|Yes, we also noticed the same issue as of 10.6.6 upgrade.|
Unsure how to approach, but if I find a solution, I will share.

We have an odd problem with Blue and Mac NFS where sometimes an artist will save a file to disk, but their machine cannot see or open the file. Other machines on the network also can't see the file. After a reboot or approx 1hr, the file becomes accessible again. The strange thing is that you can see the file in Finder, 'more or cat' the file in a terminal, but Apps can't access it. The theory here is that something in the OSX file cache DB isn't being notify to update its cache.
Definitely go with SAS disk, we are in the process of moving from Nearline SATA to SAS. Nearline was ok with 40-60 artists, but that really pushed the limits.

Just wondering how many out there are using Isilon vs BlueArc for NAS. We are a very large broadcaster with roughly 150 designers and about 150 editors split between three sites (in the same city, but with fiber between sites). We use a combination of Adobe 2D/3D plus 3dsMAX and Cinema 4D and are 50% Mac (for design) and 50% Windows (Avid editors who also use Adobe from time to time. Note- we only use Avid ISIS for video streaming, no FCP/Premiere or any video playback from NAS). We currently use Isilon 12000X but are considering either adding some X200 nodes with partial SSD or switching to BlueArc. I?d love to hear your thoughts.
