I have a scenario where (on a small LAN) one computer is locking a shared file on a server so no other machine can use it. It's not the same computer every time, or the same LAN. I need to determine which computer has locked the file while it's locked to figure out why it keeps happening.
If you go to "computer management>system tools>shared folders>open files>" you can see the file is open and by what user account. However, since all workstations on the LAN are using the same log on account, this information doesn't help me. Since all workstations are maintaining an active connection to the server, netstat probably can't help either.
The file being locked is a very small text file.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
