    TFTP Server Locks Files


      A major annoyance to me is the fact that the Solarwinds TFTP server v10.0.0.237 maintains a lock on any file that's been downloaded via TFTP, making the modification of those files impossible without stopping and restarting the Solarwinds TFTP service.

      Here's a great test. Create a new text file in the root of your TFTP directory called "test.txt" and populate it with some text. Now download that file using the tftp client in Windows, or even from a Cisco switch/router. After the file has been successfully downloaded via TFTP try to edit the contents of "test.txt" and save your changes. I'll bet you can't. That's because the TFTP server is maintaining a lock on the file.
