Hello everyone! I am having some trouble with a piece of software that is windows native. It installs on several windows machines then and can externaly access a database which i decided to put on a computer running OpenSuSe 11.1. The problem im having is that linux is only allowing one client to use the database at a time. Ive tried having each client use different and the same accounts. Ive done chmod -R 777 and still it will not let more than one person on. Any help would be apreciated.
Need more input, #5.
What kind of server? What ports should be opened?
Who built the server? You, or did you download and install it?
Provide a few more details and I’ll bet it’s probably just a config setting. Maybe the database is configured to only let one person access at a time. (Or maybe it locks the entire database, instead of just the small part being accessed.)
I think some more info would help isolate the issue.
The database on the Suse box - what exactly is it and how are the connections from the clients being made?
The clients themselves, they are a windows only app? Are they connecting via ODBC or the MySQL Connector, etc.?
The Server is just a gateway slimline computer I installed SuSe on and the database is being shared over a LAN with samba. The database is writen by the software itself, I do not know what kind or type it is.

Try adding the following parameter to the database share definition
oplocks = No level2 oplocks = No
These are enabled by default but database shares usually perform much better
when they are disabled. See the writeup in:
particularly the section: “Multiuser Databases”

anyone else think it would be a FINE IDEA to find every single
instance of that on the entire internet and ERASE it!!!
i just have to believe it was FIRST put on the net by someone from the
M$ FUD team…
