows 2 suppressed pathworks
The problem is when viewed from Windows (via Pathworks) I only see half of the
 file that are in there.
If I create a new file, then all files are visible briefly (a few seconds),
 before displaying the original half.
from DCL, all files are displayed correctly.
is there some sort of cache that is not being fully flushed/refreshed.
I did see a similar query many months ago, but cannot track it down.

The Answer is :

  You do not specify which version of Advanced Server is in use, but
  this report at least superficially resembles a known problem within
  certain recent versions, involving cache flushing and refreshing.
  Please upgrade to the most current version (or at least as far as
  Advanced Server V7.3A-ECO1 or later) to resolve this problem, if
  this is the known problem.
