Is it possible to disable oplocks in SMB2? I know you can disable SMB2 in the server entirely by editing the registry and running the commands for Win7, but once it's disabled, can you actually also disable opslock?

We run an old software that is built around SMB1 architecture, with XP and 2003 we had to disable oplocks in order to avoid network hangs when using the software; but now we need to do the same with Win7 and 2008.

My reference is this white paper:
