We are running Oracle Forms 6i on OAS 9i Release 1.0.2. For some reason I cannot over-copy fmx file, because this file is locked by some user. I know for sure there is no user who might lock it, because we are just testing all 6i forms. You have several ifweb60.exe processes running on our NT server and I could not kill them. There is no chance to reboot NT server during the day (everybody is using this server for other purposes). I tried to full the system and I put fmb file in current directory from which we are taking fmx for web page. I compiled fmb file and I created fmx file in current directory. I let me do that, but when I am opening my menu through web page I still link to old version of this fmx file (I know difference between old and new versions of this file). How can I kill all these processes and over-copy fmx file without problem?
which path is your application picking the fmx file from ? Delete the fmx and put a new copy of the fmx from your pc. Once that is done , you can kill the user sessions (hopefully on test boxes ) where type != 'BACKGROUND' using alter system kill session 'sid, serial#') from v$session.
Once this is done, try connecting your application again.
Pls reboot your Oracle Application server. after rebooting system will release the locked file. Then you can do whatever you want. Because i am also facing same problems here. so what i am doing the same. Do you have any solutions regarding ifweb60.exe for kill, pls let me know
