file server simply quesion


windows 2k3sp2 as files server, with a shared drive for user to access.
sometime user will come to me say 'the file is using by others, or the files is locked since opened by someone, or I can not deleted a file since it is locked'

I am wondering how do you guys to track which files are opened by certain users? any tools to share? I only know 'Net files' command, but it is hard to find a file if you have tons of lines in s dos command window.

also, if you know a file opened by one user, how to get rid off the lock file, or kick out their session?


1 Solution
From the server in question, Start > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Shared Folders > Open Files. you can then right click the file to close it. you can also use the MMC snapin from any PC and connect to the server in question to see the same information.
