To All ArcGIS Server 10.1 Users:

I have a file geodatabase that I have registered with ArcGIS Server so the file geodatabase does not get copied locally to the ArcGIS Server (AGS) server.  I want to update the feature class, but I am getting access denied error messages.  I made sure all mapservices hitting the file geodatabase are stopped, but I still get access denied error messages.  I then copied the file geodatabase to the C-drive of the AGS server, where I was able to edit the feature class.  I then tried to copy the updated feature class back to the file geodatabase that was the datasource for a mapservice, but I still received an access denied error.

Has anyone encountered this issue, so they would know what the problem is?

I did not think that registering a file geodatabase would put locks on the file geodatabase, only mapservices that are started would put locks on the file geodatabase feature class.

Any help or hints are greatly appreciated.
