Novel Locking Files

We are having some problems using the latest Novel and Autocad 2000.

Here is what is happening:
Deleting or renaming AutoCAD files sometimes locks the file and the only
way to release it is to restart the NetWare 5 server. Only files created
by AutoCAD are affected.

This drives the servers utilization through the roof, thus adversely
affecting performance. In addition, the parent directory of the locked
file becomes poison to any PC attempting to access it.

Any Ideas. (This also just starting doing this with version 5, it did
it with R14 and R2k.)

Thanks

Hi Kevin,

You should contact Novell direct. This almost always turns out to be a problem with the Novell Client;-(...

Hope this helps.
