B.1.2. Jobs and Resource Locking

A single job can contain one or many individual operations. When a job is in progress, a yellow lock appears to the left of the resources included in the job.

Objects involved in a job are locked to all other Oracle VM Manager users until the job is completed or aborted. Only a user with the same permission level on the object can unlock it. This assures that a consistent and accurate view is maintained for all users.

The state of locked objects cannot be known until the locks are cleared. The state of Oracle VM Manager is always accurately reflected by the state of objects that are not locked.
