Cannot delete tape pool because it is used in an archive route


We created a test storage class (with -c 2) and tape pool in the Kubernetes EOSCTA instance. We deleted the storage class but when we tried to delete the tape pool we get

Cannot delete tape-pool ctaGeorgeTomPool because it is used in an archive route

although we didn’t create an archive route with the new storage class and there is only one anyway.


Hi George,

Please can you provide more information: output of cta-admin tp ls, cta-admin ar ls, cta-admin sc ls and also the CTA Frontend log message where this error is encountered? Thanks.

Hi Michael,

Apologies, I thought I have already replied here. This was resolved by dropping and re-creating the CTA DB schema.
