Hi everyone, im new to this forum but I need help so desperately. I
anyone can point me in the right direction I would be eternall
I have 5 vista 64 computers connected through a switch, I use them t
render 3d scenes across a network using maya, I have setup a share
folder on my main pc that holds the project files and also the renders
all of them are setup to render frames to \\JOHN-PC\3dwork\renders an
at first this works fine, but after between 1 and 5 hours something wil
happen, I start getting an array of errors popping up
Logging into a remote computer will confirm that the shared drive o
my main PC is no longer accessible, giving an array of \\JOHN-PC is no
accessible errors
These range from access is denied, server does not have enoug
storage, server cannot perform specified operation, and such dependin
on my networking settings but the result is always the same, some tim

I have tried a slew of fixes from various internet sites fro

Hi John,
I reciently had some networking issues and it turned out the
network card on my computer was corrupting files. My fix was to adjust the
NIC's properties in the Device Manager to set Task Offload = off. See if
that helps or try a difftent NIC.
