I'm running Samba on OpenSuse10.2 and have shared some drives with
Windows clients. The clients are accessing a bunch of MS Word files on
the server and we have experienced a lot of weird file locking
Sometimes MS Word will open the file as Read-Only which is creating a
bit of a headache. I would like to turn off file locking completely on
the Samba side and was wondering what I needed to add to the .conf
Is this enough?
oplocks = No
level2 oplocks = No
Also, if I turn off the file locking on Samba and not on the clients
via the registry, what kind of behaviour might I expect?
Thanks for any input.
