Access Files over SMB (mac) / File Access is locked / Small Business Server 2008 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • There is a Small Business Server 2008 which share Files to severall MAC (OSX Leopard). The macs access over SMB protocoll. After there was an access to a file from a mac, the file is locked, it can not be removed or transfered for some hours. At this moment, the file is not open at any Workstation or by any application, we have tested several times. The Rights of the files and share is approved, also an administrator can not do this actions. Are there any ideas?

    The exactly message while trying to transfer the files is:
    (german OS)
    "Die Aktion kann nicht abgeschlossen werden, da der Ordner (oder eine Datei darin) in einem anderen Programm geöffnet ist. Schliessen Sie den Ordner und wiederholen Sie den Vorgang."

    in english (free translated):
    "the action can not be completed because the folder (or a file in it) is in use by another application. Please close the folder and repeat the action"

    thanks alot for any support

  • I'm not sure how your e-mail relates specifically to Windows High Performance Server - are you seeing the SMB problem with Windows HPC Server?
