Microsoft Access DB unable to open or write to a file because it is locked by another user
- ONTAP 9
- Sophos Antivirus
- Microsoft Access DB
- Access DB engine runs a process that writes the start and end date/time of a job to a log. Process is failing because it can't write end date/time due to lock on the file.
- Windows Error:
The Microsoft Access database engine cannot open or write to the file "\\netapp\netapp_test\log.ldb". It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view and write its data.
- Breaking locks and re-running process still results in the above Windows error.
