Hi,
i've a project to deploy an alfresco server in order to :
- Replace windows file server
- Offer some little website for some project
- Integrate document lifecyle (management, archiving,…)
With linux / windows /office /openoffice…. clients, a real paradise for sysadmin :-)

So after long search on the internet : alfresco is the product.

Today i've installed alfresco in test environment and i identified some problem about usage of CIFS (which is mandatory for me).

In branch 4.2.X of alfresco community there is a annoying bug of lock (which seems to exist also in very old alfresco version community/enterprise).
WHen you edit a document (word / excel…) this one is locked, not modifiable until you restart alfresco service.
There is a case open on JIRA : https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/ALF-17651

With version 4.0.x this bug seems not to exist.

Here my questions :
CIFS is it stable under branch 4.0.x?
Someone encounter some problem with CIFS?
Is it some problem with hundred simultaneous user?


Thanks for information :)
