Can't remove workspace from DTR with shell


initially I have posted this message to the Java development forum. It might suite this forum more. Sorry.

I have tried to remove a workspace from the DTR using the command line client. The workspaces command returns

the following entries:



When I enter the command:

deleteworkspace -w "//EXMDEV/axentiv_EXAMPLES/cons/active" the following error is thrown:

Could not delete workspaceConflict [(pre||post)-condition failed: x:cannot-delet


Could anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong here?

Thank you in advance and kind regards,

Heiko Nolte

    Hi Heiko

    Deletion of a workspace is considered as an administrative action in DTR. Certain pre-conditions need to be satisfied in order to delete a workspace and one of the conditions is that a display-name should be set for the DTR repository.

    Other pre-conditions include:

    - You should have administrative privileges

    - There should be no open activities in the workspace.

    In order to set the repository display name, go to:


    (The /sysconfig/ is not shown as a member of the root. You will have to directly go to the above resource)

    Provide a display name and click on 'Set'. After this, you should be able to delete the workspace if all other pre-conditions are satisfied.
