New member here so be gentle. I've tried search with no luck.
Has anyone ever seen the message:
"Cannot finish the run. The test instance is locked by other user".
Result in this case was the run and all results were completely lost.
Re: Warning Message
This means the test object is open by some one else (or another script). You may have either some one or a script accessing them at the same time, or a session accessed it exited without closing the session (like machine restart). Do you update the test in test plan area during the execution(if you change anything in the test steps, it allows you to update it)?
I used to have a LOT of object lock errors with QC defect tracking system. If some one just selected the defect and either stay there or restarted the machine, we could not update the defect at all. In older versions only option was waiting 24 hours or restart the server ...
Hope this helps.
