ipfilter: Not owner of the current transaction

Hello,

I am connected to a HP Storageworks 4/8 SAN switch, I am trying to delete policy with the command ipfilter.
when I run the command: ipfilter - delete
I get the error:
"Not owner of the current transaction"

The serial cable connection is

What do I do?

Re: ipfilter: Not owner of the current transaction

Hi,
this is from the command reference manual about ipfilter:

"The active policy must be the default policy or one of the policies in the defined configuration. Only the active policies are enforced. All of the ipfilter options except --show and --transabort, create a transaction owned by the management session initiating the commands.
An open transaction prevents other transactions from being created on different management sessions. The --create, --clone, --delete, --addrule, and --delrule operands modify policies in memory buffer, while operands, --save and --activate commit policies to the persistent configuration. The operands, --save and --activate, implicitly end the transaction if all policy changes are committed. The operand --transabort explicitly ends an open transaction and aborts policy changes in memory buffer. Closing the management session that owns the transaction also aborts policy changes and closes the transaction."

Sounds like some "other" session has some pending transactions. Are there any other active telnet/ssh connections to this switch? Regards,
Stephen

Re: ipfilter: Not owner of the current transaction

Hi,

I dont have other connection active.

I execute ipfilter --transabort.

I have no access from another device.

Policy was implemented incorrectly and has lost access to the switch.

How i can to close other connection ?

Thanks,
Jesus
