BEA-141281 unable to get file lock

./ soa_server1
SOA Managed Server wouldn't start with this error:

BEA-141281 unable to get file lock, will retry

cd $MW_HOME/user_projects/domains/soa_domain/servers/soa_server1/tmp
rm *.lok

Retry command
./ soa_server1

If "BEA-141281" appears after "BEA-14107", it will mean the box has more than 1 server instances starting up simultaneously.

Thanks - that solution worked for OSB server too. Nice to know the location and name of the file to remove.

Thanks again!
