I have a heterogeneous network with a R.H. Linux server running Samba 3.0.5 and various
Win clients (from Win 98 to Win XP Pro). On a Samba share I have an ISAM database (Access, FoxPro etc. like)
that is being accessed by applications running on the Win clients and by applications running in Linux.
I have disabled "opplocks" in both Win9x clients and on the Samba share.
I have "mounted" the Samba share on the Linux server so that Linux applications are "pathed"
to the share and accessing the data there.

The problem arises with locks. Files locked by the Win clients are seeing as locked by Win
clients but not by Linux and viceversa.

Any solution for this?
I have "played" with options in Samba (level2 oplocks, veto oplocks, locking,
kernel oplocks, etc.) without any improvements. One thing that I have clear is oplocks = no.

TIA
