I found a solution for MaxDB 7.7:
1) Create a DB Full-Backup to /dev/null
2) Enable Autolog
3) SnapCreator Config-File:
dbmcli -U netapp db_execute force savepoint
dbmcli -U db_execute save data quick to 'Netapp' external
4) As a local admin use xuser tool:
user -c domain\user -U netapp -u dbusername,dbpassword -d dbname -n hostname

What is the goal here, simply to delete maxdb archive logs? If so SC has a generic archive log mgmt plugin which can delete files in a directory based on retention. Idea is you want to combine this with snapvault or some form of backup so you backup the log files to cheaper secondary storage / tape and then delete on primary based on lesser retention.
Also the SC maxdb plugin does a force savepoint so this seems like double effort unless maybe you are using an older version of SC?
