Default raising temp during lagering?

I have a batch lagering in a temp controlled freezer. Will any harm come if i raise the temperature to start another batch of lager for a week or 2?

It's better (faster) to leave it cold, but no it wont hurt it any.

Not enough to make me not do it. I'm all the time shuffling fermenters between 3 chest freezers and have to make the same type call.

My Oktoberfest lagered since March and I raised the temperature several times to do another lager and several ales. They all turned out great. I have one freezer so fermentation temperature control gets priority over lagering, serving and cold crashing.

That's why I started doing 10 gallon batches for my lagers. I was having those same issues...
