Caused by: java.io.IOException: No locks available
The lockd daemon isn’t running on the NFS server. This daemon is needed to process lock requests. When it's not running, lock requests can't be processed.
The lockd daemon is needed to acquire a lock on the appian.keystore.lock file located in <APPIAN_HOME>/_admin/shared directory on the NFS server.
Restart the lockd daemon, then restart the application server.
