A follow-up on my own message. :-)
I tried a few other things yesterday.
A problem is also (like another poster said) that I don't see a difference
in rights of some directories.
With one dir word doesn't save the files and with another it does.
So I have 2 directories in problem_share :
problem_share|dir/dir1 --> word doesn't save the files (memory or disk
space msword error)
problem_share|dir/dir2 --> word saves without problem
both dirs have the same rights.
Now I tried this :
- enabled all oplocks
problem_share|dir/dir1 --> word saves the file ! but takes a long time to
finalize (it looks like word has crashed but returns after approx 30s a
problem_share|dir/dir2 --> word saves without problem (no delays)
Finally I tried this :
- enabled all oplocks and copied the files to a new directory
Till now I heard no problems. Let's see how it behaves today and next
The disk config is 4 disks in raid 5 with raid ctrl.
I described the problem with 1 problem dir but there were also other
directories with problems.
