What Is New In Version 5.0
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.0 introduces 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:
•
Avid Unity Media Engine is the Ethernet server, designed to use the build-in Ethernet
ports. One Ethernet client can connect directly into the Avid Unity Media Engine or the
port can be used to connect Ethernet switches supporting up to 20 Ethernet clients.
This model does not include a Fibre Channel adapter board but it can be purchased
separately as an option to give the Avid Unity Media Engine, Fibre Channel capabilities.
You must purchase the Fibre Channel adapter board and a Fibre Channel switch to add
optional Avid MEDIArray XT storage. Up to 26 Fibre Channel clients are supported
through the Fibre Channel switch.
•
Avid MEDIArray XT is a drive enclosure with a Fibre Channel connection used to
connect to a Fibre Channel switch. Up to four Avid MEDIArray XT drive enclosures
can be added to a Avid Unity Media Engine.
Hardware and Software Requirements
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.0 does not support any earlier versions of MediaNetwork
software. You must have Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.0 or later to use v5.x hardware.

Supported Drives for MediaNetwork
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.0 supports 250 GB and 500 GB drives in the new chassis.
Drives in earlier releases of Avid Unity MediaNetwork with less storage capacity, are not
supported in the new chassis. As drive size and drive speed improve, newer drives will be
available for use. Contact your Avid representative for more product information.
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
14
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.
Avid MEDIArray XT Storage Systems
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:
•
1403 - For Billing Service
•
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 the 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
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 XT Storage Systems
The Avid MEDIArray XT system is a PC-compatible system that runs the Windows XP
Professional operating system. The Avid MEDIArray XT system must be dedicated to
service only the workgroup. Install only the Avid MEDIArray XT workgroup software and
other Avid-authorized software on the Avid MEDIArray XT system.
Memory Configuration
The Avid MEDIArray XT ships with two 512 MB modules installed for a total of 1 GB of
memory.
Daisy Chaining
The Avid Unity Media Engine or Avid MEDIArray XT do not support daisy chaining.
15
Installing MediaNetwork Software
The following sections describe how to install your MediaNetwork software. Avid ships all
new media engines and Avid MEDIArray XT 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 “Client Software Installation” on
page 17 and then use the Avid Unity MediaNetwork Client Guide for more information.
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.

Client Software Installation
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.
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:
Installing Windows Clients
Windows Autologin
Avid recommends that you turn off the Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP
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.
17
Bonjour Name (formerly called Rendezvous)
When you are installing a Mac OS X client, you also need to assign the client a Bonjour
Name. The Bonjour Name appears in the Sharing window below the Computer Name. The
Bonjour Name can be the same or different from the Computer Name, but must be unique
among all of the Windows and Macintosh clients.
n
The Computer Name and the Bonjour Name cannot contain any spaces or apostrophes.
The media engine uses the Bonjour Name in the same way it used the Windows 2000
Network Identification to determine which clients are currently logged in.
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/
Mac OS X Autologin
Avid recommends that you turn off the Mac OS X 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 or media engine from mounting workspaces on the desktop. 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.
Fibre Manager
The Fibre Manager can display up to 400 workspaces in the Connections window.
18
Client Software Installation
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 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.
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 operation.
To turn off automatic software updates:
1. Select 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 “Automatically check for updates when you have a network connection.”
5. Close the Software Update window to save the change.
Macintosh Hidden Files
When a Mac OS X client writes some files to a MediaNetwork workspace, it actually write
two files: a visible file and a hidden file (the resource fork). Visible files usually contain only
an icon for the creator application and the name of the file. The hidden files appear as an
icon followed by a period (.), an underscore (_), and the file name on Windows clients.
n
The Mac OS X version of Avid Composer Products software does not create hidden files.
Hidden files are not always hidden. They are controlled when the workspace is viewed from
a Mac OS X client, only the visible file is seen.
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.
19

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.
23
Disk Software
When you use your Avid Unity Media Engine the following scenarios could happen that
appear to be 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.
Setting the Virtual File Manager Name
The Avid Unity Media Engine needs to have the Virtual File Manager Name set to a name
that is different from the Windows Computer Name. Having different names prevents all
clients from receiving the following error message:
Exception: file other, filename: GetUnityInfo can’t
UNITY_IOCTL_GET_PERF_DATA_V1 on ioRefNum
If the error message appears, it causes the editor window to show File Other.

Information About Avid Unity Media Engine
Avid Unity Media Engine Directory and File Limits
Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.0 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.

25
Using the Product Recovery DVD
If you need to restore your media engine or other MediaNetwork systems by installing the
Product Recovery DVD, remember that the procedure restores only the operating system
and the hardware drivers. It does not restore the MediaNetwork software. The
MediaNetwork software must be reinstalled separately, after the operating system recovery
is complete.
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.
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/onlineSupport/.
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.

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.
➤
When you try to create a workspace, you might receive an error message stating that the
requested workspace size exceeds the actual available size even though the Administration
tool shows sufficient space in the Max size display in the New Workspace dialog box. This is
because the maximum workspace size displayed in the New Workspace dialog box is an
approximation from the media engine. The actual size is not known until you create the
workspace.
Workaround: Create a new workspace and reduce the size — for example, by 1 GB. Repeat
this operation until you can successfully create a workspace.
30
Limitations
➤
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

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.
31
➤
Changing the drive letters of mounted workspaces on Windows clients while the Avid
Composer Products software is running can cause FILE_NOT_FOUND errors when you
attempt to access media or quit the application.
➤
Using the Macintosh Finder to delete a large number of files from a workspace takes a very
long time.
Workaround: Do one of the following:
t
Delete large numbers of files from within the Avid Composer Products application
either from a bin or using the Media tool.
t
Delete large numbers of files from the Finder by placing all the files you want to delete
into a folder, and then clicking the folder and dragging it to the Trash.
➤
Drive Z might not display correctly when mounted on the Avid Unity Media Engine. The
drive appears in Windows Explorer. All of the data for the workspace is available and
mounted correctly.
➤
Bins saved from a Macintosh client are not usable by a Windows client.
Workaround: Make sure you save bins on the Macintosh client with Windows Compatible
File Names selected.
➤
Rebooting a Windows 2000 client while the MediaNetwork file system is busy can cause
other clients to underrun.
Workaround: Do not reboot Windows 2000 clients while other clients are busy working
with media on the MediaNetwork workspaces.
➤
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.
➤
32
Avid does not support deleting folders or files in a shared workspace while more than one
client is using the workspace. This can cause media to go offline and applications that access
the workspace to report missing files.
Known Issues
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
➤
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).
➤
When you use the Configuration Assistant in the Avid Setup Manager to create a new drive
set, the Configuration Assistant might automatically attempt to create a drive set with
84 drives and 1 spare drive. Avid MediaNetwork supports drive sets with a maximum of
79 drives and 1 spare drive.
➤
Systems using Macintosh clients with an ATTO Celerity host adapter board and an Avid
Unity Media Engine might not see all of the drives in an attached MEDIArray enclosure.
Workaround: You need to adjust the ATTO Celerity configuration settings in order to see
the MEDIArray enclosure, changing the setting for the maximum logical unit numbers
(LUNs) from the default 32 to 33 in order to see all the MEDIArray drives. The reason for
this is that the media engines is seen as a LUN, which reduces the available number of LUNs
to 31.
(Macintosh) To change the default LUN setting:
1. Navigate to the folder where you installed the ATTO Configuration tool, and then
double-click ATTO Configuration.app.
The ATTO Configuration tool opens.
2. In the Device Listing window, navigate to the appropriate channel on your host adapter.
The NVRAM Configuration tab opens.
33
3. In the Max LUNs per Target text box, type 33.
4. Click Commit.
n
➤
You must restart your system for the change to take effect.
Unity fails to install Java if Java was previously uninstalled. If you inadvertently uninstall
Java from your system and then attempt to install Unity, the Unity software will not install.
