Environment

Client for Open Enterprise Server 2 SP4 (IR5)
Client for Open Enterprise Server 2 SP4 (IR6)

Situation

After upgrading from Client for Open Enterprise Server 2 SP4 (IR4) to Client for Open Enterprise Server 2 SP4 (IR5) or Client for Open Enterprise Server 2 SP4 (IR6), the error "The destination already has a file named "<file_name>"' is returned when a user without erase right attempts to copy a file to an NCP volume.

In some cases, such when an application (vs. an interactive user) is performing affected file operations, no error is displayed, and the application may simply not work as expected because of the underlying problem.

Resolution

Fixed in Client for Open Enterprise Server 2 SP4 (IR7).
