Applies to

  • Clustered Data ONTAP 9.x
  • Application : MS  Office
  • Protocol : CIFS/SMB/SMB2/SMB3

Issue

Excel file is opened in Read/Write mode for editing by USER1
Now when USER2 tries to open the same Excel file , he is allowed to open the same file in Read/Write mode.
Expectation is when USER2 opens the same file in Edit mode, error "The document is locked for editing by another user" should be received by USER2.
