Locked files on SMB shares (macOS)
There is a weird file-locking problem when files are opened and saved from/to smb volumes mounted on macOS. If files are saved and closed there is still a locking on the files. So colegues are not able to delete/replace this files. There is no problem if the afp-protocol is used. For this reason we had to disable smb-sharing on our server, because macOS uses smb as default if available. (Illustrator 21.1.0 - but at least from version 19 on)
Thank you for the information. i am moving this a feature request to support network drives.
This is an MAC OS problem not relatet to Adobe.
unix extensions = no
veto files = /._*/.DS_Store/
Note: For us it is necessary to save all files on a server, because our teams are working with them in collaboration (not simultaneously). Because of the open file locks on the illustrator files, another colleague is not allowed so save a file, if another one created it. So he has to "save as ..." and delete the old file and rename the new one. Not even for server-side versioning awful ...
This is happening on shared volumes by macOS-Server AND a Synology NAS, so I don't think that it's a problem on server side.
