I/A Series R2 Enterprise Server station fails to start. Error indicates "fatal boot - file is used by another process station VM."

Issue

I/A Series R2 Enterprise Server station fails to start.  Error indicates "fatal boot - file is used by another process station VM."

Environment

I/A Series R2 Enterprise Server

Cause

There may be multiple stations running on the server, or write protection settings on the PC may be preventing the desired operation.

Resolution

  1. Verify that only one station is running on the server (e.g. autostart).
  2. Verify that the station is not open offline when attempting to start.
  3. The Enterprise Server database and software is attempting to open, create, or write into a file as part of normal operation (e.g. config.db.lock, a properties file, etc.) and the file or directory is write protected.  Verify that all files under the Niagara directory are not set to read only or blocked for writing by the software.
