APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • External Purge delete docs on disk operations will not delete
    documents that are cloned by other workflows. This is
    normal but situations can arise where multiple threads process
    workflows pointing to the same cloned document. Both threads
    keep the document but delete their references to it thus
    orphaning the document on disk.
    

Local fix

  • Circumvention: Run unassociated docs on disk dataSweeper to
    identify orphaned documents.
