Error Message "File is locked"



I have a shared file on a mounted server.
Parts of the file are protected and I've shared the file to allow multiple
users to update.

The problem occasionally arises where when someone tries to save the file,
or If I attempt to "Unshare" the file to make some updates, we get a message
that says "This file is locked. Try the command again later.".

Previously, when this occurred, I was able to have my boss open the file,
unshare it, save it, share it again and save it again and all was well. My
boss is no longer here, and now this is happening again.

I am the owner and author of the file, not the boss. Any thoughts or ideas?
