I am trying to delete a Feature Class in my sde database. This feature class is not used anywhere and is not attached to any MXD file. When I try to delete in ArcCatalog I get :
'Failed to delete selected object(s)'.
'Lock request conflicts with an established lock.'
'Lock by database user: 'SDE' on machine: 'chigeoapp01' (I get this 7 lines)
'Lock by database user: 'SDE' on machine: 'dg2k8esridev1' (I get this 7 lines)
How do I get rid of these locks or find out at least what is locking this Feature Class.
Do you have any published services that utilize this feature class? You've got a user named SDE on two different machines using your feature classes; not sure why you'd want him doing that. IMHO user SDE should only be used for admin purposes.
But to your initial question, you can try:
Shutting down and restarting those two machines
Shut down and restart your SDE service
Two machines:'chigeoapp01' and 'dg2k8esridev1' have "open" connections blocking thefeature class, maybe because it is used in a AGS service, opened in an mxd,...
You can free these locks (but you will close the connectons using the feature classes) this way:
- in ArcCatalog, select the connction (you will need administrative - sde - privileges)
- right button -> Administration -> Administer Geodatabase , tab "Locks"
- look for the right object and "Disconnect" the session that is locking he fc.
