During the install the SURVEYOR library will be deleted and recreated. Surveyor will do this for you and it is better to let Surveyor do it than doing it manually. Before Surveyor can delete the SURVEYOR library, all locks on the SURVEYOR library and the objects in it must be resolved.

The most common problem is that there are locks on *MSGQ objects in the SURVEYOR library. Surveyor creates temporary *MSGQ objects and sometimes the AS/400 does not release the lock.

Another common problem is that someone has a lock on the SURVEYOR library, either because they are using Surveyor or they have placed the SURVEYOR library in their library list.

Here is how to check for locks before upgrading:

- WRKOBJLCK OBJ(SURVEYOR) OBJTYPE(*LIB)
- Delete all *MSGQ objects in the SURVEYOR library. Resolve any locks with the WRKOBJLCK command. By looking at the job log, try to determine if the job locking the *MSGQ object is a Surveyor job. If so it can most likely be ended.
