Locked Workspace on Shared Directory

When working with Eclipse and placing the workspace on a shared directory (i.e., the home directory on the lab computers is mounted from a shared directory), the following error may occur:

Eclipse Error Massge
Workspace is in use or cannot be created.


Disable locking in Eclipse configuration file:
  • Locate Eclipse installation directory
  • Goto subfolder configuration
  • Open config.ini in edit mode
