Is it just me or have any of you seen these issues.
I know about the failed update mentioned in another thread…this happened to me and the Studio is finally back up and running…and in checking it after the restore I’ve noticed some issues.
I’ve got an OWC Thunderbay mini in RAID 5 with the latest SoftRAID attached to the Studio with the TB cable that came with the drive and an OWC Envoy Pro FX TB SSD daisy chained off of the RAID.
Performance on the Studio itself to open folders on the RAID is very slow after the 13.2 update. I’ve got a folder 3 levels deep on the RAID with about 1,400 PDF files in it and it takes the Studio about 2-3 minutes to list the contents of this folder, Black Magic speed test gives me about 220 MB/s R/W speed and about 5000-6000 MB/s to the internal drive. The external with spinning drives is obviously slower but with 13.1 and earlier macOS versions I was getting up in the 300-500 MB/s transfer rates.
I’ve got a bunch of folders shared from the studio…almost all are on the RAID. There’s a ‘data’ store that’s the home file server as well as a couple of other shares that are used as the destination for Time Machine like CarbonCopyCloner backups using the Remote Macintosh destination options from our laptops, I’ve got similar shares also set up on a 2013 mini running Monterey.
From our laptops…the data share simply won’t mount anymore. Clicking on Network in finder, authenticating with an admin password (userid are consistent across all of the computers and both the admin account, the administrator group, and a specified user account on the Studio have full R/W rights to the data share. Trying to connect after the authentication from the laptop, I get the list of shares but clicking on any of the shares gives me the rotating line icon on the Finder window forever and it never connects, eventually timing out and telling me the destination can’t be found.
All of the CCC jobs on the laptops that depend on the mounted share fail. Those that use the Remote Macintosh destination proceed albeit slower than they did with 13.1.
Wife’s laptop (M1 Air that is still running 13.1 vice 13.2) also does not connect to either the shares, the share related CCC jobs, but again the CCC jobs using Remote Macintosh destination to the Studio work but more slowly than they used to with 13.1.
I’ve checked the share configurations and permissions and all seem to be fine…but have not yet tried just deleting the shares and recreating them with resetting the permissions…didn’t think that was necessary since the config on the Studio was restored from Time Machine.
I’ve got a ticket in with both Bombich and OWC to see if they’re aware of any issues, and initially I was also unable to connect to the Studio using Screens 4 from either the MBP or iPad Air 4 both up to date…but stopping and restarting Screen Sharing seems to have cleared that one up. I’ve stopped and restarted File Sharing (all the shares are SMB) and rebooted a dozen times through the process and none of that has helped either.
Edited to add…since I had to rebuild the Studio from scratch and TM restore the files, users, config, etc…I suppose there could be some sort of caching issue on the laptops that could be causing the issue…but I’m not smart enough to know where to look for them.
Thoughts and/or ideas? I’ve about run out of things to try short of recreating the shares and permissions.
