networks, a single client can coping data files using the Apple Finder application. The
process is summarized as follows.
To copy data files between Avid shared storage networks:
1. Update your Avid Unity MediaNetwork Macintosh client with v5.3.2 client software.
Check that you have your Fibre Channel connection to the Avid Unity MediaNetwork.
2. Connect your Ethernet cable to the build-in Ethernet port on your Macintosh client.
3. Load the Avid ISIS 5000 v3.1 client software.

for this release is only available on the Avid Download Center. Avid Unity MediaNetwork
v5.1.4 client software is supported in v5.1.3, v4.2.4, and v4.1.6 infrastructures.
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1.3 client software prevented the Final Cut Pro application
from rendering effects when Avid implemented the fix for the slow response between the
Finder and the Final Cut Pro application. The Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1.4 client
software fixes this issue so that Final Cut Pro clients can render effects and function
normally when switching between the Finder and back to the Final Cut Pro application.
n
Unless you are using Final Cut Pro clients on your Avid Unity MediaNetwork, there is no
reason to upgrade your Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1.4 client software.

Fixed in Version 5.1.3
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1.3 includes the following client fixes:
12
➤
Virtual File Manager was renaming the Computer Name by appending an FC to the end of
the Computer Name. The Virtual File Manager now stays with the name assigned by the
administrator.
➤
When in an Avid Unity MediaNetwork v4.x environment with a failover File Manager, some
operations performed with v5.1.2 of the Macintosh client software would take much longer
than with previous versions of the client software. This problem has been fixed in v5.1.3.
➤
The client installer for clients running the Windows 64-bit Storage Server 2003 operating
system was missing some files. The Windows 64-bit Storage Server 2003 installer now
includes all the required files.
➤
The Final Cut Pro application had been slow when switching between the Finder and back to
the Final Cut Pro application. The delay depended on size of project; the larger the project,
the longer the delay. Avid has made changes in the Avid Unity client software that address
unused calls made by the Final Cut Pro application, and the connection with Avid Unity.
New in Version 5.1.2
New in Version 5.1.2
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1.2 is a Windows client and Macintosh client software
release, and does not include server software. You do not need to update the server and
network infrastructure. These client software updates are only available on the Avid

This Windows client release is required if adding a server with a Windows Server 2003
64-bit operating system to your v5.1.1, v4.2.4, or v4.1.6 infrastructure. This release also
improves delays on Windows Vista clients when opening files over the shared storage
network. There is no reason to upgrade your Windows XP v5.1.1 clients to v 5.1.2.
•
Macintosh client software — includes the fixes listed in “Fixed in Version 5.1.2” on
page 15.
Final Cut Pro Software Approved
Avid has tested Final Cut Pro as a client in the Avid Unity MediaNetwork shared storage
environment. Initial testing was done with Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1.2 client software
in the v5.1.1 server infrastructure with Final Cut Pro v6.0.4. (Final Cut Pro is not supported
in the Avid Unity MediaNetwork v4.2.4 and v4.1.6 server infrastructures.) There is no Avid
restriction on the QuickTime version. Use the QuickTime version recommenced in the Final
Cut Pro application. QuickTime v7.6 was the version used in the Avid testing. For

Avid Interplay Access supports the Mac OSX platform, and through this application Final
Cut Pro QuickTime files and projects can be checked into Interplay. Any Interplay
workstation can search for these files and edit their Interplay metadata, though there is
currently no tightly integrated workflow between Avid editors and Final Cut Pro within
Interplay.
The following list characterizes the setup guidelines for your Final Cut Pro client with Avid
Unity MediaNetwork:
•
c
n
-
Platforms — Mac Pro (early 2008) “Harpertown” Dual Quad-Core 3.0 or 3.2 GHz.
-
Operating system — Mac OS 10.5.4 and later.
-
Avid Unity MediaNetwork — Fibre Channel connection using the ATTO Celerity
FC-41ES adapter board (Avid has not tested Final Cut Pro as an Ethernet client on
Avid Unity MediaNetwork and is not supported at this time).
•
Final Cut Pro editing software was characterized with the AJA KONA™3 hardware. The
complete Apple Studio 2 bundle was installed.
•
Verification tests on Apple Color and Sound Track Pro were run to verify Push - Pull
capabilities.
•
Final Cut Pro media should be in its own Allocation Group. Including:
-
Scratch disks
-
Project files
Do not mix Final Cut Pro clients and Avid editor clients within the same Allocation
Group.
•
Final Cut Pro editing systems require 30% to 50% more bandwidth than Avid Media
Composer at similar resolutions.
•
The number of Final Cut Pro clients supported in an Allocation Group are about 1/2 the
number of Avid Media Composer clients at similar resolutions.
Make sure the workspaces you are using is part of the Allocation Group you created for
Final Cut Pro clients. When Final Cut Pro clients are sharing the same Allocation Group as
Avid editing clients, the Final Cut Pro clients have poor performance.

You need to stay in line with the general client parameters specified for all Avid Unity
MediaNetwork Macintosh clients. The following are the specific hardware details used
in the Avid testing:
Digidesign Pro Tools software was not tested with Final Cut Pro clients.
New in Version 5.1.1
Fixed in Version 5.1.2
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1.2 includes the following Macintosh client fixes:
➤
Macintosh fiber clients occasional disconnected and would reconnect 30 seconds later. This
disconnect issue has been resolved in v5.1.2.
➤
When JKL scrubbing or fast scrubbing on the timeline with Macintosh Ethernet clients, the
client would get a very slow response causing the Macintosh “beach ball” to display and
eventually an “Exception: AECIFS_ERROR.” The JKL scrubbing and fast scrubbing on the
timeline no longer cause the slow response, the Macintosh “beach ball,” or “Exception:
AECIFS_ERROR.”
➤
Some files that were tagged for deletion on Macintosh clients were being left behind in the
folder (for example ~avid_removed~xxx). All files that are tagged for deletion are now gone
from the folder after the delete function has completed.
