Yes, I'm using the RAID ok, it's my folders that occasionally have permissions set at no access.
Not sure why this is happening
I'm starting to think I'm having permission problems with my folders
I still have my old server hooked up, I'm dropping my files in both places right now.
no problems on the old server.

I have an old old old old old old old old Mac that I use for an old 11x17 Scanner only
I noticed I had tried hooking up to the RAID by AFP on it, mind you this thing is so old I had to go to Chooser :laugh:
So I think I will be losing this scanner soon
If you hadn't told me about the SMB/AFP thing I wouldn't of known that was a problem (thanks)

We are moving in June so I'm trying to get this all dialed in

Macintosh / This 10.5.5 Mac server is killing me
Last post by andyfest -
Still having the spinning beach ball of death occasionally as soon as I start typing in our username at the log-in window at I'm just about at wit's end. Server runs ok for a couple of weeks and then the SBBOD shows up at log-in. The issues started when we replaced the Apple RAID HDDs back in March 2016. I noticed also that there is two preference p.list files in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration - one is "preferences.plist.old" which looks like the server is using at startup and the other is just preferences.plist, which hasn't been used since Oct. 2016. I also get a shitload of "ACL found but not expected..." when I do a permissions repair, either using Onyx or Disk Ultility. I've attached 3 screenshots of the plist files in the Preferences folder. Anyone have any ideas what could be causing the SBBOD at log-in as soon as one starts typing?

After looking at your screen shot again it appears you probably already are the owner. If that is the case...have you created a user account on the RAID using the exact same name and password as what you are using on your Mac and then use those credentials to mount the RAID drive on your Mac.

Yeah I'm leaning toward that not being the problem
I am still researching.

I went back to your original post where you posted this:

Can you change the permissions on the file if you click the lock in the lower right hand corner? If it does you might want to try clicking the little gear icon and see if it will let you change owner status to you '(Me) in your screenshot'.

The conversions we do in Pitstop are usually just color to grayscale and truthfully none of the built in profiles do a good job at that. And having CM turned off doesn't do a great job converting images to gray either. Hence we get close with whatever profile looks best and then adjust it from there with curves or brightness/contrast with Pitstop.

I'm pretty sure that one could build the action list to turn CM off and convert everything that is not an image, then turn CM back on and convert only the images... However remapping is often the better approach if you don't wish to affect values.

The March 2015 webex workshop covered grayscale conversions/mapping in depth:

Yes I was at the webex. Just haven't gotten around to trying those things yet.

Are they just in font folders? Supposedly they do no harm unless they are corrupt. Sort of like politicians. Except politicians are all corrupt. :rotf:

Yes I get an error message
Yeah I am getting those quite a bit.

And I'm not sure if that's the problem yet.

So you mean if a folder contains an AdobeFnt.lst file you can't copy that folder to the raid? If that is the case and you try copying that folder does it just not start the copy or do you get an error that a file can't be copied? Are you getting a lot of those files in your job folders?
