    Second computer opens Lightroom 6 Catalog irregardless of .lock file


      I have Lightroom 6 Installed and activated on 2 computers. My Catalog is stored on both computers and synced via our central NAS.

      After opening a Catalog on 1 computer a .lock file is created and via the sync stored on both computers. When opening the same Catalog on the other computer while it is still open on the first computer, Lightroom opens that Catalog without any warning or error.


      Can anyone explain why Lightroom allows opening the Catalog on the second computer even though the lock file is there as well?

      I seem to understand from other discussions that this is not the case with other Users who do the Catalog syncing via Dropbox.