➤
When using Final Cut Pro® there was a problem where the link to media for partially
rendered effects was lost. This is fixed in the v5.1.2 of the Macintosh client software.
➤
Windows Vista clients no longer have delays when opening files over the shared storage
network.
New in Version 5.1.1
The following sections describe the changes and new features in Avid Unity
MediaNetwork v5.1.1. This release is a full server and client software update. The
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1.1 client software is also supported in the v4.2.4 and v4.1.6
infrastructures.
Preferred Drive Letter Mapping
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1.1 has a new Connection Manager feature for Windows
clients called Preferred Drive Letter Mapping. Preferred Drive Letter Mapping allows you to
specify the drive letter for a mounted workspace. This feature is not available in the Avid
Unity MediaNetwork user interface. After you install the Client Manager software on your
client you must edit a text file that is created and saved in the local settings of the Windows
client system.
The Preferred Drive Letter Mapping file does not affect the decision of what workspace to
mount. When you mount a workspace the software checks the Preferred Drive Letter
Mapping file to see if there is a preferred drive letter. If you have edited the Preferred Drive
15
Letter Mapping file, workspaces with a Preferred Drive Letter Mappings are processed
before those that don’t have preferred drive letters. Workspaces with no Preferred Drive
Letter assignment use other available drive letters.
If a Preferred Drive Letter is already mapped to another drive (for example, a USB drive),
the workspace uses a different available drive letter.
To use the feature:
1. Log out the Connection Manager.
2. Open your Notepad application and create a new file (File > New).
3. Enter the <device name> and <workspace name> as shown in the following example:
F: \\path\workspace1
Q: \\path\workspace2
n
The <device name> can be “F” or “F:” or “F:\” and the workspace name cannot contain
spaces.
4. Save the text file as “AvidPDL.txt” on the client system in the following location
depending on your operating system:
Windows XP
C:\Documents and Settings\user_name\Local Settings\Application Data
Windows Vista
C:\Users\user_name\AppData\Local
5. Start the Connection Manager and select the workspace. The file is read every time you
mount a workspace.
Fixed in Version 5.1.1
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1.1 includes the following fixes:
16
➤
Macintosh clients were randomly experience kernel panics during some audio functions
between the client and the workspace, these audio functions no longer trigger a kernel panic.
➤
When Macintosh Ethernet clients saved bins that had 110 characters or more in the path
name, the file name, or combination of the path and file names; the media engine would
occasionally stop functioning (to a Windows blue screen). The code causing this behavior
has been corrected.
New in Version 5.1
➤
While in the shared project if there were 16 or more bins open, a bin folder would sometime
become invisible to the project and Apple Finder. Bins no longer disappear from your
project when more that 15 bins are open.
➤
Some workspace data was left in the operating system of Macintosh clients when
workspaces were unmounted. All folder information is now complete removed from the
client when workspaces are unmounted.
➤
When a workspace is named the same as an external drive and both are mounted on a
Macintosh client, data from external drive was hidden. Now both the external drive and
workspace can be viewed at the same time.
➤
When Interplay Instinct sent a playlist to a playback device, the player would remain in a
Loading state. Now when Interplay Instinct sends a playlist to the playback device, the
playback device plays out the list successfully.
New in Version 5.1
The following sections describe the changes and new features in Avid Unity
MediaNetwork v5.1. This release adds Macintosh Leopard and Windows Vista clients to the
Avid Unity MediaNetwork environment.
Client Support with Various MediaNetwork Environments
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1 client software can now be used in earlier MediaNetwork
environments. If you have a MediaNetwork v4.1.6 or v4.2.4 infrastructure running the
appropriate MediaNetwork server software, you can now run MediaNetwork v5.1 client
software on your Windows XP and Macintosh (10.4.11) clients. Windows Vista and
Macintosh Leopard (10.5.3 and later) clients with MediaNetwork v5.1 client software can
also be used in MediaNetwork v4.1.6 or v4.2.4 environments.
Support for 1 TB Drives
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v 5.1 now supports 1 terabyte (TB) drives in the media engine
and MEDIArray drive enclosures. To support 1 TB drives you need to increase the memory
(RAM) in the media engine from 2 GB to 4 GB. New media engines shipped with Avid
Unity MediaNetwork v5.1 and later comes with 4 GB of RAM.
Support for Eight Drive Enclosures
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.0.x supports five drive enclosures (the media engine and four
MEDIArray XT drive enclosures). Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1 and later supports eight
enclosures (the media engine and seven drive enclosures). Additional drive enclosures can
be a combination of MEDIArray XT and MEDIArray LP enclosures. To support six or more
17
drive enclosures you need to increase the RAM in the media engine from 2 GB to 4 GB.
New media engines shipped with Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1 and later come with 4 GB
of RAM.
When adding MEDIArray drive enclosures, you must connect them directly to a
MEDIASwitch. Remember to change the switch configuration if necessary. For information
on connecting the MEDIArray drive enclosures, see the Avid Unity Media Engine and Avid
MEDIArray XT Setup Guide. The setup guide does not list the MEDIArray LP but the
process is the same. For a change when using two MEDIASwitch. see “Connecting Multiple
Avid MEDIArray Enclosures to Two MEDIASwitches” on page 18.
To use a MEDIArray LP in your Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.x environment:
c
•
The MEDIArray LP shipped with an ATTO CTFC-41XS adapter board installed in
PCI-X slot 3, that is the supported configuration when connecting the MEDIArray LP in
the MediaNetwork v5.x environment. The optional second Fiber Channel board in
PCI-X slot 2 is not supported.
If you have the optional second Fibre Channel board installed, you can either remove it
or leave it installed, but do not use it for any fiber connection.
•
Install the Avid MEDIArray software on the MEDIArray LP using the Avid Unity
MediaNetwork v5.1.x DVD-ROM.
