Problem with unlocking and locking the Materials in MARA using idocs.

We are sending a inbound idoc from one cluster to the other to update the materials

If the material is locked ( MARA-MATFI=x ) before it needs to be unlock it ,update it and lock again .

If its not locked ,we just need to update it and lock the material .

When we are trying to implement this the materials are not getting locked at all times .

the update inbound idoc is being sent to 5 clusters at a time .

The same material is getting locked in some clusters and some it is not . (But the data is being updated in all the clusters )

Can you please suggest me a solution or give me an idea where the problem would be lying.

    i can´t follow you.

    you are sending an Idoc from one system to another system.

    if the Receiving Mara is locked, then you would like to unlock , update and lock it ?

    i think that´s not a good idea. There should be reason why this mara is locked !

    you have to update all possible materials and schedule a job for locked items.

      The client has a Keystone Server where alll the Master data is kept and there are 5 Production Servers .

      When ever there are any updates to the Materials they are first updated in the Keystone server .

      And with the help of a Batch Job they send inbound idocs to the 5 Production Servers.

      On the Production servers if the material in MARA that needs to be updated is locked ,it needs to be unlocked updated and locked again .

      Hope i have given u the clear idea of the scenario
