Hi All,

In Windows you can check the open files on the servers.
How and where can I check the open files in Sun Solaris?
We're using Sun and Windows with Samba.
When I open the Windows server - Opened files, it is empty.

Thanks,

You can use "lsof" to check the open files. lsof is the 3rd tool (free), you can download it for your OS version(platform) from:
http://www.sunfreeware.com/
you can also use "fuser " command to find out which process and user is using the file.
type in
man fuser
man pfiles
man lsof
to learn more details
you can also do:
ls -l /proc/*/fd | wc -l
to see the how many files are currently open .
BTW, you should post the Solaris question in:

The Solaris experts don't come to see this TA often (including me).
