we still have some trouble running a MS Access-database on Samba. We now
tried it with v.2.2.6 on RH 7.3 but still we either get no acces on the
database simultanously or we run in problems with updating the database.
The problem is that we make some changes on one of the clients but the
changes are not visible to the other clients until they shut down the
database and reopen it. We tried all lock options but there appears always
one of the problems described above. If we disable oplocks in any way, only
one client can open the db.
We also tried to update the W2K-clients to SP3 because I read something
about problems with oplocks on W2K-SP2 but nothing helped. A Google search
on this problem brought up an article that MS Access has huge problems
running on Samba or any other file-server-system than Windows.
Has anyone ever get an Access-db running on more than 2 clients
simultaneously and if yes, could you please give us some helpfull hints ?
Thanks in advance.
