File locking on 2003 Server Share
Posted on 2006-04-05
I am wondering if there is a way on 2003 server to share a directory, but once someone opens the application to lock the files so that another user can not open them until the first user exist the application.
The situation is I am setting up an old dos application that is single user, I however need different people to access the program throughout the day so i want it to be on the server, they do not need to be in it at the same time. If some one is in the program and someone else tries to get in, if the file was locked it would not be able to be opened and the second user would just get an error and try again later.
I don't know if this is possible or not, I know you can with novell.
