Another PC is using KNIME with a specific knime-workspace and block any access to it, where can I find which machine is it?

Hi everyone,
in our working environment many PCs have their own KNIME installed.
As I tried today to work with KNIME in a specific workspace lying on a windows server, the startup is blocked by another user. Is there any way (in a log or in any file) to retrieve the IP of KNIME running machine on the said workspace (or in its relative .metadata)?
Best regards
Andrea

Hi @agiani99

you need to delete the .lock file which you can .metadata folder.

KNIME AP is not build for sharing a workspace between two users. So there is no way to find out who is locking the workspace. Maybe there is a file history than you can check who created the .lock file.

Hi @agiani99

maybe you can look at the filesystem who is the owner off the lock-File to identify the user who has opened the workflow.
