That sounds like a good solution. So I had the luck, that my calibre
library worked on a nas for about half a year. Not to bad for the
problems you described. :-)

Oh, that remembers me about crappy windows software not running on a
samba share. There optimistic locking and other technics lead to the
same problems.

So I will switch my library back to the local drive and run a script to
syncronize it with rsync to the server. Tanks!
