I just started a new job, and it's a small enough company I'm expected to be part IT man.

My boss put a bug in my ear about a problem, which is when you go to save a file and get told you don't have authorization to do it (even though you do), or go to delete a file and get told it can't be done. I'm talking beyond 'read only,' that you just can't modify the file because your computer thinks someone else has it open on the network, or thinks you don't have permissions to do it.

I had this happen all the time in my last job, and it was easy to blame our incompetent IT manager. But that was on a mainly PC network, and this is an all Mac network, and the same shit happens.

What causes this? What books are good for boning up on the networking/IT side with Macs?
