Hi Fellow Samba Admins,

I am having a file locking problem. The system will only let one user to access the database file at a time. When the second user tries to access this file a message pop up and it says "Could not use the 'filename'; File already in use".

I tried the "locking = no" parameter in smb.conf file but It does not seem to do the trick. My samba version is 1.19.17p2.

It would be great if someone can help.

Thanks very much
Quynh Hoang
