Refreshing Data Locked by Another User

I'm trying to refresh data for a cube but someone continues to have the cube locked for editing.

Anybody know how I can 1) figure out who has it locked and 2) disconnect them so I can refresh the cube? I'm on a linux OS.

Thanks!

Check with your linux admin; you can't do it using SAS tools.

What if I could see who the last person was to read this cube using the metadata?

This may or may not be the correct forum section for this, but I've read an interesting article in the past about tracking usage using certain log files as source data, then analyzing using whatever SAS component suites the mood.

Hi!
Here is how we do it:
- Uses two OLAP Schemas
- The cubes metadata exists in both OLAP Schemas.
- Only one cube exists physically except when the cube is updating
- Always update the cube in the none default OLAP Schema
- Swap/change the updated cube into the default OLAP Schema with the current
- Remove the cube physical in the none default OLAP Schema
