Problem:

What is the reason for VCM commit failure with "Exclusive Lock is required" error?

Resolution:

Description:

After running VCM and resolve all unresolved difference types, why do I get the following error upon committing?



















This error occurs only if you have selected "Require exclusive lock when files are checked in" in the project properties options. If VCM is doing an operation that requires check-in, "New in Source" for example, it will require an exclusive lock in the target. In order to complete the transaction, you will need to either remove the requirement from the project properties or run VCM with "Lock target for difference" option.
