(new thread, same environment)
Clients get thrown out of their software from time to time because of
issues with some ISAM db files (afai understand).
They access customer-related files and some DAT-file gets locked by the
I tried to exclude that specific filename from locking:
veto oplock files = /BL6F.DAT/
Unfortunately that wasn't enough.
I now set for that share:
level2 oplocks = No
oplocks = No
and wait for feedback if that happens again.
* I assume the client has to reconnect, "killall -HUP" seems not to
change that behavior for existing connections?
* Is there a recommended best practice to find the correct level of
locking for a share? What to disable first ... etc ?
* I run loglevel 3 and increased log file size to maybe catch such a
dropped connection issue.
