Does samba store information on lock files in a tdb somewhere? If we
have a process that has a lock on a file that we can't get samba to
surrender, is there a recommended way of forcing samba to release it?
For example, a process on machine A has file B on server X open an
locked.. and the machine A hangs for some reason never releasing the
lock on file B. Is there a recommended way to tell samba its okay to
release any lock on it?
