SMB clients not updating when a file is uploaded via web

Question asked by konradpotocki on Oct 13, 2006
Well, the topic says it all, but I will try to explain better:

Situation:
Alfresco 1.3 on linux
Client "admin" with the repository mounted via smb (linux client)
Client "user" with the repository mounted via smb (linux client)
Client "web" logged to the web interface.

Scenario:
1. "Admin" changes a file via smb => everybody see the change
2. "User" changes a file via smb => everybody see the change
3. "Web" changes a file via web (either by uploading a new version or by the edit-in-place feature) => PROBLEM: noone sees the change until the reboot (umount/mount does NOT help!)
4. Everybody modifies the file => Funny things happen: smb users see the smb version and the web user sees the web version

I suppose there is some problem with the smb locking here. My setup seems to be correct (nothing special) and as far as I remember, I did not have such problems with Alfresco 1.2

Anyone has an idea?

Thanks.
