I had a spatial db connection open in arcmap. While exporting to SDE with a console app I get an error in the console:
Lock request conflicts with an established lock [DBO].
Does this just mean someone is using the same ArcSDE connection or is it the feature dataset?
Of course when I closed arcmap, and fired the console app again, my feature class exported to ArcSDE successfully.
Can I kill any locks programmatically if I am DBO (when other users are using the same FD)?
If that's not smart, how can I avoid this lock?
How does the GIS community deal with this issue, wait till all users are off and run it at 2am?
The console app will become a batch process updating FCs on a regular basis.
