NFS With Samba
ServerA has an NFS Mount to ServerB at mount point /home/qlogger/logs
I can cd to /home/qlogger/logs on ServerA and see the contents as they would be on ServerB (NFS Working with proper permissions rw).
I have a samba share setup on ServerA to share the NFS Mounted Directory (/home/qlogger/logs)
I connect with my windows host and am able to view the files and folders. I can create folders just fine however; when I go to copy a file from the windows machine to the samba share I receive a message saying the file is locked.
I have disabled oplocks in samba and the problem still persists.
Please and thank you!

hi and welcome.
Yes, I have a suggestion: Donīt re-export a network-filesystem
That is just asking for trouble.
It is a fragile setup: you depend on 2 servers to work, not just one
And it introduces unneeded complexity, as you already experience
a) mount the nfs from windows (can be done, althought the windows Services for Unix SFU is a bit odd, imho)
b) This is about logs? Standard logs maybe?
Then I would go for rsyslog and phplogconYou must always face the curtain with a bow.
