View Full Version : Viewing open file connections on Lion Server?

Jul 11, 2011, 01:47 PM
Has anyone found a way to view open file connections with 10.7 Server app? With 10.6 Server Admin, you can view/disconnect open connections by protocol.

The only way I can see to drop these connections is by removing the share point or turning off file sharing all together. Other ideas?

Have you been able to find a way to do this yet? It is a major missing feature in Server Admin and I am surprised that Apple have not supplied any info about this. I would have thought that there would have been more people discussing this issue on the web by now but have only been able to find this one post.

You can use the UNIX lsof command from a terminal window to list open files, Not sure how you'd force them closed though, my UNIX knowledge is far too rusty to remember that level of detail.

lsof works on Leopard, I don't know for sure on Lion as I don't have it, but given that it's still BSD UNIX based I very much doubt they've removed it.

Hope that helps
