How to unlock SDE layers?

I have an Enterprise GDB on ArcGIS Server 10.6.1 containing feature classes I own which I published on Portal for ArcGIS. Because layers are published, a lock is on these layers, in ArcGIS Pro 2.6.1, I cannot edit anything, neither rename and/or delete. I suspect the lock is caused by the Feature Service on ArcGIS Server... I am not Admiistrator.


I read some documentation about this issue:

Disable schema locking on a map service—ArcGIS Server | Documentation for ArcGIS Enterprise 

Start and stop services—ArcGIS Server | Documentation for ArcGIS Enterprise 


And a similar problem:

sde locks 


In ArcGIS Pro, how can I list the locks on my SDE layers? If the lock is due to ArcGIS Server, how can I stop the Feature Service in order to perform some edits in name and/or schema?


In my workflow, I would like to simply replace a feature layer with a new version of that feature layer and hopefully the Feature Service will point to the new feature layer...
