Check In Problem

Hello,

when I last tried to check in a PDM into the repository PowerDesigner crashed (disappeared from the screen) without any error message (something like GPF I believe). Now, when I try to check in again, I get the following message box: "

---------------------------

PowerDesigner - Confirmation

---------------------------

The document 'Data Model - Oracle - Filiale' is already

in exclusive access on your workstation.

Do you want to bypass this protection?

---------------------------

Yes   No  

---------------------------

What is the meaning of this message? I never tried to get some kind of exclusive access. Even If I had exclusive access, why should that prevent me from check in the model? How can I finish the exclusive access to the document?

If I answer "Yes" PowerDesigner crashes again. When I answer "No" nothing happens as expected.

Can anyone give some insights and help to overcome the issue?

TIA,

Chris Werner

p.s. Using PowerDesigner 16.5.0.3982

    Hi Chris,

    When you start to check-in a model, PD places a lock on the model to make sure no other user will check-in the same model at the same time.

    However, this does not explain why PD is crashing. In your instance further evaluation is needed to to determine which exception is happening and what SQL order is failing if any.

    Please open a technical support incident so that we can assist you further.

    Regards,

    Anthony

    • Hi Dan - yes - everything, including SQL server

      Oh - also, I see you were asking about more messaging re; what is going on - if using the proxy, there is a config app (pdproxyconf16). Using this, change the logging level - this will give you more info than you probably wanted.

      :-)
