Reduce spinning beach ball delays on network drives
Authored by: belgarion26 on Mar 15, '07 10:45:43AM

Having 250 mixed windows and mac machines on the same network accessing the same drives, its not too bad, but the macs did drop off randomly. We use Extreme Z-IP on our Windows 2003 box, and the new version polls the mount keeping it alive on OS X, and will even reconnect it if it is dropped for whatever reasons. e.g pull the cable out, plug it in again and it stays connected/mounted. It is possible to fix this issue, it just takes a 3rd party to cash in on it..
