Illustrator 16 and File Server

Nov 15, 2012 4:38 AM

Dear All,

 

All my files are on XServe 10.7.5, and I have 6 MacPro 2009 on a 1000BT network (2 GB on the server)

3 MacPros Under 10.6.8 and 3 MacPros under 10.7.5.

I have the following problem:

With CS6:

- on a MacPro 10.6.8, I work on a file, make changes and save it on the server-> OK

- just after, on a MacPro 10.7.5, I open the same file, I make changes, copy it and want to close without save the file. I press cmd+w and Illustrator closes the file without any windows, and it saves the changes! If I open again the same file, make the same things, when I press cmd+w, the right windows appears and asks me i f I want to save, discard or escape...

With CS5, no problem to work.

Any idea?

Thx

Stéphane

    Problem #1: Illustrator doesn't like to directly read from or write to remote volumes (see the technote and a myriad of other threads)

    Problem #2: Apple has totally wrecked "saving as" in Mac OS 10.7

     

    One fo the two or both should be the issue.

    I don't understand what is the problem to work on a file server if speed access are similar to a disk. The file is exactly the same, no ?

     

    the issue is explained here:

    Hello,

     

    It doesn't answer to my problem. So now, the problem is on all machine and local files -> the network is not in cause...

    And it auto saves when I cmd + w or when I clic on the red button, or when I clic in the menu file. It is the same...

    Any idea?

    Thx

    Dear Monika,

     

    It is very strange, but since the last update from Adobe, the problem has disapeared. We can work on the server without any problem. :-)

    Thx

    I wish you good luck, because I wouldn't do it myself. So many files got lost because of working directly on a server. You may argue if it should work, but at the moment it is just not safe to do so. It may stop working at any moment.

    Ok, I understand. But I work like that for about ten years, and I have never lost any file, except with the first version of Photoshop CS6.

    Thx
