Process MRP Error: "Process is already running, cannot start another process."

(Luke J Reynolds) #1

The form says it was last run last monday, and the system monitor doesn’t show any related activity. Is there something else that could cause this error?

Kill a Task

In the system monitor check Actions - Display All task to see if it is running under another user. I think you have to be set as security manager to see all tasks.

Okay, I see something. The admin who worked here before me set up an MRP schedule which is set to next run tomorrow-- would that stop Process MRP from being run manually today?

(Ken Adams) #4

Unless that process is still running, then no. A process scheduled to run the next day will not stop you from manually running it now.

Is this in your Live system? What tasks are showing as ACTIVE?


(Luke J Reynolds) #5

Yes, this is in Live. The only tasks in Active tasks are three attempts by a user to print a report that doesn’t work and isn’t used, which doesn’t appear related to this.
