unlock it ??

Charles,

What do you mean by 'defragment die' and 'left in a locked state'? We once had the defragment utility get stuck in an uninterruptible state and it prevented our backup scripts from creating AdvFS clones. Is your situation similar? Our only solution was to reboot.

Are you sure that no other AdvFS command (like defragment, balance etc) are currently running?

If so, you could delete the lock file "/etc/fdmns/.advfslock_"

Example: rm /etc/fdmns/.advfslock_usr_domain

This should let the command work again.
