Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

AFP locks files by default.  With Xsan you want the cvfs to lock the files if they are in use (like when you’re putting multiple bridgehead servers in front of an Xsan volume for AFP sharing).  Therefore, you can use the AFP settings for the AFP daemon to prevent AFP from locking files.  You would do so using the following command:

serveradmin settings afp:lock_manager = no
