We have a Y2K3 file server connected to a SAN I cannot seem to delete rename or modify 3 .doc files located on the SAN.  I tried ZAP which didn't work.  The error message state the the files are in use by another user.  I also attempted to take ownership and change the permissions only to the Domain Admin and I still cannot delete the file.

oh.exe (from resource kit tools) can tell you who or which process has the files open or locked.

however, if you haven't already used oh.exe, you will have to do oh.exe +otl and reboot to enable open handle tracking (and the rebooting will probably unlock the files for you)

if the files are open via the network, you can use `net file` to list open files and see if someone has them locked through there.
C:\>net file /?
The syntax of this command is:


NET FILE
[id [/CLOSE]]
