We have a Cent OS server running Samba which is acting as our primary domain controller and network share. We have three endpoints running Vista Business. When the network was installed a few months back everything was fine, however now we have hit a serious problem.
When opening files on the network drive, we are able to open, edit and save the files. However if someone tries to re-open the same file we are getting the error file is currently in use. This happens with Word, Excel, Access, Publisher, Works, PDF. Text files are not affected, nor are any of the files which are saved on the user's roaming profile. To solve the problem all the endpoints must be re-booted then everything returns to normal. This is happening on all endpoints regardless which one opened or accessed the file.
I read a few threads on Google which didn't really help. One suggested the user profile was corrupt and that I should create a new one. I tried this but it was not the issue.
Any suggesting on testing / finding the fault?
