Does Advance File & Print Server offer Record Locking

Does Advance File & Print Server offer Record Locking

Does anybody know the answer to this question.

What I want to do is keep Windows data files on the SCO Unix server and
have multiple users access these files with record locking protecting
the file integrety.

1. Advanced Print & File Server co-existing with NT Servers ?

Here is a posting from a friend who does not yet have access to the
newsgroups :-(

When configuring Advanced Print and File Server (on 3.2v5.0.2 Enterprise
with full Internet Faststart multi-user license),
your choices are:
1. Primary Server
2. Backup Server

This worked well until Headquarters mandated that all NT servers
follow standards for server names and domain names.
Additionally, there is only one domain per site.

The SCO system and the NT network are administered seperately.
When setting up APFS as a backup controller, only the NT folks
could administer accounts.  When APFS was set up as a primary
controller, it took over as the primary allowing only the SCO folks
to adminster all domain accounts.  It was stated that this is not
a unique situation, but in a "normal NT" (oxymoron) network you
work around this by setting up a system as a server that is neither
a PDC or the BDC.

I modified APFS by reverting to the former domain name.

Is there a way to add APFS to the existing domain?

Will this fix require me to re-enter users and shares?

We have researched this in the IT scripts (latest version), but there
is only like 5 entries under APFS  :-()

Thanks for your assistance.
