I am trying to open a series of database files from FreeBSD that are hosted by a Windows NT share. I only need read-only access at this point.
For some reason though, if a file is opened by a Windows program, FreeBSD can't get read access to it if I use smbfs, but other Windows machines can and so can FreeBSD if I mount the share with Sharity instead of smbfs. I tried to find information in the mount_smbfs man page and in the smbfs source code on how to make smbfs grant me read access to an already-opened file, but I didn't find anything. Is there a way to get smbfs to grant the same access to files that Windows is using? This is FreeBSD 4.8-RC, in case it matters for this.
