Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 2005Q4 SP5 Release Notes


The following table lists the known issues in WebDAV.

Table 21 Known Issues in WebDAV

Problem ID 



Unable to rename or move a resource if the parent directory is locked exclusively. 

This occurs when DAV clients send the incorrect If : header. For example, if you connect to the Web Server using Macromedia Dreamweaver or DAV Explorer, create a collection, and then lock the collection with depth infinity (which locks all of its resources as well), you will not be able to rename or move a resource. Adobe® GoLive® sends the correct If : header only if the lock’s owner href matches auth_user. In all other cases with GoLive, the wrong header will also be sent.


Lock Management screen in the Virtual Server Manager does not display the lock information properly for hard links. 

Symbolic links (hard and soft) are not supported by the WebDAV implementation in Sun Java System Web Server.
