I have a situation where users are locking up files. Which files are
locked up and which users lock them up appears to be random.
There is one file that is locked up frequently; twice a day sometimes.
This particular file is modified by our companies manufacturing software
when a user logs in to the software and since that happens all day I
suppose the file just has more opportunity than others to be locked.
Other files that have been locked up are copied from the server to the
client computer via the login script and they are not accessed again until
the next log in.
When a file is locked and is causing me a problem I can either clear the
users connection from the server or I can have the user log off their
computer. I have found no other way of stopping the file locks or solving
them after they occur.
Thanks in advance for any ideas you may have.
