Final Cut & Logic network user problems
I've been a long time lurker in this forum and your threads and posts have always been very helpful.
We have 3 suites of macs ranging in age from 4yrs to brand new this summer, they are all connected to Active Directory via the usual way and that all works fine.
I have just been given Final Cut Pro 7 and Logic Studio to install and image over the next week. I have installed both without much in the way of problems (apart from hard disk space in the older machines!) and both run fine under the local admin account.
Once the machines have been added to active directory and I log in as a test student Final Cut will not start. It goes through all the 'adding templates' etc and then just stops, the icon disappears from the dock and no more is heard, no error, nothing.
After looking through the console I *think* it is getting stuck at this line:-
compressord: installing XSanTest signal handler for SIGUSR1 (_xsanTestFlag = 0)
This is the line that completes with and admin account, without admin rights you don't even see it. The line above would suggest to me that its trying to install something (which you need admin rights for) to check to see if you have an XSan.
Has anyone else come across this and found a way around it? I could give all users full read/write access to the hard drive and that cures the problem but I don't really want the little darlings having that amount of access.
I've given a folder on the hard drive call Final Cut read/write access to be used as a scratch disk and a cache store but that doesn't seem to have helped the problem.
I get the same sort of error with Logic (loads loops etc then just closes), although I have been able to trouble shoot it at present.
If anyone can help me with either of these problems then I would be truly grateful and apologies for the wall of text!
