Contact support and ask about "patch-101597". Issue is solved in 7.0.1.5 but for any below you can use this patch.

SUMMARY

This patch addresses the issue where one user closes an Excel file and a

different user will not be able to open the file because the file is still

opened by the first user. This problem persists after the Microsoft KB 942146

has been appiled to the client.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942146

(Windows XP KB 812937 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942146)

RESOLVED ISSUES

* Race condition where a file close and an oplock break response was causing

  the software to sometimes miss closing a file.  This seems to happen

mostly with Excel file closes.

CHANGED FILES

* /usr/likewise/lib/lwio-driver/srv.so

  (MD5 = 9db346b3eab63f66cb8640c79db6d9c5)

I have combined a few of the previously mentioned into one that works well for me.

isi_for_array isi smb openfiles list --verbose | grep -A3 "%filename%"

I am constantly unlocking locked files due to an error we are unable to narrow down. I prefer the following:

isi_for_array  "isi smb openfiles list --verbose" |grep -B3 -A3 (Username)

If Users are behind a firewall, check the keepalive / keepidle times of the tcp settings on client / firewall and cluster. Sometimes a firewall closes the tcp-session without correctly informing client and server.
