Close opened office files


sometimes after a software crash UCS don’t unlocked some office files. In the past I rebooted always the server and the files was unlocked.

How can I unlocked office files without rebbot the server?

It is possible to unlocked the files with the Mamagement System or only with the comand line?

How is the command?

Thank you.

nice regards


the workaround you are describing to remove the lock looks like there was a process on the fileserver which locked the file. The lock was removed due to the disappeared process.
There are some commandline tools in Linux which can help to identify which process open files like “lsof” and “fuser”.
In your case I would guess that restarting Samba could help.
