CSS 11501: The script is in use by another session

Answered Question
Sep 16th, 2007

Trying to run the synch script between two CSS's with ASR I am seeing this error message. Why does this occur? How does one fix this without rebooting the CSS?

CSS11501# commit_VipRedundConfig "local 172.22.3.5 remote 172.22.3.6"

CSS11501#

Checking available disk space on systems ...

The script is in use by another session

I have this problem too.

use the -f option to force the script to run.

Apparently it did not close correctly the last time.

Hi ggriebel,

"Previous synchronization still occurring on remote switch."

The message would occur because of the following reasons:

1. When you run the script, the software creates a lock file (config_sync_lock) in the script directory so that you cannot run the script from another session to the CSS. If the lock file exists and you run the script, the following message appears:

The script is in use by another session.

If the script terminates abnormally, the software does not remove the lock file. The next time you run the script, the above message appears. If you are certain that the script is not in use by another session, then you can use the -f argument to remove the lock file.

When you run the script with this argument, the following message appears and the script exits:

Config Sync lock file removed.

Now when you see the above message run the script again with the "-d" option, this should resove the issue.
