Hi hope this is right place for this query ..
I recently installed the latest version of TeamCity and after changing the user the service was running at .. I got an IO Exception on the buildserver.lck file .. after resolving the user permissions issue .. I tried removing the buildserver.lck file but was still stuck in maintenance mode .. I've managed to backup the database and now restore it to SQL server ... ( all seemed to go ok .. ) but I'm still stuck in matainence mode with the same error .. I completely cleared the system dir ( as per the instructions re the 'connecting to an external database') but I'm still getting the io error on the buildserver.lck file ...
PS .. the teamcirty-server.log does not contain a maintenance token!
Where is this 'maintenance mode' state stored? How can I break out of maintenance mode?
