It's part of disabling access to the share.

Yes we have many other shares on this box, so that is a non-starter. One option we are considering is moving the files to a dedicated server where the full control issue goes away.

How would we close the open files?

Yes, that is correct. We currently disconnect any open files on the share. I believe this was done to prevent users from using already open files while changes were being done. These files aren't written to by the users, only read by the application.

Sounds interesting. What will this do to the files that the users have open on the share? Will they be able to continue using them? Will I be able to replace the files they had open?

Or find a technical solution that satisfies the speed, security, and labor requirements. :)

Every minute of downtime is a minute the application is inaccessible to the company. This has financial implications. They say they can't set it lower due to the excessive logging.

The infrastructure team doesn't want to be available every time we do an update, but they do want reduce our privileges. Their proposed method has us dropping a file in a folder and then waiting for a script that checks the folder every five minutes to detect the file and perform the required work. The method works, but the five minute delay is undesirable.
