    …is the error I’m getting when trying to delete a couple of images from my WDM server. There’s nothing pending in scheduled packages or software repository synchronization. I am trying to re-pull the image and name it the same as a currently existing package, but of course I can’t until I can delete the old one…!

    Any ideas on where else I can clear this very annoying error…?

    Try rebooting the server. Looks like there is something hanging in the DB or HServer.
    If that does not help use SQL Enterprise Manager and open the WDM database. Look for a table called COMMAND. Clear this table.

    Also, make sure your view of the jobs shows all jobs. Someone might have scheduled a job that doesn’t fit the criteria for your view, and you’re just not seeing it.

    I’d bet money its the Command table

    If you get an update orphaned in there, it’ll react like this.

    If you don’t have access to SQL Ent Client Tools, then you can download the free set from MS (wiht SQL2005 Express) or just connect via command line

    with MSDE something like this should work for you
    Start Run CMD
    osql -S localhostRapportDB -d RapportDB -U Rapport -P ThinMgmt
    ;At the prompt type this to list any entries in the command table:
    Select * from Command
    ;This should delete those entries:
    Delete from Command
    ;If error returned complaining about another table run this:
    Delete from CommandArg
    ;Now run the other delete script

    EXIT should disconnect from SQL and leave you back to command prompt

    See if this fix your issue.
