Sharing Violation on WFW 3.11 Network
Posted on 1997-11-21
How can i work out if the error i am getting is caused by WFW or Tracker?
I am running a WFW 3.11 Network with about 30 PCs, most of these PCs are
runnning Tracker Contact Manager 2.3. We keep the Database of Tracker files
on what we refer to as our Tracker Server (The C: drive on this has been set
up shared - full access and all PCs connect to the server using drive
letter F:), all the PCs that use Tracker have the Program files loaded onto
their hard disks and access the Tracker Server for the Database files. The
error that comes up is -
Sharing Violation on Drive F:
This error does not appear on all PCs at the same time but it appears on
some then later it will appear on others - there does not seem to be a
pattern as to which PCs get this message or even when the message appears -
i cannot force the message to come up. I have contacted Tracker Support who
have suggested the following which has not helped -
Changing all the *.exe and *.dll files in the Tracker (WINTRK) directory to
Doing a Clipfile upload then a download to try and fix the Database Index.
Running TFIX which repairs the Database files.
Ensuring that Share.exe is loaded in Autoexec.bat on each PC with the /L:100
switch (L:500 on the Server).
Has anyone else ever had these sort of problems with Tracker ?
Any ideas on how to work out if it is a Tracker or WFW problem ?
