    I have 3 servers in three different locations.
    when a user opens the file in location A, that file is locko only server (
    A, B, C ) or servers A?

    DFS does not "distribute" file locks - so locking a file on a link target
    hosted on server A will not automatically lock its replicas on servers B and
    If you require this sort of functionality, you would need to use a third
    party product, such as for example DFS File Locking from Peer Software
    available at

    It's quite hilarious that you need 3rd party software to do this. I really hoped Windows Server 2008 fixed this.
