Can't rename folders on shares from my Mac

Ok... I'm digging out an old thread, but I've never found an answer anywhere:
I'm sharing a folder on my NAS (latest DMS of course) with my Mac (Mojave) using SMB 3 setup like this:
138

139


All work well (can create/rename/delete files and can create/delete folders) but I cannot rename folders from my Mac (I get the admin box below - and even when I enter my a NAS admin username/password, it still doesn't work)

To rename the folder I have to do it on the NAS!

137


Any idea?

Just for a test, does this work via AFP protocol?

That Mac authorisation box is asking for a Mac admin, not NAS admin.

Does this happen for first-level folders within the share, or for sub-folders too?

I'm recalling similar things but can't remember if it was SMB/AFP/WebDAV, or some combination of all three. I'm sure it was to do with the permissions for the shared folder itself (i.e. it's Unix permissions for that folder [directory]) but once within a first-level folder then more folders and files could be accessed and changed as normal.

Is it an inheritance issue? Hmmm, can't remember.

That what I thought at the begining but even with MacOS admin login I get this error

At all levels

Maybe the problem is there, but it has to be a pretty common error, since this is happening on my three shares, encrypted and not encrypted.

That's a good question but the issue with using AFP is that (curiously) it was causing me issues with my Timemachine backups on my NAS (so I don't dare turning it on again), and also the fact that would lose this location in Finder

don't ask me why :oops:

So AFP is causing me more trouble than SMB.
Now I need to figure out why SMB is playing that renaming thingy on me :p

I understand was just wondering (considering you can use both) is the renaming issue present on both protocols.

I agree that curiousity is a good thing, but I'd prefer doing this test with a spare NAS, which I don't have. Based on https://www.reddit.com/r/synology/comments/6bja7i AFP is causing more issue that it's solving, so I'd prefer to try fixing the SMB approach (if it's really a SMB problem; as fredbert said, it might also be a permission issue)... I'll have dig into the permissions I think.
