Getting "Cannot complete this action" while unlocking a website RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    I was trying to copy data (document library files) from SP2007 website to SP2010 website using MS Office Groove 2007. During this operation the website got locked for some unknown reason. Now I have tried every way to unlock the website. ex:

    1. Central Admin

    2. Powershell 

    While using the following stsadm command (stsadm.exe -o setsitelock -url http://my-server.com -lock none). I am getting the "Cannot Complete this action error"

    This has become a great pain, considering I'm executing a critical operation. Any help in this regard will be appreciated.

  • Have you had a look into the Sharepoint log files? This might indicate a reason for the error.

    And have a look at the database settings for the content database you are working with. It may be full.

  • hi  this error can come because of many reason. 

    Might some part of the web site you didnt have permission. 

    any Manager Page or Site is cupperted. 

    check this article hope so it will help you/


    but most probably because of error in item like poor caml. or permission kindly check the logs.
