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,

Is it the wrong topic for Sun or nobody knows the answer?

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).
