I'm working with Virtuoso 6.1.5 and having problem with technology file attachement. When I try to attach my library to different technology with ciw->tool->technology file manager -> attach, I see following error message. I've done this many times and this did not happen before... I'm not sure what the problem is.
*WARNING* dbOpenBag: Failed to lock prop bag for 'timer' in 'a' mode, please check the access mode for the data.
*WARNING* (TECH-2000000): techAttachTechFile: Unable to lock DMData database file
My library name is 'timer'.
Please let me know how to solve this problem.
It's telling you that the timer library has its data.dm file locked by another application. I suggest you do (from Linux):
clsAdminTool -ale /path/to/timer
and then look for something in the output like this:
timer/data.dm SOMEHOSTNAME SOMEUSERNAME 26712 1370872211
the SOMEHOSTNAME will tell you on which machine it is locked, and SOMEUSERNAME will tell you who has locked it. The last two numbers represent the process id of the process locking the file, and the last is an encoding of the time when that process started.
