Dear folks:

  I have the problem where MS programs cannot do
oplocks correctly 
and I have been told to turn off oplocks on the linux
samba server.   The problem does not go away when I
put these lines in smb.conf:

   oplocks = no
   kernel oplocks = no
   level2 oplocks = no

What am I missing, please?

/usr/local/samba/bin/testparm | grep -i lock  

	kernel oplocks = No
	lock spin count = 3
	lock spin time = 10
	oplock break wait time = 0
	lock dir = /usr/local/samba/var/locks
	pid directory = /usr/local/samba/var/locks
	block size = 1024
	veto oplock files = 
	blocking locks = Yes
	fake oplocks = No
	locking = Yes
	oplocks = No
	level2 oplocks = No
	oplock contention limit = 2
	posix locking = Yes
	strict locking = No
