I'm on a local repository. I've also looked for an error log file, but haven't been able to locate one.


Help!

I was able to find a an old reference on the ibm vaj forum that mentioned removing the busy.sav file - a zero (0) byte file size.


I did remove this file, and the problem disappeared.


Apparently, this file is used as a flag file to indicate that some processing is taking place (cleaning up the corrupted workspace?), and that, until the process is complete, further use of VAJ should be pending. (This is conjecture on my part). Once this file is removed, normal application processing continues.


I would like to suggest that mention of this solution should be added to the FAQ.
