[Michael Hancock] "I am not seeing this behavior for files stored on our QNAP. When the storage was local I could rename a file at the finder level with FCPX open and it would keep it linked to the file. On our network storage any change in the file name/location throws the file offline and a forced relink is necessary.
"


FCPX inode lookup of media on a network volume works fine using Macs and SMB. If media and library is hosted by a networked Mac, it behaves just like a local drive. You can move the files, rename them, even delete the symlinks from within the library package -- and upon restart FCPX automatically reconstructs the symlinks with the new filenames and locations on that shared network volume.

I don't know why it's not working on your QNAP. It would be interesting if this works on a Lumaforge Jellyfish or other NAS systems. Maybe it's related to whether you are using NFS, SMB or what version.

On Lumaforge's web site it says: "On most NAS based storage, FCPX Libraries and media management commands will not work because NAS storage is typically shared through AFP or SMB Protocols, which are not designed to work with the FCPX Library Architecture....Currently, the best way to run FCPX in a shared environment is through NFS Protocol. Unfortunately, for FCPX users most NAS based storage is not optimized for NFS."
