As far as I know, you can't do what you want
No current version of Premiere works properly, if at all, over a network
-you may NOT "map" your My Documents folder to a network drive
-you MUST give all users administrator accounts to use Premiere

This is not satisfactory.
But it is the way things often work best. Use all local drives for editing, and the server only for backup.
Thanks Jim. Can you tell me CS6 Prem Pro work if I save Projects on the workstation or an external drive but source all the media from the enterprise drives on the server? Sorry to be a bother here but if you know what I am asking it may save me wading through a lot of forum threads.
I'll start reading. I'm hoping that we can store all of our media files on the server and save Premiere Pro Projects to the local workstation drives or external drives.
Thanks again for your reply and list of helpful threads.
As Jim said, keep your "master file" on the server and copy to a local drive for editing... then back to the server
You may want to have your IT person find "check out/in" software so 2 people don't try and edit the same file at the same time
Thanks John. I've realised how to manage the media and projects now. Thanks very much for your help (and Jim too)!
source all the media from the enterprise drives on the server?
Depends on the speed of your server and connection. Generally I recommend moving the media to a local drive before import.
