Version 10.6.1 on Oracle 188.8.131.52
My python script failed due to schema locking error. I tried to view the locks but I got the error:
"Locks error Failed to process XML data, possibly due to data corruption"
I looked at the sde.table_locks table and 2896 tables are locked. I looked at our development server and no tables are locked. The XML corruption really concerns me. Where is this file and can it be fixed?
I would NOT modify / edit / etc. any XML file that you find. It could cause more corruption of the Enterprise Geodatabase that may not be recoverable.
Are you connecting as the SDE user when looking at the locks?
Are there any other issues in the GDB currently?
This may be best to contact technical support and work with an analyst.
