I am just trying to get an idea of what's going to be involved if I decide to migrate all of our mac users data from a Windows Server 2008 R2 server to a server that would run Mavericks.
The connections using SMB are just too slow compared to using AFP.
When I transfer all of the files to the mac server, what happens to permissions? Will they convert automatically?
Can I even format the disks for this? We use an IBM DS4700 SAN. It would be about 8TB of data.
Will Mavericks work well as a file server or is that not recommended?
Please let me know any concerns or issues that you see happening in this scenario. Also let me know what other info you need.
