Linux/SAMBA server & toolbox locking problem

Hey all.

I have just upgraded my win2k server at work to a Mandake 10.0 Official server running samba/winbind. As a file server, the SW file directories are working just fine. I am having a bit of trouble with the toolbox share tho.

We are on SW2004/SP3.0. Samba is v3.0.2a. Problem is, only one user can access the toolbox at a time. I get this error from solidworks: Unable to open master database due to the following database access error: Could not lock file.

All of the directories on the server are 0775, owned by nicke:Engineering (which exist on the MSWin2k domain controller).

Any ideas why I'm having this problem? Or is this a solidworks bug that I can't do a thing about?

Except for this one problem everything else is working perfectly: sw file shares, printing, etc.

Thanks, nick e.

It sounds like an oplocks problem, but your smb.conf appears to be set correctly to allow oplocks, since that is the default.
