I've encountered an unusual situation and wanted to know if any of you have seen the same and resolved the issue. I am using ARIS 9.7.0 and have three object definitions identified in 'Locked items' which will not admin unlock. A message tells me the object is locked by a model, yet there are not models locked in the database.
As a result, several database operations are not possible (i.e., merging models from another db). I have tried creating a db backup and restored with no success. These objects cannot be deleted and re-created. I have tried to create another object then consolidate with the older object with no success.
I am seeing a message referring to the object being "permanently locked". Does this refer to having the object in a state for which unlocking cannot be accomplished??
