Might as well put it out there. Is it still included in the OS on the dev preview?

Thanks!

Rear of the new mac pro looks to still have 2x ethernet, just no pci slots inside!!!!

So promise sanlink £600 or thunderbolt pci chassis £300 becomes part of the price for us. There has always been an overhead per machine to connect fibre its just gone up a bit, will be interesting to see the unit price for the new mac pro.

Securing a tiny mac pro with external hard drives and pci chassis will be a real pain in my environment - education

For those who are not developers, can we get some sort of non-nda breaking info about XSAN?

Like maybe "Thumbs up" or "Thumbs down" or "Stay tuned" ?

You remember that 10.8.4 update last week with the Xsan fixes? It does seem to indicate the development team is still employed and moving the product ahead.

Sign in to Apple dev site, download it and install. Launch terminal and run cvversions. What do you see? LOL. I did.

Or just login to dev forums and see what's posted there. Hmm. Ya, I did that too :p

The future for Xsan remains bright, as does the Mac Pro. Will be interesting to see how the new Mac Pro works in production with thunderbolt etc.

I have some ideas for a case already :D I am really surprised more people are not talking about SMB2 changes. What does this mean for the traditional Apple File Server? What does this mean for the guys at Group Logic.

I don't think a Thumbs Up breaks any NDAs.

So. Thumbs Up for Xsan :)

I am not under the NDA as I am not a member of the dev program. I can say big thumbs up, really liking this SMB2 stuff as well.

Just an update, once you get the OS installed properly, Mavericks is out and works well with Xsan, no problems once the systems boot.

Just did a exhausting test for a client regarding SMB versus AFP.

No thumbs up for Mavericks. :(

It's doesn't switch to smb on default, it not faster and it is not working better than AFP.. bummer.

I've tested with 10.6.8, 10.7.5, 10.8.5 and 10.9.0 clients to an NetApp SMB share (SMB 2.1), a Windows Server 2012 (SMB 3.0) and a ExtremeZ-IP AFP share installed on Windows Server 2012.

The ExtremeZ-IP AFP share won... big time.
