Error

You get this error :

lfc-rm /grid/atlas/tests/file1
  /grid/atlas/tests/file1: File exists

or this

dpns-rm /dpm/in2p3.fr/home/auvergrid/tests/file1
  /dpm/in2p3.fr/home/auvergrid/tests/file1: File exists

Solution

lfc-rm and dpns-rm remove the entry in the Name Server only, but not the physical file itself.

The File exists error means that there are still physical replicas attached to the Name Server entry.

To remove both physical and logical files, you can :

  • use lcg_util
  • use rfrm (in the DPM case)

Help

If the problem still appears, contact helpdesk@ggusNOSPAMPLEASE.org (remove the NONSPAM !) specifying/giving :

  • the version of the LFC/DPM server,
  • the version of the LFC/DPM client,
  • the appropriate logs.
