    I keep getting the following error, what is the best way to fix it.

    Sun Sep 01 2019 10:20 am valhalla.synchro.net
    Node 0 !ERROR 2 (No such file or directory) (WinError 183) in getmsg.cpp line 438 (sbbs_t::getlastmsg) opening "c:\SBBS\data\subs\dove-deb" access=-205 info=smb_islocked c:\SBBS\data\subs\dove-deb.lock exists

    Thanks in advance

    If you've been getting the error for a while and no message base maintenance is running (e.g. smbutil, chksmb, etc.), then just delete the file c:\SBBS\data\subs\dove-deb.lock

    That sounds like something trying to do something with a sub-board or message in a sub-board when something else already has it open and locked. It would be good to know what you were doing when that error was generated. And when that happens, try to see if anything else has that same sub-board or message open.

    Worked like a charm, thanks

    we had a power loss the other day during an event, I had to fix a lot of issues, but I never saw this error before. Turns out there was a lock file for that message base, and deleting that, cleared up the issue. Thanks for the reply.
