Excel locked by another user while accessing CIFS files

Question asked by adalgix on Mar 7, 2018


Randomly some user cannot open excel files accessing Alfresco via CIFS. message says "file is locked by another user" but, viewing same file accessing share website it is not locked and modifications can be done online.

I tried diabling file preview on windws clients and disabling protected view opening on excel and word, but nothing seems change.

Also triyng to access same file by different client with the same user over CIFS, file seems locked too!

So it seems to be user-related.

Alfresco version is 5.2.0 on centos 7 and postgres. Users are alfresco local users.

Thank you in advance for any help!
