The error code is isc_sys_request so I guess that the server is failing to
get an exclusive lock on something because something else already has
it. Could it be that one of w2003 friendly little "offer-you-can't-refuse"
operations is going on? (I forget the name of the thing that w2003 has
instead of SystemRestore).

Are you able to delete the .lck file(s)? Or something more obscure, like
the ip address you are supplying doesn't resolve to a valid string for
creating the .lck file?
