Problem:

List all open files on a NSS volume residing on an OES-Linux server.

Solution:

Open a console prompt and type:

ncpcon files list v=<volume name>

This will list all open files by all connections on the server. Useful if you need to find who is using a file that has a space in its name, as ncpcon does not seem to accept filenames with spaces.

Example:

ncpcon files list v=data

... Executing " files list v=data"
Connection  User Name                   Open File Count
8         .CN=user1h.OU=OU.O=O.T=T. 1
        /media/nss/DATA/PUBLIC/clntrust.exe
12         .CN=user2.OU=OU.O=O.T=T. 1
        /media/nss/DATA/PUBLIC/clntrust.exe
26         .CN=user3.OU=OU.O=O.T=T.  3
