Most likely in a library list somewhere. Bad error message on IBM's part as there is a system value to not lock libraries in a library list but you still cannot delete them.
If that is the case here, the message should read, "Library in library list of active jobs", but that is just my opinion.

Subject: Lock on Library
While attempting to delete a library from the test system last night, I received error message
CPFA030 - Object already in use.
Cause . . . . . : Cannot allocate object for reason code 1. 1 -- Object
<LIBRARY> of type *LIB in library QSYS is in use by another thread.
I performed a WRKOBJLCK on the library and could not find any locks. I searched through the remaining active jobs on the system and could not determine what had the lock.
Can anyone suggest another method to try and determine which thread would have a lock on a library?
