I have setup DFSR in 2 of my file servers running Windows 2003 Server R2, each server is in a different site.  I would like to know how to setup a rule or message to pop up when a user tries to open up a file that is currently being used or edited or viewed by another user, to say that the file is currently in use it will be only in a "Read Only" state.

In my past experience there is no way to do this if they are opening the file up in 2 different locations.  I worked with Microsoft on this and you have to make sure that they are accessing the files only from one location or you will run into problems such as this.  DFSR was not designed to operate in such a manner.

In our case both our servers were here locally and it provided a good copy incase one of the servers failed.
