I am setting up a two-server farm, and most everything works, except the checkout action for a document. This problem occurs in both site collections, one of which requires checkout, and the other does not.
Here are the options I've tried:
Snow Leopard, Firefox 3.0.1 - works Snow Leopard, Safari - works Win 2003, IE 7 - works XP, Firefox - works XP, IE 8 - "This document could not be checked out. You may not have permission to check out the document or it is already checked out or locked for editing by another user."
In IE8, I am able to open a document as read only then use the button presented by Word to check out the document. I cannot use that as a workaround, as not all users have a version of Office that will allow checkout in that way.
Checkin works fine. I need to resolve the checkout error.
