wierd file locking issue with samba
I am hoping this rings a bell with someone and there is an easy solution.
I am running samba on RHE 5 and have a strange file locking problem. I am running a BDE database app and every time two users try and open the program they get an error that says the paradox.lck file is already in use access denied.
I have turn oplocks off on both the server and individual client machines and this still happens. The weird thing is that if two users are logged on with the same user name then the program works fine. This locking issue shows up for other files as well.
In other words if we have two computers logged on to samba as the same user (ie "staff") every thing is fine for those two computers. However if you attempt to access the database from the user "Staff" and "joeUser" then you get the error.
I don't have my smb.conf file here and will post it later. I was just curious if this rings a bell with anyone.
The other thing is I have samba set up as a domain controller but was having so many issues getting machine accounts working I gave up and am using it by just connecting to the shares from a workgroup and just mapping to them on the clients.
This was sort of a pilot for me to get some of my networks off microsoft and I don't have a great deal of experience with Linux. So far its not been going so well. Any help is a appreciated.
Its not a database problem
This was a straight copy from another system. It isn't a database problem and i've been through the documentation.
