Files deleted through Windows CIFS clients spontaneously reappear

Hello

 

We are facing strange issue that when users ( Windows 7, 8.1, 10 ) try delete files from NetApp CIFS shares, it delete without any error but reappear again in short time. We have tried ti create a new share with everyone full permission to test this and still we see the same issue.

 

I found one KB article to disable the cifs oplocks and i tried that too but no luck 

 

would like to check if anyone else on the forum faced this issue 

 

Data Ontapversion : 8.2.3 7 mode

 

thanks,

ragesh

seen this earlier, though I can't verify this, but disabling the "preview pane" in windows explorer seems to fix this issue. Please let me know if this works (Sounds crazy,I know :-)
