MAC Volumes on NT4

By mark_lt ·
Is there a limit to the amount of data that can be stored in each Volume?

The reason I ask is that the mac serviced died today, and no matter what I did I couldnt get the volume available on the network, when I made a 3rd one and moved a few gb of data into that one, I had all 3 working?

whats going on ?

Depending on how large the volumes get it can take a long time 30-60 min. for 100gig for the volumes to publish to the macs. I'm not sure of the cause of your problem but I can recomend an alternative to using Services for Mac, Group logic makes software called Extreme ZIP which is used to create MAC volumes with 2 or 3 times the access speed of services for Mac and they publish in 1/10 the time. www.grouplogic.com

Apart from some other problems, half the trouble was as you say, it takes time to publish 32gb mac vol, thanks

The available limit for macs is dictated by the Mac OS you are running. Don't worry though if you share a 20GB volume with SFM the macs will see the volume but only show 2 or 4 GB of free space depending on the mac's OS, all of the space is available but when tring to move large files (more than the free space shown) errors can occurr.
As for your share not working check to make sure that the mac accesible share was not in the root directory. MS recomends the mac shares not be in the root and I've had some wierd problems before with mac shares at the root level.

I actually had the same problem on our system. Run scandisk on the mac vol. There is usually an error if you shutdown the server when the macs have not logged off. I beleive it the mac recycle bin file that contains the error.
