Thread: samba + Excel(2003), file locking issue?

  1. samba + Excel(2003), file locking issue?

    Using samba-3.0.10 on RedHat Enterprise 3, and client WinXP boxes with
    Office 2003. All servers and clients have synchronized clocks (ntp).

    I open an excel file from a samba shar (specifie, modify it, the *first*
    (and only first) time I save, Excel says:

    The file 'foo.xls' may have been changed by another user since you last
    saved it. In that case, what do you want:
    O Save a copy
    O Overwrite changes


    Any ideas what's going on here?
