    Delayed write failure on nexis client 7.3 on zone 4 100Mb connected Mac OS El capitan.

    Hi Avid, Bob,

    I just upgraded 2 Nexis Pro's from 6.0 to 7.3 at one of our customers in Greece. Upgrade went fine and all directly connected clients to the Dell switch work fine. However, without my prior knowledge, this client had an non editing Imac connected 7 floors up from the editing systems through their 100Mb office network just for copying files. They were able with version 6 to read and write to the Nexis without issue (weirdly) but with 7.3 client they can't write to the nexis anymore. Read still works.

    Now I'm aware that 100Mb clients were never supported and since version 7.1.1 100Mb clients should not be able to connect but I would like to confirm that this practically applies to writing to the Nexis and not reading from the Nexis.

    Regards,

    As you know a 100Mb connected client is not supported. We've seen issues with this causing the storage manager to crash. It isn't the Client Manager, but the system director that doesn't allow for the 100Mb client.

    This should be blocked, but it might be specific to writing as that is what was causing the issue. Regardless, do not connect a 100Mb client to NEXIS.
