View Full Version : cifs locking issue

12th March 2007, 03:18 PM
we have 4 fedora desktop pc. 2 of which are core 5 and 2 core 6. we all automatically mount a share provided by a win2k3 server and all able to mount the share.

we have identical fstab entries
// /media/public cifs rw,credentials=/home/user/samba_cred,uid=user 0 0

problem is, once somebody opens a file (in our case using openoffice) no other user can view that same file. shouldn't multiple users be able to open a single file but only one that can write to it? in windows world, it will simply tell you somebody else has opened the file would you like read access.

thanks for the help.
