We have a FAS3220 netapp Baie.
I created a Volume : a_datauser1
a_datauser1 online raid_dp, flex nosnap=on, no_atime_update=on, create_ucode=on,
64-bit convert_ucode=on, snaplock_enterprise,
On it i created qtree :
a_datauser1 data1 ntfs enabled normal
I share this QTREE :
everyone / Full Control
NTFS access right are full control for my windows user.
From a Windows workstation ( 2003 / seven / ... ), i connect to this share : \\sea4\datauser1
The problem is :
From windows explorer, if i create manually a folder on this network connection, I have this windows error message :
Error renaming File or folder.
Cannot rename new folder : Access it denied
Make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is not currently in use.
If I press ESC, a folder is created : New Folder
but I am not able to rename it.
So : I am unable to create a folder
From a command prompt / DOS, no problem :
I access to the network connection,
IT works !!!
If un CUT / PASTER a folder / sub directory from C: to this network connection,
it works !!!
So ? On a NAS Netapp, troubles with windows explorer ? Unable to create a basic FOLDER ?
Thanks for any ideas about this problem.

You can refer the below links,

I also am suffering from this behavior.
You may have already found this out (since it's now years later) but others may have this issue and the KB links provided are not helpful for this particular issue.
The issue here is that this is a SnapLock volume. Whether it's Enterprise or Compliance mode makes no difference. Paths/directories/folders in a SnapLock volume are immutable.
You are running into this issue because the default behavior of Windows Explorer when creating a new folder is to create a folder called "New folder" and immediatley prompt you to rename it, which you cannot do due to the path/directory/folder being immutable.
I am currently waiting for a response from NetApp to see whether there is a way to change this from the NetApp side as I don't believe it's a viable option to "train" users to create folders from PowerShell or a command prompt.
