I have an old Mac-server that our marketing department uses as a File-server for several Mac Clients. I want to get rid of it for several reasons:
- Our primary backup system does not support the Mac Server
- Our AV solution does not support Macs
- No Mac Admin skills in IT.
- The server needs to be upgraded, due to age and capacity issues.
What I'd like to do is present a Share from either a Windows or an HP-UX server. However the existing files use characters that are invalid on the other OS's. We could write scripts to rename them, but we are concerned that the files are linked to other files internally, and renaming the file would break the link (think of an HTML file that links to a JPG, rename the JPG, and the link is broke)
So how do we rename the files, while preserving the linkages? Is there a better way?
The Mac-Server is OS X Server 10.0, I'm not sure about the clients, but they are newer (about a year or two old).
