NETCONF error: Locked session
Your session is locked, and you see an error message like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <rpc-reply xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:netconf:base:1.0" message-id="101"> <rpc-error> <error-type>protocol</error-type> <error-tag>lock-denied</error-tag> <error-severity>error</error-severity> <error-message>Access to the requested lock is denied because the lock is currently held by another entity</error-message> <error-info> <session-id>session is locked by 12969</session-id> </error-info> </rpc-error> </rpc-reply> ]]>]]>
There is a lock on your NETCONF session — this may be due to another user, or you may have issued a lock in another NETCONF session. You can't make changes in this session while the
<lock> RPC is active.
<lock>RPC was already active at the start of your session then other operations should still work. Use the
<closesession>operation to clear the lock.
- If you are able to determine who holds the lock, co-ordinate with them to complete your operations.
- If you are unable to determine who holds the lock, then you may simply have to wait and try again later. For information about the duration, see RFC6241, 7.5 <lock>.
