When you use File Services for the Macintosh, Macintosh users may report
that files and/or directories that were previously visible are no longer
visible from Macintosh clients. When viewed on the server itself or by PC
clients, the files are viewable.
This issue was caused by the index not being updated with all of the change
notifications that were occurring as a result of the Macintosh clients
making changes to files. There was also a problem where, if the server was
restarted because of a Window NT blue screen, loss of power, or a hard
power-down without properly shutting down the server through the Windows
UI, the index would not be rebuilt correctly when the server was restarted.
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 the
