Excel file locking issue

baijulal

Hi.

Have a CIFS share/ shared excel sheet by 7-10 busines users. Often the file get locked and storage admin need to execute "lock break –h host –p cifs" to release the locks.

Some time this affects the unsaved data. Is there a workaround/solution to prevent from this happening? appreciate your feedbacks.

Thanks in advance

Please make sure the security style is cifs only not mixed mode.

options set to :

cifs.oplocks.enable      on
cifs.oplocks.opendelta   0

thank you,

Sometimes a Virus Scanner can be part of this issue, try to disable scanning of xls and see if this helps.
