Closing Open CIFS files via command line

Currently Being Moderated


I'm trying to work out a way to close down open files that are open via CIFS.

We use some of our nas storage for home drives, which hold users email system files. (lotus notes).

If we suffer any slowdowns at logon then we'll see a large number of them getting some of these notes files locked open and they need closing off by an admin before the user can get into their emails.

This is currently done via MMC and finding the open files.


Does anyone know of a way to do this from command line ??   I'd like to script up a tool to do this with a set file path rather than do each one through a gui everytime.

I've tried the lock break -f command without any success.
