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


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.


ncpcon files list v=data

... Executing " files list v=data"