If you are moving a MEDIArray LP enclosure from an existing Avid Unity
MediaNetwork system to a v5.x, you must uninstall the existing MediaNetwork
software (IBOD) and install the v5.x MediaNetwork software from the installer DVD.
Failure to do so can result in total data loss.
•
Load the ATTO Fibre Channel driver qualified for Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1.x.
Connecting Multiple Avid MEDIArray Enclosures to Two MEDIASwitches
This section replaces the “Connecting Multiple Avid MEDIArray Enclosures to Two
MEDIASwitches” section in the Avid Unity Media Engine and Avid MEDIArray XT Setup
Guide. Now that Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1 supports up to seven Avid MEDIArray
drive enclosures (any combination of Avid MEDIArray XTs and Avid MEDIArray LPs), the
following configuration is required when you have two MEDIAswitches and up to seven
optional storage enclosures.
The first Avid MEDIArray enclosure connects to Port 15 of the MEDIASwitch 2. The
second Avid MEDIArray enclosure connects to Port 15 of the MEDIASwitch 1. The third
storage enclosure use port 14 on the MEDIASwitch 2 and fourth storage enclosure uses port
14 on the MEDIASwitch 1. As you add more Avid MEDIArray enclosures continue
alternating the enclosures between the Avid MEDIASwitches as shown in the figure.

New in Version 5.0.2
Qlogic Fibre Channel Connection to the Client
If you are connecting a Fiber Channel client using an Celerity adapter board to a Avid Unity
MediaNetwork infrastructure running Avid Unity MediaNetwork v4.1.6, v4.2.4, or v5.1.x on
a 4 Gb Qlogic switch, you should set the board to PTP preferred mode. This setting is
common on sites that already have configured clients. For instruction on setting the mode,
see “LANshare Fibre Channel Connection to the Client” on page 23.
Fixed in Version 5.1
➤
You no longer need to “Disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP” in the NetBIOS setting panel to fix a
long delay before your workspace appears after you restarted a client and map a workspace
for the first time.
➤
The unexplained “Mac-36” error that you might have experienced when dragging files to the
workspaces no longer appears. You now get an “out of disk space” message when the
workspace is running low on free space.
Even if you see that the workspace has enough space available for the files you intend on
copying, you must allow additional space for overhead requirements. The Avid Unity
MediaNetwork software uses 256 MB of temporary transient space per file copied, for a
significant number of seconds before releasing the space and returning it to actual free space
for the file manager. Avid recommends you have a minimum of 50 GB of space when
copying files. In some cases, even more might be required.
New in Version 5.0.2
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.0.2 is for Macintosh clients only and requires an Avid Unity
MediaNetwork v5.0.1 or later infrastructure. This release does not include server software.
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.0.2 includes the following fix:
➤
There was a condition when attempting to create or save MXF media to a workspace that
caused a Macintosh kernel panic error in Macintosh clients. A fix was implemented to
prevent the kernel panic
New in Version 5.0.1
Changes were made in the Avid Unity MediaNetwork software protocol that prevents earlier
versions of Avid Unity MediaNetwork clients from connecting to the server. Only
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.0.1 and later clients are supported on Avid Unity
MediaNetwork v5.0.1.
25
n
If you have Avid Unity MediaNetwork clients using software version v5.0 or earlier, you
need to update the client software before those clients can connect to Avid Unity
MediaNetwork v5.0.1.
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.0.1 includes the following fixes:
➤
Previously, Macintosh clients that were editing and saving sequences to a shared bin would
stop responding. This issue has been corrected.
➤
Macintosh clients no longer stop responding when attempting to unmount workspaces using
the Avid Unity MediaNetwork Fiber Manager or Apple Finder.
➤
Your Macintosh editing application no longer stops responding when exporting an AAF
(format) clip at 1:1 (resolution) from an Avid Unity MediaNetwork workspace.
➤
The Windows 2003 server operating system running on the Avid Interplay Engine no longer
stops responding when stopping and restarting File Manager. For example if you needed to
stop the File Manager for maintenance, it no longer affects the Avid Interplay Engine
operating system.
➤
Updates were made in Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.0.1 to allow Final Cut Pro v6.0 and
v5.1.x project files to be saved to Avid Unity workspaces. Previously, an error message
would display when attempting to save Final Cut Pro project files to Avid Unity
MediaNetwork v5.0.
➤
Previously the first Ethernet client to mount a workspace caused other clients to receive
“Access Denied” error messages when trying to write to that workspace. This condition only
happened when “Enable dynamic mounting of MediaNetwork workspaces” was selected.
(This setting is in the Avid Media Engine.) Now multiple users can write to the same
workspace without receiving Access Denied messages regardless if using dynamic or static
mounting.
New in Version 5.0
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.0 introduced new server and storage hardware that provides
higher performance while reducing the system components needed in previous
MediaNetwork releases. The following highlights the component changes:
•
26
Avid Unity Media Engine is the Ethernet server, designed to use the built-in Ethernet
ports. One Ethernet client can connect directly into the Avid Unity Media Engine or the

Avid ships the media engine with the scsiport driver. The scsiport driver is also loaded if you
reimage the media engine. You only would need to change the setting if you ran the ATTO
v2.61 utility on the media engine.
The ATTO v2.61 driver utility automatically selects the scsiport or storport driver for your
client. If you install the ATTO v2.61 driver on the Windows 2003 operating system, the
utility installs the storport driver. This is the correct driver for a Windows 2003 client, but
not the driver that is qualified on the media engine. The following procedure describes how
to reinstall the scsiport driver on the media engine.
33
To check or change the storport driver to the scsiport driver on the Avid Unity Media
Engine:
1. Navigate to C:\windows\system32\drivers\ on the media engine.
2. Right-click the ClrtyFC.sys driver and select Properties.
3. Click the Version tab.
Under the Description, it should say “Celerity HBA Windows x86 scsiport driver.”
