Saving .rvt files to Lion Server

We are running Revit 2012 Suites on iMac w/Parallels w/Windows XP SP3.  Office file server is a Lion Server running 10.7.5.  While working in Revit we can; save PDF's to server, export DWG/DXF to server, and for a few moments after opening a file we can save a .rvt file to the server. But after more than ~2min, Revit freezes at any save attempt and we have to force quit through the task manager.

 

Last few lines of journal entry for event reads as follows.

 

[ Jrn.Directive "DocSymbol"  _
         , "[Res.TemplateLionTest.rvt]"
 '  0.000008    2:<<<BackupFileManager::smileytongue:reUnlockPreCommit
 '  0.003275     3:<<<relinquishAllLocks
 '  0.003386    2:<<m_oSaveToTempFile->preCommit
 ' 2:< Error encountered renaming main file to backup. Error message: Access to P:\Projects\XXXXX Project\CAD\Revit\Res.TemplateLionTest.rvt was denied.   ]

 

then repeats the '2:< Error... line for a few pages..

 

this error has persisted throught Revit 2011 and 2012 versions.

Anyone else encounter this? Possibly with solution?

So, is the lack of response from anyone in Autodesk due to Revit not being supported in a Mac environment? Apparently I'm not the only one with issues in saving .rvt files to a Lion Server.

ah, a non-solution solution. thats great. i should just pile on the kudos eh?

maybe you could have left it 'unsolved' on the chance that one of us subscribers may have figured something out.

Well,

 

If you buy a car that runs on diesel, don't expect help if you try and run it on gas.
