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?
Hey everybody, we have the same issue with our QNAP NAS. It has definitly started with the last Firmwareupdate from QNAP. I was able to reconstruct this with a spare NAS. We have also contacted the QNAP support and we are still waiting for a Response. The support had forwarded the issue to the Research Team.
We would like to Downgrade the Firmware, but we are a little bit afraid. If somebody gone this way without any Problems, please let us know.

Thank you for your input! Interestingly, the QNAP technician I am talking to is not aware of this issue...
I did not try to downgrade the QNAP firmware.
For the moment, users are trying not to open the same dgn files at the same time.
The question to ask of QNAP is whether they have changed anything about windows file sharing protocols in their latest firmware, SMB for instance (I am not an expert on these by the way, so this is a generalised suggestion!).
If they can identify specific changes in that area we can run them by the development team for more informed comment.
QNAP have released a new firmware for our NAS boxes. I am intending to upgrade to this version this weekend. I will post my results here...
Did the new firmware solve the issue ?
