Problem conclusion

  • IBM Spectrum Protect Plus issues a warning in maintenance job
    log for non deleted SLA policies indicating a snapshot is being
    locked by a replication relationship.
    
    This behavior has been improved such that removal of an SLA
    policy
    that manages the replication relationship will remove the
    snapshots
    including ones that have been locked.
    

Temporary fix

  • To remove  all snapshots that pertain to a replication
    relationship,manually remove the replication relationship
    and snapshot. All snapshots will be removed once the
    expiration period arrives. Althernatively, increase the
    retention of the SLA or increase the frequency of the
    backup SLA.
