Cannot save or edit the Clear Lock Jobs Schedule


After updating from Everest 5 to Everest 8, you cannot save or edit the clear lock jobs schedule. It appears to be disabled. Manually clearing the inactive entries works.

  3. Choose the .sql file that you downloaded earlier
  4. Click Open
  5. The file will be opened within SQL Server Management Studio
  6. Click on the Execute button.

Confirm the Everest Demon job exists:

  1. In the Object Explorer window of SQL Server Management Studio, click on SQL Server Agent, then click Jobs.
  2. Right-click EVEREST_DEMON and select Properties.
  3. The details should display like in the screenshot below:


Additionally, please make sure that the SQL Server Agent is active and running on the Database Server.