4. If the description says storport then rename the ClrtyFC.sys file to ClrtyFC.storport.
5. Copy the scsiport version of ClrtyFC.sys file from the Avid Unity MediaNetwork DVD
to the C:\windows\system32\drivers folder. The location of the scsiport ClrtyFC.sys file
on the DVD is:
[DVD drive]:\Drivers_Firmware\HostBusAdapters\ATTO\Drivers\Windows\
Celerity\2.61\32bit\
6. Restart the media engine.
Windows XP Firewall
If you install Windows XP SP2 on an Avid Unity client system, make sure to do the following:
1. Start the Security Center application from Start > All Programs > Accessories > System
Tools > Security Center.
2. Click Windows Firewall.
3. In the General tab, make sure Firewall is turned ON.
4. In the Exceptions tab, make sure the Avid Unity Connection Manager is listed in the
exceptions list and has a check mark next to it.
5. In the Exceptions tab, make sure the Avid Unity Connection Manager is listed in the
exceptions list and has a check mark next to it.
6. In the Advanced tab, navigate to the ICMP area and click the Settings button.
7. Make sure “Allow incoming echo requests” has a check mark next to it.
8. In the main Security Center window, click Automatic Update. Make sure the “Turn off
Automatic Windows Updates” is selected.

Memory Configuration
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v 5.1 now ships with two 2-GB modules installed for a total of
4 GB of memory in the media engine.
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v 5.0.x shipped with two 1-GB modules (2-GB) in the media
engine. This configuration is still supported in Avid Unity MediaNetwork v 5.1 as long as
you do not install 1 TB drives in the media engine and MEDIArray drive enclosures, or do
not have more than four attached MEDIArray drive enclosures.
To support more than four attached MEDIArray drive enclosures or 1 TB drives, you need to
increase the memory in the media engine from 2-GB to 4 GB of memory. Media engine
memory upgrade kits are available from Avid. For more information, see your Avid
representative.
36
Avid Unity Media Engine
Supported Drives for MediaNetwork
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1.x supports 250 GB, 500 GB, and 1 TB drives in the chassis.
Avid Unity MediaNetwork drives with less storage capacity are not supported in the media
engine and MEDIArray drive enclosures. As drive size and drive speed improve, newer
drives are qualified for use. Contact your Avid representative for more product information.
n
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v 5.1 now supports 1 terabyte (TB) drives in the media engine and
MEDIArray drive enclosures. To support 1 TB drives you need to increase the memory
(RAM) in the media engine from 2 GB to 4 GB. New media engines shipped with Avid Unity
MediaNetwork v5.1 and later comes with 4 GB of RAM.
MediaNetwork System Configurations
Avid provides information about MediaNetwork configurations that are qualified with each
MediaNetwork release. This information shows the number of active MediaNetwork clients
that various MediaNetwork workgroups can support. For configuration information, see
Avid Unity MediaNetwork Configuration Guidelines.
n
The configuration information is a guideline for MediaNetwork workgroups to use but does
not provide for all the variations of MediaNetwork workgroups. The number of MEDIArray
drives in the data drive set, the use of real-time effects, and digitizing or recording to a
protected or unprotected workspace while other users are working are factors that affect
MediaNetwork workgroup performance. Also, you might find that MediaNetwork workgroup
performance decreases as the individual clients’ loads increase.
Port Blocking
Some users need to block ports on the Avid Unity Media Engine to protect their systems.
The following information provides you with the default Ports used by Avid on the media
engine. Other ports are not used by Avid and can be blocked without causing problems with
their system.
Defaults Ports Used:
•
5000 - Fail Over File Manager. This is read in from the registry. If the default port has
been changed using the Setup Manager, the media engine will use a new port.
•
6010 - Avid Unity Media Engine workgroup configuration
•
6012 - Avid Unity Media Engine load balancing for workgroups. Not likely used, but
not blocked.
•
6014 - License server
37
The following ports allow CIFs authentication on a Avid Unity Media Engine:
•
137, 138, 139, and 445
•
53 - Depending upon your setup you might need to open port number 53 to allow
Domain Name Services to connect on a Avid Unity Media Engine.
Avid MEDIArray Drive Enclosures
The Avid MEDIArray drive enclosures are PC-compatible systems that run the Windows XP
Professional operating system. The Avid MEDIArray drive enclosure must be dedicated to
service only the workgroup. Install only the Avid MEDIArray workgroup software and other
Avid-authorized software on the Avid MEDIArray drive enclosure.
Memory Configuration
The Avid MEDIArray drive enclosures ship with two 512 MB modules installed for a total
of 1 GB of memory.
Daisy Chaining
The Avid Unity Media Engine or Avid MEDIArray drive enclosures do not support daisy
chaining.
Installing MediaNetwork Software
The following sections describe how to install your MediaNetwork software. Avid ships all
new media engines and Avid MEDIArray drive enclosures with the appropriate operating
system, drivers, and hotfixes already installed.
n
Check the Avid Knowledge Base for the Security Guidelines and Best Practices document for
information on updates for all hotfixes and patches.
When you have completed the installation of the Avid Unity Media Engine software,
continue with the installation of the client software. Read the “Client Software Installation”
on page 40 and then use the Avid Unity MediaNetwork Client Guide for more information.
38
Installing MediaNetwork Software
Software Upgrades
When upgrading your Avid Unity MediaNetwork software on your Avid Unity Media
Engine, use the new installer DVD to upgrade to the new software. When you run the
software installer from the DVD, you are guided through the upgrade process which will
first remove the older version, then install new version.
Avid Unity Media Engine and TransferManager
There is an intermittent interaction problem between the MediaNetwork software on the
Avid Unity Media Engine and the TransferManager. If you stop the MediaNetwork software
while the TransferManager has workspaces mounted for transferring media, both the Avid
Unity Media Engine and the TransferManager must be rebooted. After both systems are
rebooted, the TransferManager shows all of the Avid Unity Media Engine drives mounted as
local drives in the My Computer window. Because the TransferManager does not know
about these drives, double-clicking a drive displays a message asking if you want to format
the drive. If you see this message, click No.
