    Problem with files sharing...


    Hi,
    I have the following problem with files sharing in Samba. My LAN server is running under RedHat 9.x with Samba 2.x. Workstations works under Win9x, WinXp. On the server an application developed in Clipper (DOS mode) is installed. When users (3 users) use the application simultaneously some conflict of sharing access to the files of the application occures. No error communicates are sent, but files corrupt. Some records saved by users disappear. Meanwhile windows applications work fine. What should I check or correct in my Samba config to overcome the problem? Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions.

    This sounds like an opportunistic locking of files, try adding the line oplocks = no in your smb.conf file.
