Description sm_srk 2010-07-13 12:43:21 UTC
With Open Office version 3.1.1 (OOO310m19), a user can open a file present on a
shared drive through AFP in "Read-Write" mode and rest of the users on other MAC
clients if tried to open the same file they get a pop-up message specifying that
the file is already in use by first user and can be opened in "Read-only" mode. 

With Open Office version 3.2.1 (OOO320m18) apart from the first user none of the
users are able to open the file as they no longer get the option of opening it
in "Read-only" mode. Instead, they get the following error:

Error during shared access to /Volumes/afpteam/Desktop/Sample-1.odt

Expected Result: Apart from first user, other users should be able to open the
file in "Read-Only" mode

Note: All users have "Read-Write" permission on the files. This issue is seen on
all kind of OpenOffice files
