excel file "locked for editing" by either same or different user
Posted on 2009-12-28
I am in the middle of migrating a small office from Windows 2000 to Windows 2003 SBS. I have copied their main data folder over to the new server and am getting edit lock messages on the excel data files, either being locked by the same person, or a different person.
I designated the new server as a DC but with a different domain name.
The old DC is still online, but the clients having trouble are both ones logging into the new or old domain.
I almost seems like some edit lock is not getting properly released.
I have tried to disable SMB signing on the new server, in group policy but not sure it i did it in the right place. do i need to disable SMB signing on the old server too?