To unmount each of the Avid Unity Media Engine drives from the TransferManager:
1. Right-click the My Computer icon on the desktop, and select Manage. The Computer
Management window opens.
2. In the left pane of the Computer Management window, click Disk Management. The
right pane shows a list of available drives.
3. Right-click a drive other than C or D (these are the system software drive and the Avid
software drive), and select Change Drive Letter and Path. The Change Drive Letter and
Path for X appears, where X is the drive letter.
4. Select the drive in the dialog box and click Remove.
5. Click Close. The drive no longer appears in the right pane of the Computer Management
window.
6. Repeat steps 1 to 5 for each of the Avid Unity Media Engine drives.
7. Reboot the TransferManager.
Time Synchronization
Avid recommends that you run only one time synchronization utility on your workgroup
clients. You should use only one of the following recommendations when setting up time
synchronization:
t
Synchronize the Avid Unity Media Engine to a synchronization source and then
synchronize all workgroup clients to the media engine.
39
t
Synchronize the Avid Unity Media Engine and all the clients to the same
synchronization source.
For a MediaNetwork client to synchronize its time with the Avid Unity Media Engine, the
client needs to maintain a connection to the Avid Unity Media Engine. The connections are
created as follows:
•
Windows Fibre Channel clients automatically create a connection to the Avid Unity
Media Engine when the client boots. No workspaces need to be mounted.
•
Macintosh Fibre Channel clients, or Windows and Macintosh Ethernet clients must
mount a workspace to create a connection to the Avid Unity Media Engine.
Client Software Installation
As you install the MediaNetwork software on your clients you need to be aware of some
general information that is not in the manuals. The following sections explain that
information.
n
The Avid Unity MediaNetwork server and client software have separate installer DVDs.This
reduces the number of splash screen selection previously documented in the Avid Unity
MediaNetwork Client Guide.
To install the client software:
1. Load the Client Installation DVD into the client workstation DVD drive.
Wait for the auto-play to display the splash screen.
2. Click Install Products.
3. Click the appropriate installer for your client and follow the prompts:
t
Fibre Attach Client
t
Ethernet Attach Client
User Permissions
The following is a summary of the permission needed when installing and using the
Avid Unity client software on Windows and Macintosh workstations:
40
•
Macintosh client — The Administrator name and password are required to install the
Macintosh client software. All users have full client functionality.
•
Windows XP client — A user account with Administrator privileges are required to
install the client software. A user may be either a Power user or a Restricted User for full
client functionality.
Client Software Installation
•
Windows Vista and Windows 7 clients — The Administrator name and password are
required to install the client software. A user may be either a Standard user or an
Administrator user for full client functionality.
Installing Windows Clients
Windows Autologin
Avid recommends that you turn off the Windows Autologin feature that takes you directly to
a desktop when you boot the system rather than displaying a login window. Autologin
prevents some necessary Avid files from initializing properly and this prevents the
Connection Manager from mounting workspaces on the desktop. For information about
turning off Autologin, see your Windows documentation or Help.
Installing Mac OS X Clients
The following sections apply to Mac OS X client installations.
Mac OS X Autologin
Avid recommends that you turn off the Mac OS X Autologin feature that takes you directly
to the desktop when you boot the system rather than displaying a login window. Autologin
prevents some necessary Avid files from initializing properly and this could prevent the
Connection Manager from mounting workspaces. For information about turning off
Autologin, see your Apple documentation or Help.
Fibre Channel and Ethernet Client Software
Avid does not support running both the Fibre Channel client software and the Ethernet client
software on the same Mac OS X client.
Connection Manager
The Connection Manager can display up to 400 workspaces in the Connections Manager
window.
DNS Server
Mac OS X Ethernet clients need to connect to a network that has a domain name services
(DNS) server so that they can properly identify servers and clients that are part of the
network. If you do not plan on connecting the MediaNetwork workgroup to a network that
contains a DNS server, Avid recommends that you install and configure a DNS server on
your media engine. To install and configure the DNS server, see the Appendix in the Avid
Unity Media Engine and Avid MEDIArray XT Setup Guide.
41
Automatic Software Updates
Avid recommends that you do not automatically update any of the Apple software on your
Mac OS X client. Automatic Apple software updates can lead to unpredictable Avid
software behaviors.
To turn off automatic software updates:
1. Select the Apple P menu > System Preferences. The System Preferences window
opens.
2. Click Software Update. The Software Update window opens.
3. Click the Update Software tab. The available update options appear.
4. Deselect the “Check for updates” radio button.
5. Close the Software Update window to save the change.
Background Tasks
Mac OS X runs several background tasks daily, weekly, and monthly. The tasks clean up
system databases and run between 3:15 A.M. and 5:30 A.M. If these background tasks are
missed for a period of time, they can take several minutes to complete, they run at a higher
system priority from Avid applications and utilities, and will affect the performance of all
running applications while they are in progress.
If you normally use your system during the time when the background tasks are running,
consider changing the time when these tasks run. A utility, CronniX, allows you to easily
change the time when the background tasks run. It is available from the following Web site:
http://www.koch-schmidt.de/cronnix/
Macintosh Hidden Files
When a Mac OS X client writes files to workspaces, it actually write two files: a visible file
and a hidden file (the resource fork). Visible files usually contain only an icon from the
creator application and the name of the file. The hidden files appear as an icon followed by a
period (.), an underscore (_), or the file name on Windows clients.
n
42
The Mac OS X version of Avid Composer Products software does not create hidden files.
When you encounter a hidden file, you should do the following:
•
Leave the hidden files as they are. Do not delete or remove these files from the
MediaNetwork workspace.
