windows file sharing question

Hello,

I have a question regarding windows file sharing.  In Windows,  when users access the  shared folders and
If  they don't close the connection proplerly what wil happen? Would it affect other users to access the folder?

Also, how do I verify some one is accesing the folder? Also, how do I check that file handler exist for the session?

Nothing. If they have a file open and just log off or, if they are remote, the file may be left in a corrupt state, depending on how they were accessing it...but if you do things like open a Word document in Word, for example,  it usually creates a temporary file for the user to work on. That file may get left behind, but the document should be OK.  I can't guarantee that nothing bad will happen to the files, but as far as other users accessing the share, that should not be an issue.

Sometimes they may get an error, that the files are still in the access.
Then you can terminate sessions here:

Thank you so much both of you.  I have few more questions.  In this Windows server, we are using VCS( Veritas Cluster Server) to do the file sharing, basically VCS will do the file sharing, How an I verify that these files are shared by cluster service or windows system administrator manually shared the file system? Thanks in advance.

yes, yes, I just explained. You don't need to know. I'm outside now. If I click the  "Manage Sessions" It would show who made the folder Shared?

Nothing will happen, except if you put a limit on how many people can access the file, then you'll have a problem