Workaround: Re-install Java.
➤
Drive Repair will not start if the Admin Tool is open on the media engine. The repair seems
to start, but in the Server Log viewer the Drive Repair just waits and make no progress
(notice “making exchange items available” message is not seen.
Workaround: Close the Admin Tool and navigate into a workspace through Network
Neighborhood. Once this is done the data repair starts.
➤
If you change the IP address of a MediaNetwork server (media engine, MediaManager,
TransferManager, or Avid ProEncode), you must reboot the server after you change the IP
address for the change to take place. If you do not reboot these servers, clients can still make
connections to the affected server but might not work as expected. You must also update
your clients to look for the new server IP address.
You must also run PortServerConfiguration.exe to reconfigure the system registry.
➤
The Setup Manager frequently lists some drives in the data drive set as missing. This occurs
most often on media engines that have a large number of drives (over 30). You cannot
perform any operation on a drive when it is listed as missing.
Drives can be listed as missing under any of the following conditions:
•
You start the media engine and then quickly start the Setup Manager and click the data
drive set.
•
You add a drive to or remove a drive from the data drive set.
•
You perform a drive recovery.
Workaround: If you have drives listed as missing in your data drive set, press the F5
function key to refresh the Setup Manager window. All of the drives should appear when the
window is refreshed.
34
Known Issues
➤
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.
➤
If a drive is physically missing from the data drive set when a drive repair is performed, the
RecoveryInfo.dat file (which maintains a record of the drives in the drive set) is not updated.
Workaround: Make sure that all of the correct drives for the drive set are physically
installed in the Avid MEDIArray XT drive enclosure when you perform a drive repair. If
they are not, at your first opportunity after the drive repair is completed, stop and start the
MediaNetwork software using the Monitor Tool.
➤
If you rename a file in a workspace, add a drive to or remove a drive from the workspace’s
allocation group, and perform an optimization of the workspace, the optimization fails.
Workaround: Close the Administration Tool used to perform the optimization. Have all
clients unmount any mounted workspaces. Start the Administration Tool on the media
engine and perform the optimization. The optimization now finishes correctly.
Media Engine and Avid MEDIArray XT Hardware
➤
Avid Unity Media Engine does not see/share externally connected Avid MEDIArray XT
drives if the media engine and Avid MEDIArray XT are booted at same time as a Fibre
Channel client.
Workaround: The Avid MEDIArray XT must be completely started before booting or
rebooting the Avid Unity Media Engine.
➤
If you change the IP address of a Avid Unity Media Engine, you must reboot the server after
you change the IP address for the change to take place. You must also run
PortServerConfiguration.exe to reconfigure the system registry. If you do not reboot the
Avid Unity Media Engine, clients can still make connections to the affected server but might
not work as expected. You should also update your clients to look for the new server
IP address.
35
➤
An Ethernet client cannot mount the desired workspaces. The only available workspaces are
those of another user.
Workaround: Do one of the following:
➤
t
If you are using a Windows client, right-click the Connection Manager icon, and select
Change User. This will allow you to log in with a different user name.
t
If you are using a Macintosh client, select Connection > Change User. This will allow
you to log in with a different user name.
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.
➤
If you quit and restart the Fibre Channel support software service (IBOD), clients cannot
connect to the Avid Unity Media Engine.
Workaround: Reboot the Avid Unity Media Engine to allow clients to connect.
➤
The Avid Unity Media Engine requires a static IP address when you are configuring your
network. Avid installers and applications use the IP address to recognize the system, not the
computer name.
➤
The Setup Manager might list some drives in the data drive set as missing. You cannot
perform any operation on a drive when it is listed as missing.
Drives can be listed as missing under any of the following conditions:
•
You start the MediaNetwork software and then quickly start the Setup Manager and
click the data drive set.
•
You add a drive to or remove a drive from the data drive set.
•
You perform a drive repair.
