Using samba-3.0.11 or 3.0.11rc1 on RH9
Win Clients are XP SP2
I have a problem with sharing an ACCESS2000 mdb file on a samba share. The
first user can open the file without any trouble. The next user (or the
same user again) has to wait a timed 4 minutes before the database opens
I have tried a number of various locking options (oplocks = no, veto
oplocks file = *\.mdb, even fake oplocks = yes) in order to improve the
situation, but to no avail.
One of the debugging messages I got was NT_STATUS_LOCK_NOT_GRANTED amongst
a number of things I did not understand.
A downgrade to 2.2.12 improved the situation immediately, the second user
has no trouble opening the file, and working with it.
I would like to use the features of samba-3.0.10 for a samba PDC which is
why I am not happy about downgrading. But the database is the main tool
for the film festival I work for, so it must work.
HAs anyone else found a solution to ACCESS2000 sharing problems.
Any help would be appreciated.