•
Open files by clicking the visible file name or the visible file icon.
Information About Avid Unity Media Engine
Information About Avid Unity Media Engine
The following sections provide information that you should know regarding all Avid Unity
MediaNetwork workgroups.
Fibre Channel Adapter Boards
Avid Unity Media Engine systems support one ATTO CTFC-41XS (PCI-X) adapter board
for connecting a Fibre Channel switch, which in turn connects clients and additional storage.
Disk Software
When you use your Avid Unity Media Engine you might run in to the following scenarios,
they appear as problems, but they are not.
•
When you open the Setup Manager you might observe disks that are labeled something
other than Avid.
•
While creating a new Data Drive set it is possible to receive a dialog box that reads:
Some of the selected drives may not have the correct firmware
Click OK and ignore the dialog box.
Neither of these situations effect system performance and should not be cause for concern.
The software that determines the drive type and firmware is being changed to reflect to the
proper drives.
Hot Swapping Avid Unity Media Engine System Drives
The Avid Unity Media Engine does not support hot swapping the drives in the drive set. You
should not remove a drive from a Avid Unity Media Engine while it is running.
Avid Unity Media Engine Directory and File Limits
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.x supports 10,000 directories and up to 500,000 files. You can
increase the number of directories on the file system to more than 10,000. Doing so,
however, decreases the total number of files you can store, by 32,000, each time you cross a
10,000-directory boundary. MediaNetwork warns you if you exceed either the directory or
the file limits. The following table shows the dynamic relationship between the number of
directories you have and the number of files you can store on a Avid Unity Media Engine
with 2-GB of memory.

Virus Protection
If you are connected to the internet, Avid recommends you manually select your Windows
updates and install them during a scheduled maintenance intervals. Some updates require
that you restart your system. In addition, antivirus programs that contain autoscanning
features (for example File System Auto-protect or scanning files on network drives) are not
supported.
Access the Knowledge Base at www.avid.com/securityupdate and review the Microsoft
Security Bulletin Addendum document. This link also includes antivirus software support on
Avid products which can be found in the Avid Security Guidelines and Best Practices
document.
c
Virus protection software and Windows updates will result in workflow interruptions,
and should be performed during a scheduled maintenance interval.

and drivers. It does not restore the MediaNetwork software. The MediaNetwork software
must be reinstalled separately, after the operating system recovery is complete.
52
Using Backup Software
When recovering the Windows operating system, you need to run the Windows Setup utility
to set the operating system parameters. You need to have the Windows license number to
type in as part of the configuration. Depending on the Windows operating system you are
using, Avid provides the Window operating system license number on a sticker on the side
of the chassis. This sticker is shipped in the box and must be attached to the side of the
enclosure when setting the media engine or MEDIArray XT.
c
If reimaging the MEDIArray LP, you must use the Product Recovers DVD from the
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v4.2.x release.
For an updated procedure on how to use Avid Product Recovery DVDs and perform the
Windows Activation process, search for the “Product Recovery DVD and Windows
Activation Process” posted on Avid Knowledge Base. Go to www.avid.com/US/support.
Using Backup Software
There are several non-Avid applications available for backing up your Avid Unity system:
•
Legato NetWorker®
•
ARCserve®
•
Dantz Retrospect®
You’ll need the following hardware to perform these backups:
•
A separate server to run the server portion of the backup software, if required. This
server cannot be the media engine.
•
A tape drive, attached to the backup server, that is supported by the backup software.
•
A client attached to the workgroup that can mount all of the MediaNetwork workspaces.
This can be either a Windows or a Macintosh client, as supported by the backup
software, that is already a workgroup client.
For additional information on using these backup applications to back up your
MediaNetwork workgroup, see the backup application notes included with your
MediaNetwork documentation or contact Avid Customer Support.
Documentation Change
The following are updates to the Avid Unity MediaNetwork Administration Guide.
53
Recovering and Replacing Drives
The Avid Unity MediaNetwork Administration Guide describes how to replace a drive in
Appendix A under a heading “Recovering and Replacing.” You now must restart your Avid
Unity MediaNetwork before you can designate a replacement drive as a spare. The process
has been updated since the guide was published, the updated procedure is as follows:
n
c
This procedure assumes you had a drive designated as a spare before the failure.
If you do not have a spare drive designated and experience a drive failure, this
procedure does not apply and you are at risk of data loss if a drive fails.
To perform a drive recovery:
1. Select Start > All Programs > Avid Unity > Setup Manager.
The Setup Manager window opens.
2. If the Data Drive Set group is not already selected in the Available Drive Groups list,
click its entry to display all the attached active and spare data drives.
3. Ensure that there is a spare, same-size data drive to replace the failed data drive.
4. Ctrl+click the drive to be replaced and the spare drive to select them.
5. Select Recover > Recover Failed Data Drive.
The Recover Confirmation dialog box opens.
6. Click Yes to recover the selected drive.
A dialog box opens, asking you to choose to leave clients connected or disconnect them.
7. Do one of the following:
t
Click Yes to start the online drive replacement.
t
Click No if you want to disconnect all clients and perform an offline replacement.
A progress indicator appears, showing that the Setup Manager is performing an
online drive recovery. Writing to disks is blocked for a brief period at the end of
online recovery.
When the data drive set has been recovered from an online repair, the progress
indicator closes. A dialog box informs you that the previously spare drive appears in
the Data Drive Set group marked as active, and the previously active drive that was
replaced appears as a Replaced Drive.
When the repair has completed, you need to determine which physical drive is bad
within the drive enclosure.
8. Highlight the drive that was replaced (bad), and select Drive > Identify.
The selected drive in the drive enclosure to blink for 15 seconds.
54
Documentation Change
n
Any of the other drives can blink while transferring metadata. If possible, you should watch
when you select Identify to determine the actual drive that needs repair. Be sure to note
which drive is identified to make sure you know which drive should be replaced. (For
example, you could be to place a small piece of tape on the front of the drive.)
