    DeletingAtticFiles

    Anyone know what this file does in the Attic folder? Read a recent post that mentioned the file and deleting it, but am wondering why it is there and what it does.

    Re: DeletingAtticFiles

    There is a file that randomly shows up in the attic folder called DeletingAtticFiles.  On a mac it shows up as an executable file.  When present, it seems to cause problems with unity clients.  If you open it with Text Wrangler it sometimes has the name of the problematic client.  After deleting it, all is okay, but I am wondering what it is...

    Re: DeletingAtticFiles

    anyway, different question if I may intervene. Does anybody know a tool to automatically delete attic files, at a scheduled time?

    You should post your question under a new topic instead of hijacking this thread.

    Re: DeletingAtticFiles

    Now that's a fun way to revive a 12 year old Thread!

     

    Best guess is a permissions issue with the Attic folder itself.   Your options are to check those permissions-  or select a new location for the Attic.

    Re: DeletingAtticFiles

    I renamed the attic project folder with an "x" in front of it, which forced Avid to create a new one.  Problem solved.

    Re: DeletingAtticFiles

    Hello!

    I have been getting the same issue, using Media Composer 18.12.1, with ISIS Client Manager 4.7.11.  I recently took you suggestion and recreated a new Unity Attic folder for 5 workstations and so far so good.  Was this by any chance a permanent fix for you?

     

    Curious why is stated happening when I upgraded to 2018.12.1?

     

    Running Media Composer on the 2013 Mac Pro trashcans.

    Re: DeletingAtticFiles

    Strongly encourage you to update to the latest NEXIS Client, the ISIS client hasn't been updated for years. What OS are you running? I'm surprised that it would even work with a MacPro running a version of OS X that supports 18.12.1. I would also encourage you to update to 18.12.2 as there have been a number of fixes in that release. 
    There have been so many issues resolved between 4.7.11 and NEXIS 19.2.2.

    Re: DeletingAtticFiles

    Hello!

    Thanks for the reply.  Running El Capitan, I know its not listed as supported for 18.12.1 but we did some tests before rolling it out and the only issue is the DeletingAtticFiles - which so far so good with renaming the Unity Attic  - We are running an ISIS 5000, so decided to stay with the Isis Client Manager which they updated to 4.7.13 pretty recently in January.

     

    Not really interested in going to Nexis Client Manager but am potentially willing to upgrade to 4.7.13 if it is recommended.  Of course we could upgrade the operating systems to Sierra or High Sierra, but again no major issues so far so considering waiting until the next major upgrade before doing the operating system.

     

    We were having issues with 2018.8 and 2018.9, and when I researched into the versions, it seemed that 2018.12 - minus a few things (like script sync), seemed stable.

    Re: DeletingAtticFiles

    There were no changes to the client between 4.7.11 and 13. Media Composer 18.12.1 is not supported on El Cap or with the ISIS 4.7.11 client.

    You're on your own.

    Re: DeletingAtticFiles

    Thanks, quick question, when I checked the version support for ISIS 4.7.11 it says it supports Media Composer 8.6 and later - and 4.7.13 defnitely lists 2018.12, so unless I am wrong can you point me to the right direction?  Here is the compatibility chart I was using:

    Re: DeletingAtticFiles

    That support matrix is talking about the System Director as the client doesn't support the OS required by Media Composer. Media Composer 18.12.2 is supported with Macintosh v10.12.6, 10.13.6, 10.14.3.

    The latest OS the ISIS 4.7.13 client supports is 10.11. In order to be in a supported configuration you need to update your OS to 10.12.6 which will require you to update to the NEXIS client.
