Error message on 6509

I keep getting a couple different error messages on my 6509 and I'm not sure what they are or if this is a potential serious issue.  If anyone has any idea what is going on and how to resolve the issue I would appreciate it.

Error message on 6509

Hi Anthony,

Error Message %SW_VLAN-4-VTP_SEM_BUSY: VTP semaphore is unavailable for function %s.

Semaphore locked by %s

Explanation The VTP database is currently locked by another task and is not available. Users should

retry the operation sometime later.

Recommended Action Save a copy of the vlan.dat file that includes the invalid VLAN ID to help

investigate the condition. Copy the message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log.

Enter the show vtp status and the show vlan commands to gather data that may help identify the

cause of the error. Research and attempt to resolve the issue using the tools and utilities provided at

http://www.cisco.com/tac. With some messages, these tools and utilities will supply clarifying

information. Search for resolved software issues using the Bug Toolkit at

http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/Support/Bugtool/launch_bugtool.pl. If you still require assistance,

open a case with the Technical Assistance Center via the Internet at

http://tools.cisco.com/ServiceRequestTool/create, or contact your Cisco technical support

representative and provide the representative with the information that you have gathered. Attach

the following information to your case in nonzipped, plain-text (.txt) format: the output of the show

logging and show tech-support commands and your pertinent troubleshooting logs.

Regards
