    workspace not showing in OS

    Hello,

    I can mount a workspace with the Nexis client: A_Nexis_Projects

    But the workspace doesn't show in macOS Catalina. When I look at the Nexis client, there an extra number 1 behind the workspace.

    For example: workspace is A_NEXIS_PROJECT but under the online column it's /Volumes/A_NEXIS_PROJECT1

    No problem for Media Composer, it can see, read and write the workspace.

    So not a big problem but I'm intrigued.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Re: workspace not showing in OS

    When there are two volumes with the same name OS X will add a 1 to the name because the system can't create two mount points with the same name. From the menu select Go > Go to Folder > /Volumes.

    You will likely see two A_NEXIS_PROJECT volumes.

    Working with the premise that there aren't two volumes with the same name, this normally happens when a user logs out and doesn't unmount the workspaces.  When the new user logs in, the client mounts the workspace again and OSX adds the 1.

    The default for the client manager is to unmount workspaces when it is quit. If the option to leave the workspaces mounted is selected or if a file is open at the time, the client manager will not be able to unmount the workspace.

    That makes a lot of sense.

    Thanks,
