we struggeled now for several months but we couldn't manage to get this scenario working:
Server: Samba 3.3.8. (RHEL 5.5)
connected to Active Directory via Winbind
Something seems to be wrong with the opLocks: as soon as we try to make any Samba share offline available, it fails.
Client error: process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process
Server error: oplock break failed for file ...
As far as I understand this, oplocks are enabled by default on Vista or Win7 clients. On the server we enabled oplocks in smb.conf
oplocks = yes
level2 oplocks = yes
kernel oplocks = no
Does anyone use (Samba-) offline folder on win7 clients without any errors ?
