  • Monitoring Open Files

    I need to give a user the ability to check files that are open on a W2K server. Now the problem is they don't and can't have admin rights which I believe are required to perform this function.

    So I've come up with a very "pie in the sky" idea. Would it be possible or does anyone know of a product that will run on a server and output a list of open files to a HTML file which can then be published on a webserver? Yes I realise this is a bit of a dream but if they process creating the HTML file had sufficient rights it would be able to read the open files and then create the output?

    Am I dreaming or does anyone else think this may be possible? Alternatively does anyone have a solution that will allow this non-admin user to view open files?

    Thanks

    Ok, so thinking about it I could use net file on the server. However it cuts some of the file path out of the middle so does anyone know of a similar program that will show the entire path?

    Thanks

      Try:

      You may have to run this as a scheduled job on your server and output it to a file and then publish that. You have to be an admin or server operator to get a listing of open files.
