List "in use" files on the NCP server by file instead of by connection

Hello!

I am trying to figure out a way to see which file is open on my oes server.

Currently in Remote Manager I can see which Connections there are, and if I click on Connections I can see which application files (e.g., *.EXE) are open.

Manage NCP Services > Manage Connections > Click Connection > Look at line: "Open Files"

But I would like to see the opposite, a list of files with connections to them.

This is important as we make changes to files and don't want to individually click on a multitude of Connections to see which workstation has that file open.

Looking for a GUI-friendly overview option of all files currently open. I have searched Remote Manager and iManager, but without success.

This feature was in Netware 6.5.

I am not sure where to find it ... if it exists?

    Manage NCP Services > Manage Shares > Click on the Info (i) in front of the Share/volume name > Open File Information

    That will give you a list of all the open files sorted by connection that has them open.  Then you can Ctrl-F to see instance(s) of the file in question, if they are open and whom by.   Naturally the number Ctrl-F gives is a number of hits on the term, so if it is used in both a folder and name, that count doubles up.
