I work for a small publishing company whose production path includes =20
Linux, Windows and Macs. We are looking for an eventual replacement for =20
Samba and NFS. OpenAfs is our first choice. I have setup an Afs server =20
and several Linux, Windows-98 and Xp clients. Afs seems to do the job =20
nicely except for one major "gotcha." We cannot get file locking to =20
work from the Windows clients. Apparently, this has been a =20
long-standing issue. My question is "When, if ever, will this be fixed?"
