I have a user profile that i cannot change the password (or anything
for that matter). The error message i get is:


Message ID . . . . . . : CPF2213 Severity . . . . . . . :
40
Message type . . . . . :
Diagnostic
Date sent . . . . . . : 01/19/09 Time sent . . . . . . :

Message . . . . : Not able to allocate user profile
XXXXXXXXXX.
Cause . . . . . : Either the user profile, the group profile related
to the
user profile, or a system object related to the user profile is
assigned to
another
job.
Recovery . . . : Use the Work with Object Lock (WRKOBJLCK) command
to
determine to which job the user profile is assigned. Try the
command again
when the user profile is
available.
Technical description . . . . . . . . : MCH2601
exception.

WRKOBLCK on the user profile gives me no jobs locking the user. I can
change the group profile for the user just fine so that doesnt look to
be locked.

I came across this a couple of months ago on a different machine and
the user had a writer job active which i ended and was able to end and
then change the user.

Anyone got any ideas ?

I also had this recently where the user had a print job at SND status
in an outq. Once i deleted the print job (it was old anyway), it
allowed me to delete the user.

Thanks for the suggestions. The user is a basic user, so no job
schedule entries. I already deleted all of the spool files from the
user and that still doesnt help.

That doesnt work, I already revoked ownership of any objects. There is
a hidden lock on this object, i just cant seem to find any way to find
it.

Could you perform an IPL then try to delete the profile again?

you could try after the system is in a restricted state first as that
doesn't take as long to come back up. The best time would probably be
just prior to or during nightly backups.

I also have the same issue, could not delete a user profile. After checking this forum and this post got an idea to check wrkactjob for the user found it and killed it, the issue is resoved.
