    unlock locked swap file?

    conradsia Hot Shot

      I cant start a vm because the vm swap file is locked. I lost access to the storage while the vm was powered on. Anytime I have locked files I usually have to reboot, does anyone have a trick to unlocking this file? It doesnt show in lsof ... here is the vmkwarning error
