Other Administrators are holding device wide commit locks

Hi Guys,


i have actually the problem that i cant do any commit, there are two pending commits and if i try to commit the following message appearing:


"Error Other Administrators are holding device wide commit locks". 


Even when im logged in as the administrator who did the commit the same message appears. The Administratoraccounts are supperusers.

You can check to see the admins who have a commit lock via the UI or CLI:


> show commit-locks

Commit locks are designed to prevent any other logged in admins (even other superusers) from doing a commit until the lock is released. If you're a superuser, and you see commit locks from the CLI command above, you can clear them with: 


> request commit-lock remove 

For the GUI version, check this document:

Commit locks are a good way to ensure there is no administrator poisoning. Meaning if one makes a change and antoehr makes a change, they could  accidentally break or revert the first admins changes.
