InDesign crashes using SMB shares

Posted on 2009-02-17

We are planning to move all data from a Mac Server to a Windows Server 2003 clustered environment. We have Mac clients that will be connecting to images linked in Adobe InDesign CS4 that will reside on the Windows cluster. I was told that InDesign crashes when connecting to files over 10mb on a server. Can anyone explain this? Would the SMB hotfix resolve this issue if we applied it to our cluster (package name is PKG14152)? Are there any other recommendations? It is unlikely that we can expect our users to add the image locally while working on it, then uploading afterwards. This puts too much extra work on the users.

This link suggests the problem occurred with OS 10.4.2, but was cured by 10.4.3, then reappeared with 10.5.2 and was cured by 10.5.3.

Thanks so much. I will upgrade my clients before I move the data to the servers.
