Open an *.doc file with M$ word from a win 2000 client, type 'smbstatus' on
Server, it shows that the file is opend with a DENT-WRITE mode, and when I
open the same file from another win 2000 client, I can only open it with
READONLY mode, and can't delete the file too.

Everything is OK.

But when I open the same file from the Server itself, it can't be aware of
the existing DENY_WRITE, I can write it and remove it.

And how about open the same file from a NFS client? I don't know , but I
think there will be the same problem.

What should I do to prevent it?
