I don't know much about this but:

What is the application? Locally, on my hard drive, some apps put a lock
on a file, some don't. If you read man smb.con, locking is on by default,
but the app has to request the lock.

smbstatus should show the locked files.

I've now got as far as setting up a group to access a specific directory and contents but notice that several users can have the same file open for editing at the same time. TIA. Mike.
