"lock break" command responds defferently from older version did



I've just upgraded Data ONTAP 8.0P6 to 8.0.1P3,

and "lock break" command has changed its response to displays a warning to terminate CIFS first.

Is it possible to avoid responding this warning, and to automate executing "lock break" command ?

The warning is as follows:

     Warning: The CIFS protocol or the affected CIFS sessions must be terminated  before issuing the command.
     Do you want to continue{y|n}

Thank you in advance.



I have a customer asking about the same issue.  Hopefully kicking the dust off of this will help generate more responses.  If I find info outside of this thread I will post it here. 




Any news on this? I'm wary about this new warning... Will it terminate just the CIFS session, or CIFS protocol itself?
