Unable to set new owner on "file". Access is denied.

My users are using romaing profiles in a Windows Server 2008 AD enviroment. Suddenly, some users start reporting that they could not access their files. In my investigation I noticed that it was happening only to some files under the My Documents folders, not all of them are inaccesible. If I try to take ownership of the file it fails with the following error message "Unable to set new owner on "file". Access is denied." Is there is any way that I could force to take ownership of those files.?

In other cases I can take ownership, open the file to edit it but when I am going to save it will not let me save any changes even when I am the owner of the file,

Any ideas?

The problem was solved by removing the attached lun to the actual server and reattaching it to the new server that is going to handle the lun.

The file is propably opened/locked.
See if it's listed in Computer Manager->Shared Folders->Open Files, and right-click the file->Close Open File
