    Locked file? Last time I was seeing this with IBM upgrades was because some files were renaming locked... such as here (I know it is a different error but the workaround should be similar).

    Never seen your exact error but never did this exact upgrade either.

    Please double check the version of IBM Installation Manager.
    I think that you are probably trying to go to 1.3, so I'm a bit confused by the details that you provided.

    Accepted Solution

    thanks for your comments. Yes I was trying to go to 1.3
    I tried downloading those fixes and try to patch it but every time I got the same error.
    Also I did not want to uninstall the existing 1.1.1 as that would have meant I would have to uninstall
    all the products I had earlier installed with it. So it was bit of a catch 22
    Anyway I just gave a shot of installing fresh without uninstalling the earlier one and surprisingly
    it worked !! Should have given it a shot much earlier. Anyway maybe this can help someone else struggling with similar issues. The real fix is though to fix the upgrade process to higher versions of IIM which fails miserably. Anyway for now I am ok and would like to close this issue.
