My design team is looking to get off the server we share with the rest of our company because a.) we have to relink everything on our AI/ID documents whenever we want to work on them b.) we get randomly disconnected c.) our Finder shortcuts to various places on the server keep disappearing and d.) we need something faster for video. (The rest of the company is running PCs and having no problems with the server while the three of us on our Macs are getting tired of this)
How do your team work off a server? How many workstations do you have and what is your server setup? We're considering running a Mac Mini with external HD in the server room but we're not great with networks and our IT people tend to shrug when we try to solve Mac specific stuff.
