Initiating Database Locks


You must be connected to SBM System Administrator via ODBC to initiate a database lock.

You can lock a database so changes cannot be made to application elements. This prevents these changes from being overwritten during promotion to this database from another environment.

To initiate a database lock:

  1. From the File menu, select Administrative Locks. The Administrative Locks dialog box opens.
  2. Click the Lock DB button. The database is marked as locked, as shown in the following figure.


  3. Click OK.
