Thanks Bob,
Well,let me clear you that we want to restrict client users of tortoisesvn server to steal the lock.Besides that administrator should have all the rights to steal/break any of the client user lock.

I hope you are getting my point.
I have written the below script provided that 'ashwanisingh' is the name of the administrator:-

:: Set all parameters. Even though most are not used, in case you want to add
:: changes that allow, for example, editing of the author or addition of log messages.
set repository=%1
set rev_path=%2
set userName=%3

:: If a lock exists and is owned by a different person, don't allow it
:: to be stolen (e.g., with 'svn lock --force ...').

::>> What the below line is doing..plz tell me.

FOR /F "delims=: tokens=1*" %%a IN ('svnlook lock "%repository%" "%rev_path%"') DO if %%a==Owner (set LOCK_OWNER=%%b)

:: If we get no result from svnlook, there's no lock, allow the lock to
:: happen:
if "%LOCK_OWNER%"=="" (
exit /b 0

:: If the person locking matches the lock's owner, allow the lock to
:: happen:

::>>Is the below userName variable contains something when user fires the command?

if "%LOCK_OWNER%" = "userName" (
exit /b 0
if "%LOCK_OWNER%" = "ashwanisingh" (
exit /b 0

::>>What the below lines are doing???

:: Otherwise, we've got an owner mismatch, so return failure:
echo "Error: %rev_path% already locked by %LOCK_OWNER%." >&2
exit /b 1

The above scipt partly solves our problem.That this script is blocking each and every user from stealing the lock
including the admin.

I have included my queries in the script.I am very grateful to you if you explain the above script line by line because i am not able to understand.

Thanks In Advance.
