We are having a problem with keeping two files locked (Read-Only) for our
Mac users. We have recently moved an application package (SASIxp from NCS
Pearson) from a NW 4.11 server to a NW 6.5 server (accessed via AFP). There
are two Mac executables that need to be locked (marked Read-Only) so that
multiple users can access the app at the same time. When we lock these
files they unlock themselves after the app is launched.

When the files resided on the NW 4.11 server this was not a problem. We
have tried locking them from an OS 9 client. We have tried locking them
from an OS X client. We have tried locking the files on a Mac workstation
and then copying them to the server. We have tried marking the files
Read-Only from a Windows workstation. We have tried marking the files
Read-Only in ConsoleOne. In each instance the files initially show up
locked as expected, but when we launch the app on a Mac workstation and then
quit the app and close the folder it shows up as unlocked when you reopen
the folder.

Environment:
Netware 6.5SP3 (OES)
NW65OS3A Patch
N65NSS3A Patch
65AFP239 Patch
Volume has been made case-insensitive per TID10092060
Mac OS 9.2.2 and OSX 10.3.9

Thanks for any help and insights.
