We are running oes2 and are having problems with Excel and other office applications.

around 50% of the time when two users are opening an excel file on a Novell Server at another site it allows both users to open the Excel file without saying that the file is already locked by the other user.

It also happens on the local site but no-where near as often, but it does happen.

I'm a bit stuck what to look at as a solution we are using various versions of office from 2000 to 2007 but all are patched as much as they can be, and Windows 2000 and Windows XP on the PC's.

We never had the problem before we installed OES2 a few months ago and I am getting more and more users complaining about it and I don't really know where to look.

Do any of you wonderful people have any ideas?
