Posting here as it's part of the transition. Day 2, really, of the transition. We have upgraded XMF on the new server, still running the Luxel via Firewire PCI.

New XMF Client on new iMac, new Black Magic Client on same.

Black Magic server has been upgraded, and moved to run on the Windows 2012 HP server. So quite the transition...

Downside, still running old Adobe on old iMacs, so doing work on the files there, then dropping them over to the new iMacs, until we're 'Adobe-upgraded'.

My problem is the leap from 10.6.8 t Sierra. HowTF do you see Volume icons when you connect to another Mac/PC. Nothing seems to appear on the Desktop, like in 10.6?

/System/Library/CoreServices/Applications/Directory\ Utility.app will tell you if you are bound to AD.

Also Users & Groups preferences under "Login Options" under "Network Account Server".

Pretty sure that's what we're doing. We all have unique connection usernames and passwords. I'll double-check, maybe my machine is reverting some how but I don't think there's any other way to connect since it's a brand new box.

Windows / Re: Windows Server 2016 Permissions Errors

Bind your Mac's to the active directory and sign into your mac's with domain user accounts.

You have a conflict of local Mac accounts, domain share permissions. Signing into the Mac as the domain user eliminates the problem.

Yeah where are you located?

Windows / Windows Server 2016 Permissions Errors
Last post by Slappy -
We recently had a new server installed for the Graphics/Prepress Dept, fast as balls & running Windows Server 2016. As I understand it, the IT Company cloned the old one (an older Windows Server box) then set up User Groups to maintain some leerl of access to certain areas. All was well the first few days, now it's devolved into a daily fight to read/write work on the new server. Of the many issues, these are the most common from the Mac stations:

- Opening InDesign docs results in them being Read Only, regardless of who initially created it and is opening it.
    - Re-saving that doc on the Desktop them overwriting to the server file doesn't work. We can rename the server file and even move it into a subfolder but deleting it gives a Permissions error, or "File sis in use by another Application, etc" message.

- Sometimes the InDesign doc opens fine, but once changed, can't re-save it to the server location. More permissions errors

- I've started seeing today, Illy files opened from the server location are leaving Temp Acrobat files behind, often several of them depending on how many times the Illy file was opened from that location

The IT guys have remoted in & made sure all the Users in the Group have the same Read/Write Permissions and they've apparently re-set the Permissions on the entire server Directory & sub-folders we access. Every day I've come in though, I get the exact same problems.

Macs in the dept running 10.12 and connecting via SMB, although they had me try a CIFS connection that didn't make a difference. I thought Windows Server was playing nicer with Mac file types & in general so not sure where the issue lies but has anybody else seen this level of stupid?

Good luck with that. I root for anyone trying to escape printing.
Does that include when I die?

I want to to try, too!
