| I'm trying to make Samba as file-server for our database. This
| database is written in MS Access. Until now we used Windows 98
| BUT when we are trying to use Samba, we encountered
| problems. When is this database open more than from 4 stations,
| there are creating new connections on the Samba.
Make sure you have oplocks=no on the share
you have the pseudo-database file in, and do
make sure it's a sperate share.
Access shouldn't be used for more then 3-5
users when you depend on filesystems locks
across the network, even on Win9x or NT. Plan
to switch to using it as an "access method"
(the origin of its name) to a back-end DBMS
running on a dedicated machine
