Multiple users are able to open the same .dgn at the same time without MicroStation recognising it as being already open - the file is NOT being flagged as read-only. Files are stored on a QNAP NAS. Any ideas?

Not all NAS devices implement a full IEEE protocol stack. Caveat emptor!

Test before you buy.

Thank you for your input.
I am aware of the limitations of the majority of NAS devices with regards to the protocol stack. However, this NAS has been in use for a number of years now and nothing has changed on it apart from firmware updates (after which there have been no issues). The problem I am reporting literally started earlier this week.
I suppose what I should have asked if there was any MicroStation PowerDraft configuration variable that would control file locking? Sorry if this is a stupid question but I know some applications do control file locking themselves.
I have the same issue.
Did you a have a solution ?
Unfortunately not yet... I have contacted QNAP support and also a MicroStation specialist friend of mine but am yet to receive a response.
If I find a solution, I will let you know.
Thanks for your reply.
In my opinion, the issue was triggered by a QNAP update.
We are considering downgrading the QNAP....