Workaround: If you have drives listed as missing in your data drive set, press the F5
function key to refresh the Setup Manager window. All of the drives should appear when the
window is refreshed.
➤
36
If you have one or more Avid Unity Media Engine and a number of Ethernet clients, and the
Avid Unity Media Engine and Ethernet clients use local user accounts to allow users to
access MediaNetwork workspaces, users must use the Change User command in the
Connection Manager to mount workspaces from the Avid Unity Media Engine.
Known Issues
Workaround: Avid recommends you use domain user accounts for the Avid Unity Media
Engine and Ethernet clients. This allows users to access MediaNetwork workspaces directly
using the Connection Manager without having to use the Change User command in the
Connection Manager. It also prevents the need to replicate local user accounts on all of the
Avid Unity Media Engines.
➤
The Monitor Tool might show “Megabytes per second” values over 100,000 MB. These
values are erroneous. Closing and opening the Monitor Tool does not clear the values.
Workaround: Leave the Monitor Tool running. Over time, the “Megabytes per second”
values return to the normal range of 80 MB to 100 MB.
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.
➤
If the Administrator account or a user account does not have a password on the account, the
Administrator or a user can log in using any password.
Workaround: Avid recommends that you assign a password to the Administrator account
and all user accounts.
A Drive Repair will not start if the Admin 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 Admin Tool, then navigate into a workspace through Network
Neighborhood. Once that was done the data copy started.
➤
The Administration Tool Connection Monitor window incorrectly shows all active clients to
be logged in as Administrator. This makes it difficult to determine which client is currently
connected to the MediaNetwork workgroup.
Workaround: To determine which client is logged in to the MediaNetwork workgroup, use
the system name that appears in the Host Name column of the Connection Monitor window.
37
Windows Clients — General Information
➤
The Connection Manager can display a maximum of 500 workspaces. This might become a
problem when you are able to connect to more than one Avid Unity workgroup, and you
have access to a large number of workspaces from each workgroup.
Workaround: Use the Administration Tool to limit the number of workspaces that any user
can access in each Avid unity MediaNetwork.
➤
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.
➤
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 2000 or
Windows XP clients do not reconnect.
Workaround: To see the media engine, right click My Computer, select Manage and rescan
System Devices.
➤
38
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).
Known Issues
Windows 2000 Clients
➤
If your Windows (Fibre Channel or Ethernet) client has the ability to connect to more than
one Avid Unity workgroup, the Connection Manager displays only workspaces from the
systems that are active. If a connection to a workgroup is available, no message is displayed.
If a connection to a workgroup is not available, a message is displayed.
➤
Entering the Fibre Channel adapter board BIOS on a client connected to a Avid Unity Media
Engine can put the Fibre Channel adapter board in the Avid Unity Media Engine in an
unusable state until the Avid Unity Media Engine is rebooted.
Workaround: To enter the Fibre Channel adapter board BIOS on a Avid Unity Media
Engine FS client:
1. Shut down the client.
2. Disconnect the Fibre Channel cable from the client.
3. Boot the client and make the necessary changes in the Fibre Channel adapter board
BIOS.
4. Shut down the client.
5. Reconnect the Fibre Channel cable to the client.
6. Boot the client and resume your work.
➤
When you use After Effects® and Avid Codecs to render a file larger than 2 GB to a
MediaNetwork workspace, a generic drive error is returned when the file reaches 2 GB.
Workaround: Avid recommends you segment the After Effects file into several pieces, each
smaller than 2 GB. This is an After Effects problem. For more information on using After
Effects with Avid Composer Products software, see the Adobe Web site:
www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/141b2.htm
➤
If you replace the Alacritech Ethernet adapter board in a Windows 2000 client (editing
client) before you remove the driver, the Alacritech driver cannot be upgraded.
Workaround: Use the following process to upgrade the Alacritech driver if you have
already replaced the Alacritech Ethernet adapter board:
To fix the client and upgrade the Alacritech Ethernet adapter board:
1. Click the Start button and select Run. The Run window opens.
2. Type regedit. The Regedit window opens.
39
3. Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services
4. Delete the ATCP directory.
5. Select Registry > Exit to quit regedit and save the changes.
If you have any questions or problems, contact Avid Customer Support.
