    What is the z60 table? When do records get written there?

    The z60 is the record-locking table. In v15-up, it is located in the VIR01 library.

    A lock record is written when a GUI user calls up a record in Edit mode.

    One typically sees records like this in the z60 table:


    How long the lock lasts depends on the lock period. Lock records don't automatically disappear from the z60; they may be there but in an expired state.

    In v16, util a/12 drops/creates the z60; in v17-up, clear_vir01 (run nightly) drops/creates the z60. You can do this to correct the situation immediately:

    > dlib vir01
    > util a/17/1 [for z60]

    See Article 000038415 ("Record locked by another user") in regard to viewing/deleting z60 locks.
