> I would start with smbstatus to see what workstation/user has the file
So far I was not able to see a file locked by someone else
than the workstation/user who was reporting the problem (if any).
When I get the problem report, it's usually too late: the
user is already able to open the file again.
Most of the time when I check the system then, smbstatus
does not report this file as locked, and I find these
"Share violation on file" error in the logs.
I once had smbstatus reporting the same file a user was
reporting as not beeing able to open, and smbstatus told
me the _same_ user on the _same_ workstation had the file
locked. The user told me he had _not_ opened the file the
whole day! Go figure...
