Default Re: Major issues with Nexis

Hi

We have issues too. Here's the setup:

- Mac Studio M1 Max, 32GB RAM, Monterey 12.6.1
- Pro Tools Ultimate 2022.10
- Latest software, both Nexis and Client manager
- Nexis Pro 20TB, Dell N4032 switch
- Using the Mac Studio's 10Gb ethernet for Nexis connection

Getting random "unable to auto save" messages. At some point Pro Tools freezes while writing the auto save file. The last autosaved session is incomplete, as it is smaller than the previous ones. This happens every couple of hours.

Our intel machines do not have this problem.

Tuomas

For what it is worth:

Avid Nexis 2022.12 released on 18 Jan 2023 - Installed server and client just now ...will feed back on how it goes.

Fingers crossed here. Any news on the outcome?

Hi, Has anyone had any updates on this? Running a Mac Studio M1 on Monterey and Pro Tools 2022.10 and latest Nexis which is seeming to have the same saving issues.

Encountering the same issues on my end as well. Workaround has been to use SMB. Nexis has been pretty much unusable for us. Very frustrating.

Mac Studio with M1 Ultra Running Pro Tools 2022.10 and Nexis Client Manager 2022.12 with matching firmware.

Hi, I am having issues now with 2022.12 again. It seems like the Nexis is being incorrectly seen as read only or something. Working locally the sessions run fine and also the performance increases dramatically. I'll let you know if I get any intel from Avid support or our distributers support team.

Yes these are the exact errors we are getting. I had a emporary period of it not happening on 2012.12 but I was having errors with rendering which I suspect was down to the same issues. I'm pretty sure it must be down to a permissions bug. I'll let you know if I get any info from Avid regarding fixes!

Does anyone actually have a reliable, working setup with Apple silicon computers running Pro Tools sessions from a Nexis system?

EDIT: just found out there's a new version 2023.3 with fixes - but I can't install it, because our Nexis Pro 20TB model is EOL and has no more support contract :)

Hey all.

Wondering if you have tried running Protools 2022.12 or 2023.03 in Apple Sillicon Native mode (Get Info on Protools app and Desellect Rosetta Mode).

Many of the Plugins, depending on which do you use, may not appear because it's still not native...

Please note that the 2022.12 AS (Apple Sillicon) version is still a "test" version. 2023.03 should be more complete.

Running as Intel (Rosetta Mode) version, the problems are the same on all versions:

PT 2022.12 or 2023.03 on Nexis client 2022.12 or 2023.03.
HW is a MAC studio Ultra, 64GB RAM connected to the network with the onboard 10Gb NIC.
The idea is that running in AS mode, things should be much better, with NEXIS. But the lack of all plugins running in AS native mode kills the PT AS Native usage.

Any similar feedback?
