Hello Zachary,

first of all, it would be best to use *midpoint* mailing list, not 
midpoint-dev. The former has (at least I think so) much more subscribers 
than this one.

As for your specific question - I don't know. The use of SET TRANSACTION 
READ ONLY command can be turned off by setting *useReadOnlyTransactions* 
repository configuration property to false (visit 
https://wiki.evolveum.com/display/midPoint/Repository+Configuration to 
see how repository configuration is done -- although this particular 
property is not mentioned there). But I don't think this will solve all 
the issues; probably there are others problems related to the use of old 

Anyway, you can try it; and if you have any more questions, I recommend 
trying asking on midpoint mailing list.

Best regards,
Pavol Mederly
