Hi all, Yesterday, Apple released the AppleShare IP 9.0.4 Update 1.0, which, as the name implies, improves compatibility with AppleShare IP 6.3.1 and Macintosh Manager 1.3 running on Mac OS 9.0.4. Apple offers several recommendations for achieving the best reliability and performance possible with this configuration, specifically: * AppleShare IP Server hard disks can become extremely fragmented when using Macintosh Manager due to the large number of client files, particularly on the servers that store user documents. This will decrease server performance. If you have DiskWarrior or Norton Speed Disk, it is a good idea to defragment your disk to improve performance. Defragmenting a large, full disk drive may take up to several hours. * If you are using an AppleShare IP Server with heavy load, or running it in conjunction with Macintosh Manager, check your server configuration for the following: - Remove OT AutoPush Support from the Extensions folder. - Remove Epson Launcher from the Extensions folder. - On the server computer, turn off Remember recently used items in the Apple Menu Options control panel. - In Sherlock, select Index Volumes from the Find menu and select the Schedule button. Disable indexing for all days. - Turn off virtual memory in the Memory control panel. * There is a known issue between some third party networking software and AppleShare IP servers running the Open Transport SNMP extensions. If the AppleShare IP Server stops responding at regular intervals, usually at night, Apple recommends that the SNMP extensions be removed or disabled. For those of you having trouble with Retrospect an AppleShare IP cohabitating peacefully, we'd be interested to learn if following the above guidelines reduces or eliminates your troubles.
