I have an iPhoto issue that maybe someone could help me with.
Just to give a little back history, at work we have 3 MACs purchased in 2005 running on OSX 10.3 & iPhoto version 5. We configured iPhoto on those 3 MACs to used a shared iPhoto library located on a remote snap server. We are able to get those 3 MACs to access the shared iPhoto library at the same time without any issues.
During the summer of 2007, we purchased 3 iMacs each with OS X 10.4 & iPhoto version 6. We configured the 3 new iMacs to point to an iPhoto shared library on the remote snap server just as was done with the older MACs. The problem now is that only one of the Macs can use the iPhoto application at a time. Any attempts to use iPhoto while one of the Macs is connected to the shared library results in a message stating that the application is locked. The only was for any other Mac to use iPhoto is for the current Mac using iPhoto to quit the application.
I spoke to Apple support, & they stated that there were changes in both iPhoto & OS X 10.4 which prevented iPhoto from having multiple concurrent connections.
My questions are - 1)Does anyone know of any workarounds, third party utilities that allow OS X 10.4 & iPhoto 6 to have multiple concurrent connections?
2) Are there any other photo management software that offer the same functionality as iPhoto but also supports multiuser access?
