We've recently moved some of our storage an OS X server. We access it via SMB1 on the Windows 7 machines that are using ArcGIS 10.
By and large, things seem to be working well, but one of our users has been experiencing hangs whenever geoprocessing tasks are run. The connection to the server seems to be lost, and it either requires a restart to reconnect or waiting for some significant period of time.
My question is twofold.
1) Does anyone have any experience with different server environments causing trouble? IE, is ArcGIS only happy running on Windows Server and nothing else?
2) Has anyone else experienced anything like this ever?
