there's an (small) networked accounting application wich has it's files shared on a linux machine running fedora core 6 with selinux enabled and firewalled.
all is good until two or more users work in the same point (with same files), when moving from one table filed to another takes seconds.
samba version is samba-3.0.23c-2.
ports open on server:
139/tcp open netbios-ssn
445/tcp open microsoft-ds
relevant section in smb.conf:
oplocks = false
level2 oplocks = false
# kernel oplocks = false
path = /mnt/contab/driveo
writable = yes
valid users = guzu
create mask = 0777
directory mask = 0777
# ethtool eth0
Settings for eth0:
Supported ports: [ TP MII ]
Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
Advertised link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
Supports Wake-on: pumbg
Current message level: 0x00000007 (7)
Link detected: yes
clients are all windows xp sp2 with microsoft office 2003 professional installed full.
what MAY be relevant:
application is based on m$ access 97 and has one so called "runtime" installed on another directory than m$ office.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
closing this old bug report. Such issues are also mostly support cases, where one option from https://www.samba.org/samba/support/globalsupport.html for example might be a better way to get things solved.
