SANmp v.3.0 for Mac and Windows has been released to the public.

Mac OS X: SANmp

Windows 32/64-bit: SANmp

Before installing, please note:
  • Before upgrading from any previous version of SANmp it is strongly recommended that you disconnect from the SAN and uninstall any existing installations of SANmp.
  • The Client and Admin are now bundled into one installer. To install SANmp Admin, launch the SANmp installer and choose the Customize option. You'll be able to install Admin and Client at the same time with only one restart cycle.
  • Please review the readme.txt file and Help documents for more information about this new version.
New Features
  • Major GUI updates
  • Volume list shows more information (capacity, filesystem, etc.)
    - New Group View in the Volume List
    - New drive icons to better indicate mount permissions
  • SANmp CLI can now be run independent of the GUI
  • SANmp Client now lists all users who have a volume mounted
  • Support for 64-bit Windows XP
  • Support for 512, 1024 and 2048 byte block sizes
Minor Improvements
  • Using the Logout menu item brings up a window to log in as a different user
  • Select multiple volumes for autosync
  • Drive icons indicate if another user has a volume mounted WX
  • Tool tips on all buttons in both Admin and Client
  • User settings are now persistent in Client
  • In the Queue window (SANmp Admin Windows), the Clear button now clears only selected volumes
  • If a user's password is not the same on all SANmp disks, the username is marked with an asterisk in SANmp Admin
  • Volume info tab in SANmp Client now shows the drive letter on Windows
  • New shortcut keys
    - select all mounted volumes
    - show volume list
  • General stability improvements for Windows and Mac OS X
  • In some cases, Pro Tools 7.4 on windows crashed with multiple partitions
  • iSCSI target incompatibility with Windows Server 2003
  • iPod will not mount in some rare cases
  • Pro Tools 7.4 unable to write to HFS+ SANmp volumes in some cases
Known Issues
  • Microsoft dynamic disks are no longer supported (If you must access volumes >2TB with SANmp 3.0, you must upgrade to 64-bit Windows XP)
  • Uninstall will fail if either Admin or Client is currently running
  • If a SANmp volume is reformatted with a utility such as MacDrive, the filesystem reported by SANmp may be wrong
This is a free upgrade to all users and is available for download here.
