Does this appear once or regularly?

Do you use scripted uploads or is a schema upgrade going on (as they would require the locking of tables)? Or do you use the "LockedTables" extended option?

Some further hints from the docs:

FWIW: is the original MR release of 12.0.1. and is an old build - there have been many, many fixes for 12.0.1 up to the newest EBFs... So you might also consider to update to a current EBF (which might require to update the ML server, too, I'm not sure on that).

Thanks Volker, Applied the latest EBF ( March 15 ) and it magically worked!
