Unable to lock file C:\Sandbox\zzz\.jazz5\.jazzlock null

Hi

I found the following error during a JBE build. Before that, I did a "scm status" from the command line. However, I still get the error after closing the command line windows. Any idea why and how to fix this?

Thanks
Jirong

This appears to be the same issue (or closely related) as discussed in this thread:
https://jazz.net/forum/questions/75155/unable-to-lock-file-jazz5jazzlock-null

One reason for the message could be an open file handle on the file in question.  There are several third party tools for Windows OS which will display open file handles on a file, for example 'Handle' or 'Process Explorer'.  Typically, stopping the process which is holding the handle will allow a file to be updated.

Regards,

John
