Error analysis

The error when importing the current switch configuration into an

internal switch status buffer can occur if the read enqueue lock, which

is requested from the datatabase for consistent reading, is rejected due

to a parallel change operation on this database.

Furthermore, it could also be an internal problem preventing the request

of the required enqueue lock.

Specifically, the error situation in this case is described under 2 in

the following:

(1) A lock collision occurred when requesting the enqueue lock


This enqueue lock is currently helb by user " " with enqueue owner

ID " ".

(2) The enqueue server rejects the enqueue request for the enqueue lock

"E_ABAP_SWTSTATE" with the internal error code 8.

Check any existing enqueue server entries in the developer trace.

please let me know the if there is any better way to apply this problem

Thanks & Regards
