JSI Tip 0130 - Is there a delay when saving documents to a Server Share?

If your clients' experience delay when saving a document to a server share, it may be because the client is ignoring the server's oplocks break request. If this is pervasive over many clients, disable opportunistic locking on the server by editing:


Add Value EnableOplocks as a REG_DWORD. Set it to 0.

You will need to reboot your server for this change to take effect.
