I have a client who has been storing their files locally on each of their workstations and backing up to attached USB drives. They want to move these files to a central file server on their network (four users) for shared access and a central point of storage/backups. I don't deal with AutoCAD often, but I recall there being some compatibility issues with Linux SMB sharing and slow file access times with AutoCAD. I wanted to check and see if this is still the case since many of the NAS units that fall into their price range are Linux based. Sorry for such basic questions, but I've been searching and not found much info. Maybe that means there isn't an issue? :)
- Do AutoCAD 2012 file access speeds suffer if the remote share is a non-Windows file share, or is this an old problem that's been resolved?
- Any other thoughts, suggestions, or gotchas regarding AC2012 file access from a NAS?
