Citrix PVS Manage Locks



Hi All, 


Quick question regarding Management locks on vDisks.  I need to enable Asynchronous IO on a vDisk and believe I need to release locks on the vDisk.  Would it be recommended to Mange the locks and remove them when there are steaming targets in standard read only mode?

no, not when they are actively in use as a production load. The only time I recommend force-removing locks is when a machine is in reality down or no longer in use for production by any means but the lock on the vdisk did not get removed successfully for whatever reason (e.g unexpected power off). Only in that scenario do I personally consider it ok to force-remove the lock in order to edit/delete the vdisk further.


just my 2 cents.
