[Samba] FOX PRO 2.6 on SMB

Hello list

We have some Fox Pro apps shared on Samba server (I know FOX sucks) and
sometimes we need to recreate indexes, and we have to call all the users
and ask them to close their programs.

If we kill the user's smb process we got corrupted indexes... 

here's the question : is there any way to force the used files by an smb
user process to close avoiding corruption, or perhaps make the server
"think" that the user's the one closing the files.

Thanks in advance

Juan Pablo
