Two users open the same file in DFS may has a problem

Postby guest » Thu Apr 10, 2014 9:34 am

When two users try to open same excel file from two different DFS server’s folder target, it doesn't shows read only warning and the first person made the change lost the conflict during replication.

This is by design.

The file in use warning is provided by office program not operation system. That’s why two users try to open same office file from one location will show warning but not from two different location.

DFS replication conflict algorithms are last write win and first create win. That’s why the last edition version file win the conflict during replicaiton.
