If you are using a computer that uses RAID drives, you could see a problem if you plan to upgrade to any of the CS versions of Adobe products.
According to this article at Yahoo!, one user was experiencing lots of problems after upgrading to Acrobat 7. Everytime he logged on to his computer, Acrobat would asked to be reactivated. Apparently, the user’s Level1 RAID made it seem – to Acrobat, anyway – that he was trying to install his copy of the software on multiple computers.
An Adobe spokesman goes on to say “that the specific issue was probably that the customer’s RAID drives were generating discrete “machine disk identifiers,” or making Acrobat think there was more than one computer trying to access a single license. That or a software/system conflict somewhere.”
This could cause more problems as all of Adobe’s CS programs (InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop) as well as some of its video editing software, uses the same activation scheme.
I wonder, just how many of you are using RAID drives in your main production computers? Is it really all that common, or are they still somewhat relegated to use in server setups?
