Error description

  • When a Project with an empty Folder is restored in to a DOORS
    Database, any attempt to change the properties of the project
    will lead to an error 'Invalid lock Request- Data already
    locked' error.
    
    This can be reproduced only with projects with an empty folder
    within them. For example , issue can be reproduced with
    
    Project 1
           -? Folder 1
    
    Cannot be Reproduced with
        Project 1
              -? Folder 1
                               -? Module 1
    
    Also can be reproduced with
    
    Project 1
          -? Folder 1
          -? Folder 2
                       -? Module 2
    
    
    There are no locks visible in manage locks or through DBAdmin.
    
    The issue is no longer seen if the user opens the restored
    project and navigates through the empty folders (opening the
    empty folders) , or when the DOORS client is restarted.
    
    This issue is also reproducible in DOORS 8.3
