Close DB

Hi,

I have a splitted DB on a network. One of the user is logged on. De DB-backend has a lock-file.
Is there a way to delete this lock-file?

The lock must be present to allow more than one user to open the file.
The file should be deleted automatically once all users have closed the database.

If it does not disappear when all users are logged out then you can delete it.

Then you (or your system/network admin)  needs to kill that user's process first.
