    Workplace recently ditched Novell entirely in favor of running a Windows Active Directory environment. Everything is actually pretty smooth so far, but someone asked me about something I don't really know...

    In Novell there was a console which allowed an admin to check status of shared resources- specifically which users (if any) had a specific file open and in use. I'm sure there is a way to do this running 2000, but couldn't find anything in a quick search-- thought maybe someone here had the answer.

    From the desktop...

    Right-click My Computer.

    Select Manage.

    In the tool that pops up, open the branch for Shared Folders.

    You will then be able to look at which shares are available, which users are connected, and which files are being viewed.