Windows XP Clients
➤
If you use the Map Network Drive command to map MediaNetwork workspaces on a
Windows XP client, you receive an error that you cannot unmap the workspaces when you
are finished.
Workaround: Click Ignore and the workspaces are unmapped.
➤
When you attempt to map a MediaNetwork workspace on a Windows XP client, you might
be prompted for a user name and password before the workspace is mapped.
➤
If the Connection Manager option “Automatically remount these workspaces the next time I
log in” is selected, the Windows XP client might not mount the workspaces automatically if
the client is set to present the Windows XP Welcome screen.
Workaround: Use the Connection Manager to mount the workspaces manually or deselect
the “Use the Welcome screen” option in the “Change the way users log on or off” section of
the User Accounts Control Panel.
➤
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.
➤
If you use the Map Network Drive command to map MediaNetwork workspaces on a
Windows XP client, you receive an error that you cannot unmap the workspaces when you
are finished.
Workaround: Click Ignore and the workspaces are unmapped.
40
Known Issues
➤
If an Windows XP client has TCP/IP enabled and the media engine is not configured to talk
to the Windows XP client using TCP/IP, the first time the XP client accesses an Avid
workspace after booting the system it can take 20 to 30 seconds.
Workaround: Configure the network so the media engine can be reached using TCP/IP.
➤
If you can reach the media engine using TCP/IP, but the media engine is using a virtual file
manager that does not match the computer name, (this is required for Failover and on the
workgroup) the first time the Windows XP client accesses an Avid workspace after booting
the system it can take 20 to 30 seconds.
Workaround: The NetBIOS over TCP/IP must be disabled to remove this initial 20 second
delay.
1. From Network Connections, right click Local Area Connection and select Properties.
2. Select “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)” and click Properties
3. Click Advanced.
4. Select the WINS tab.
5. Select “Disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP” in the NetBIOS setting panel.
6. Click OK, and then Close.
➤
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 Fibre Channel Clients
➤
When you attempt to transfer a group of files from one Unity workspace to another
workspace and the destination window is open, it is possible that all files will not be
transferred and you are not notified.
Workaround: Make sure that the destination window is closed and you transfer the files to
the destination icon
➤
If the File Manager service is turned of or the media engine powers down for any reason
such as a failover, maintenance, or a system crash, all Mac OS X clients must be rebooted to
reconnect.
41
➤
Using the Administration Tool to delete a workspace containing a large file can cause the
client to disconnect from the media engine and show a “Lost connection to server” error
message.
➤
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.
➤
If you copy media files from one MediaNetwork workspace to another, the media files are
corrupted and cannot be used.
Workaround: When you need to copy files from one workspace to another use Consolidate
to copy files from within the Avid Composer Products software to copy files from one
workspace to another. Alternatively, you can copy them to your desktop and then copy them
to the other workspace.
➤
If you click Cancel on the Authentication dialog box while you are installing the MAC OS X
client software, you can still install the software but with incorrect permissions for many
features to function correctly.
Workaround: If you install the software and it does not function correctly, uninstall the
software and reinstall it. Do not click Cancel on the Authentication dialog box and make
sure that you type the user name and password for an account with Administrator
permissions.
➤
Mac OS X clients are slow when saving Projects or Bins to shared MediaNetwork
workspaces.
➤
When a client using Macintosh OS 10.3.5 or later is attached to a Avid Unity Media Engine
that is connected to a Avid MEDIArray XT containing 16 drives (for a total of 32) the client
cannot see any of the drives.
Workaround: Remove one drive, two if mirrored, from the system until the total is 31 or
less. You can physically remove one or two drives from the system and use them as “cold”
spares.
n
➤
You must physically remove the drive(s) from the system, you cannot leave the drive in the
system and make it a “warm” spare.
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.
