Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • Microsoft Office products such as Excel and Word
  • CIFS/SMB

Issue

  • When Microsoft Office document is opened in Read/Write mode for editing by one user, and another user attempt to open the document, the second user is allowed to open the document in Read/Write mode.
    • The expectation is when the second user opens the same file in Read/Write mode, error "The document is locked for editing by another user" should be received by the first user.
