MS Access SAN Problem

Hi!

I've encountering a very strange problem. We currently host the back end of an Access application on our server (just a bog standard Win 2003 Server box) and we are looking at moving it over onto our new SAN storage area but we are encountering a problem where the first person to login proceeds to lock out all other users.

Has anyone seen this before/have any advice on this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Is the DB location on the Unit set up to act as a standard location:

\\SomeServer\SomeFolder

Do all users have full permissions to this location?

Yes. It happens when the ldb lock file cannot be created correctly.
Users do not need full permissions to the shared folder but at least create, read, write, delete.

Yes. It seems to be a problem with permissions. Just cross-check the permissions in both folders (before and after).

Hi guys,

This DB is on a shared folder on a server, the Share Permissions are set correctly but I noted that the NTFS permissions had only the standard (Server\Users Server\Admins etc). Will the NTFS permissions affect this directly?

Yes. Share permissions are independant of NTFS permissions. The most restrictive will apply.

Yes. It is the reason of the problem. You have to set NTFS permissions correctly. Setting up permission in the "shared" tab is not enough.