9. Select the replaced (bad) drive, right-click the drive and select ‘Take drive offline from
controller.”
10. Manually remove the problem drive from the drive enclosure, replace it with a new disk
drive.
The newly installed drive spins up but cannot be accessed until the Media Engine is
restarted. If the replacement drive was in the MEDIArray drive enclosure, it also must
be restarted.
c
If you had a drive designated as a spare before the failure, you can continue to work
without interruption, Although if you have a second failure without a designated spare
drive. you could experience data loss.
11. When time permits, shut down the system in the following order:
a.
Clients
b.
Media Engine
c.
MEDIArray drive enclosure
12. Start the components in the following order:
n
a.
MEDIArray drive enclosure
b.
Media Engine
c.
Client
Once the components are restarted, the new disk drive is now a raw drive. You must continue
with the procedure and use the Setup Manager software to make it a spare drive.
13. If the Setup Manager is not already running, select Start > All Programs > Avid Unity >
Setup Manager.
The Setup Manager opens.
14. Select Raw Drives in the Available Drive Groups list.
The raw drives discovered by the Setup Manager are displayed in the right panel of the
window.
15. Select the raw drive in the Drives list.
16. Select Drive > Make Drive Spare.
55
The drive becomes a spare data drive and is moved from the Raw Drives group into the
Data Drive Set group.
17. Close the Setup Manager.
The File Manager now sees the drive as a spare.
Take Drive Offline from Controller Option
The “take drive offline from controller” option in Setup Manager applies to fiber attached
MEDIArray storage enclosures only. Although not dimmed in the menu, you cannot “take
drive offline from controller” on any of the storage drives located in the media engine
enclosure. You must power down the media engine to remove drives from the media engine.
Once the media engine has restarted, the new disk drive is now a raw drive. Use the Setup
Manager software to make it a spare drive.
Improved Behavior During Online Drive Repair
The existing Avid Unity MediaNetwork Administration Guide states the following when
performing an online drive recovery:
“Clients that are not already connected to the MediaNetwork workgroup (by having a
workspace mounted or by running the Administration Tool) are prevented from connecting
to the workgroup until the recovery is complete. If a connected client logs off or crashes
during disk repair, they will not be able to reconnect.”
The new behavior:
Clients are able to unmount and remount workspaces as many times as needed during online
drive repair, but can expect degraded performance till repair completes.
56
Limitations
Limitations
The following items describe limitations with the current release of the MediaNetwork
software. When a workaround exists, it appears in the paragraph directly following the
limitation description.
➤
n
If you use the Avid Performance Meter (IOTester.exe) to perform a read-only test, and you
stop the test before it completes, the tool might stop functioning unexpectedly. This can
occur if you try to stop the test while it is creating a temp file.
Stopping the Performance Meter during a write-only test does not result in the same
problem.
Workaround: Monitor the progress of the test in the Results graph and, if necessary, stop
the test when the tool is recording reads and not writing a temp file.
➤
If you use the ATTO Configuration tool to upgrade the firmware on the ATTO Fibre Channel
host adapter board, the Connection Mode setting reverts to the default setting of AL
(Arbitrated Loop), and the Interrupt Coalesce setting reverts to the default setting of Low.
You must restart your system after a firmware update is applied. After the restart has
occurred, you must reconfigure your board as appropriate for your operating environment.
To reconfigure your board, see “ATTO Configuration Mode Settings” on page 22 and you
must restart your system a second time after the configuration is completed to apply the
values.
➤
If you have a data file that is larger than the free space, you receive a “Some files were not
optimized” error.
Workaround: When you optimize, you make a copy of a file on a nearly full workspace or
drive, move it to an emptier workspace or drive, then delete the original. You must maintain
sufficient free space on your workspace or drive to make a copy of your largest file, or
optimization will fail. Be aware that the size of files when using MXF, starting in v3.5.3, is
vastly larger than what is possible with OMF files.
➤
All versions of the Mac OS operating system are not case sensitive. You cannot have two
files with the same name, but different letter case, in the same folder (such as, video1 and
Video1).
The MediaNetwork file system is case sensitive. You can have two files with the same name
and different letter case in the same folder. This might cause problems for MediaNetwork
workgroups that have a mix of Windows and Macintosh clients.
57
Known Issues
The following sections describe known issues with the Avid Unity Media Engine hardware
and software. When a workaround exists, it appears in the paragraph directly following the
issue description.
MediaNetwork
➤
When you Log off of the Avid Unity Media Engine from the console or from a remote
desktop session while other Ethernet attached clients are performing I/O operations, the
editing applications pauses for a few moments. This behavior is experienced on all releases
of Avid Unity MediaNetwork. This is a limitation with the Windows operating system.
Workaround: The I/O operation continues after retrying the operation. It is not necessary to
restart the Avid Unity Media Engine.
➤
Windows Vista Ethernet clients might experience slow performance when you drag and drop
files into workspaces. This is caused by the Windows TCP autotuning in the Avid Unity
Media Engine.
Workaround: Apply the Windows Server 2003 hotfix Article ID number 947773 to your
Avid Unity Media Engine. For more information, view the article in the Microsoft
Knowledge Base.
As an alturnitive to the Windows Server 2003 hotfix, you can also open a comand prompt on
the Window Vista client and type the following:
netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
➤
If your Windows XP client repeatedly logs the following events in its system event log,
perform the DataCacheSize DWORD Workaround.The event source is “avidcomm.”
Requested read operation failed with status =
STATUS_INSUFFICIENT_RESOURCES
or
Requested write operation failed with status =
STATUS_INSUFFICIENT_RESOURCES
Workaround: Create or change the DataCacheSize DWORD value in the registry.
To create or change the DataCacheSize DWORD value:
1. Click the Start button and select Run.
The Run window opens.
