Changing a depot from exclusive file locking to exclusive file non-locking and vice versa.
QUESTION:
How do you change a depot from exclusive file locking enabled to exclusive file locking disabled and vice versa?

ANSWER:
Execute 'accurev show depots -fx' to determine weather or not the depot has exclusive file locking enabled or disabled.

# accurev show depots -fx
<AcResponse
Command="show depots">
<Element
Number="2"
Name="depot name"
Slice="2"
exclusiveLocking="false"
case="insensitive"
locWidth="128">
</Element>
</AcResponse>

From the above output, look at the line:

exclusiveLocking="false"

If exclusiveLocking equals false, the depot exclusive file locking is not enabled.

To enable the file locking execute the command 'accurev chdepot -p <depot name> -ke':

# accurev chdepot -p <depot name> -ke
Changed exclusive locking for depot <depot name>.

# accurev show depots -fx
<AcResponse
Command="show depots">
<Element
Number="2"
Name="depot name"
Slice="2"
exclusiveLocking="true"
case="insensitive"
locWidth="128">
</Element>
</AcResponse>

The exclusiveLocking is now equal to true which indicates file locking is enabled.

To disable file locking, execute the command 'accurev chdepot -p <depot name> -kd'

# accurev chdepot -p <depot name> -kd
Changed exclusive locking for depot <depot name> .

# accurev show depots -fx
<AcResponse
Command="show depots">
<Element
Number="2"
Name="depot name"
Slice="2"
exclusiveLocking="false"
case="insensitive"
locWidth="128">
</Element>
</AcResponse>
