Unable to delete cloned volume

I have snapmirrorred  volume from onprem (Ontap) to fsxn instance in AWS (Ontap) and created a clone on destination (fsxn filesystem) and is unable to delete the clone volume.

 

There is no active snapshot for the clone volume.

 

Error: command failed: Volume "clone_xxx" in Vserver "use1-fsxn-svm-xxx" is the destination or source endpoint of one or more SnapMirror relationships. Before you can delete the volume, you must delete the relationships for
which it is the destination endpoint, and release the source information for the relationships for which it is the source endpoint using "snapmirror release".

 

Have anyone experienced this?

snapmirror list-destinations doesn't show up any dependency for cloned volume.

I ran a similar test keeping CVO instance as destination and it works as expected. I feel there is something special for fsxn filesystem served as managed service.

Have you tried to delete it vi AWS Console/CLI ?

 

SnapMirror volumes must be deleted using the AWS Management Console or CLI.

If that doesn't help. Clue is also given here: Section- SVM or volume deletion