58
Known Issues
2. Type regedit.
The Regedit window opens.
3. Navigate to:

value to 8.
4. Click Edit > New and select DWORD Value.
5. Type the name of the DWORD Value as “DataCacheSize.”
6. Double-click the DataCacheSize values name.
The Edit DWORD Value dialog box opens.
7. Type the Value data as “8” and select Decimal.
8. Click Ok.
9. Close the Registry Editor window (File > Exit).
10. Restart the Windows XP client.
➤
For media engines and for Avid Fibre-attached clients, Windows XP might display the
following error message after you repeatedly restart the system: “Windows — Low On
Registry Space.” This occurs when the Windows system hive file increases in size because of
the large number of drives in the MediaNetwork system for which Windows XP maintains
registry records. This can degrade the performance of the media engines and of
Fibre-attached clients.
Workaround: Run the Scrubber.exe utility located in the \Extras\Scrubber folder on the
Avid Unity MediaNetwork DVD to remove old entries and compresses the system hive file.
For information on how to run the Scrubber utility, see the documentation provided in the
Scrubber folder on the DVD (Microsoft_Scrubber_util.doc).
➤
If there are a large number of files (typically greater than 100) opened by Windows Vista
Ethernet attached clients, the Media Engine could start to run out of non-paged resources.
This would be seen as “insufficient resources” or similar events in the system event log of
the Media Engine.
➤
If you cancel the software uninstall process on the MediaNetwork or any Windows client
before the software is removed, when the client reboots, an error message opens stating that
it cannot find the setup.exe file. This prevents the new client software from being installed.
Workaround: Restart the software uninstall process and complete uninstalling the software.
59
➤
If you select No to the License Agreement during the Avid Unity MediaNetwork software
installation and then select No when asked if you want to quit the setup, an error message
appears stating “InstallShield can not call DLL function: GetDlgItem.”
You must accept the License Agreement to install the software.
Workaround: Click OK to clear the error message; you are brought back to the License
Agreement. To exit the setup, click No to accepting the License Agreement, then Yes to “are
you sure you want to quit the setup.”
➤
The Monitor Tool does not report any Ethernet clients in the Active Clients tab. The tab
currently only reports Fibre Channel clients.
Workaround: To see information about the Ethernet clients, use the Status Viewer.
Administration Tool
➤
The Administration tool might display a size for a drive that differs from the size displayed
for the same drive in the Setup Manager or in the Avid Unity MediaNetwork Monitor tool.
The drive size listed in the Setup Manager and in the Monitor tool represents the actual size
of the drive. The drive size listed in the Administration tool represents the size of the drive
with the metadata area (104 MB) taken into account.
➤
A Drive Repair will not start if the Administration tool is open on the media engine. The
repair seems to start, but in the Server Log viewer it will just wait and make no progress.
Workaround: Close the Administration Tool, then navigate into a workspace through
Network Neighborhood. Once that was done the data copy started.
Windows Clients
➤
After you mount workspaces, re-opened the connection manager to deselect some
workspaces then select others, one of the following can take place:
-
The correct number of drive letters are displayed, but one or more of the drives
show the wrong workspace name (it is really the newly mounted workspace).
-
The deselected workspace disappears but the newly selected workspace does not.
Workaround: Do not dismount and mount from the Connection manager in the same
“manage connections” session; For example, unmount the drives, click apply, then re-open
manage connections to mount the new one.
60
Known Issues
➤
If you delete a workspace from the media engine while a client has the workspace mounted,
the workspace appears to still be mounted on the client if viewed using Windows Explorer.
Workaround: To check mounted workspaces on a client, start the Connection Manager.
This updates the mounted workspaces. Any workspaces that were deleted no longer appear
in Windows Explorer.
➤
If the media engine is rebooted without properly stopping clients, the Windows clients do
not reconnect.
Workaround: To see the media engine, right click My Computer, select Manage and rescan
System Devices.
➤
If two files containing different data, with the names of the files having different cases (for
example NAME.txt and name.txt), opening either file only shows the data from the file with
the lower case name (name.txt).
➤
When a client is moved from one switch to another and the client is rebooted, you might
intermittently see the “Found New Hardware Wizard” appears looking for AVIDCOMM
FAKE COMM DISK.
Workaround: You can choose to reinstall the driver which is already on the client, or
dismiss it. If you dismiss it you might receive the message each time you boot the system.
➤
When you log out of a Windows XP client using the Windows Switch User feature, the
workspaces mounted by the previous user remain mounted when your desktop opens.
Workaround: Use the Windows standard log out process and then log in when the
Windows log in prompt opens.
Mac OS X Clients
➤
Avid editing Macintosh clients cannot capture 8-bit 1:1 HD media to a mirrored Avid Unity
MediaNetwork workspace; 10-bit HD media works fine.
Workaround: To capture 8-bit HD media to an Avid Unity MediaNetwork workspace, you
must unmirror the workspace then capture the 8-bit HD media.
n
You can then mirror that workspace after the 8-bit 1:1 HD media is captured. Synchronize
the workspace with the Administration tool after the mirroring is re-applied
61
➤
Avid Unity Media Network Macintosh OSX clients are allowed to mount up to 256
workspaces. An error message is not displayed if you attempt to mount more than 256
workspace.
➤
If the File Manager service is turned off or the media engine powers down for any reason
such as for maintenance or a system crash, all Mac OS X clients must be rebooted to
reconnect.
➤
The Administration Tool for Mac OS X clients has Optimize, Synchronize, Add/Remove
Drives, and Move Workspace options disabled.
Workaround: Perform the Optimize, Synchronize, Add/Remove Drives, or Move
Workspace operations from the media engine or a Windows client.
➤
Mac OS X clients cannot mount workspaces that have one or more spaces in the workspace
name.
Workaround: Create workspaces with no spaces in their names. If you need to separate two
words in a workspace name, use an underscore (_) instead of a space.
