I have a samba server and a w2k server. OpLocking has been turned off on both of them. and on the workstatoins that connect to it. Yet I run a filemonitor and the files are still being locked. This is causing a major slow down of a database program which pretty much brings it to a crawl. No matter what is tried the *.tps files are constantly being locked.

What version of Samba are you using and what is the smb.conf?

If you read this page here:
http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/locking.html

It has interesting info on the exact registry entries required for oplock control in windows. What don't you try setting these to 0 to turn it off - and restart - then see if things change?

I have still be unsuccessful getting the *.tps files to not lock. The files themselves are massively slowing down the database application. I switched over to an Access database and it works a lot better than the *.tps files did.  Requesting for a refund and topic to be closed.
