File Locking on SYSVOL (Windows 2008R2) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    Please excuse me if I am in the wrong forum, and redirect me to the correct one.

    We are running Windows 2008 R2 on our server.

    If from a workstation I try to share an Excel worksheet located on SYSVOL: I fail when I try to save any modifications.

    Similarly, when I try to compile a FoxPro project located on SYSVOL, FoxPro stops at Attempting to lock.

    If I locate the worksheets/projects on any other drive on the server, there are no problems.

    Is this due to any "Restrict_Exclusive_Open rights"?

    Can i allow a user to be able to "Lock" records on files on SYSVOL?
