Hi all.Im stack on this problem.

User Foo have permisions to read the file.
User Bar have permisions to write the file.

The file is table.xls and openning is with 2003 office.

When user Foo open file then office say the file is read only.Fine.
At same time user Bar open file and office say file is read only.Bad!!

If only the user Bar open the file then the file is read/write.Fine.

Then i setup:
oplocks = no
level2 oplocks = no
locking = no

And still if user Foo open the file smbstatus show the file is locked and
DENY_WRITE and oplocks none.

I need solve this problem how to share office files for write if some
users have this file open for reading in same time.

system Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 amd64 , smb 3.5.11
