I have a volume that used to be protected that I'd like to remove.
The destination volume was deleted first unfortunately so ONTAP still sees a protection relationship.
So far I've attempted using the "snapmirror release" "snapmirror delete" commands but they failed.
I have also attempted to use the "volume delete" command which also failed.
The message that I get back is that the destination volume is offline.
How can I remove this unused volumes?

See if there is a snapshot in that volume related to SnapMirror. Sometimes deleting that works. I don't know why, but it does.

Try using the -force true when performing the offline/delete command for that volume.
Yep, it still had a snap that had to be deleted first.
I re-initialized the protection and then removed everything from the source volume and then cleaned up the destination volume.
Thanks for the help! It is really appreciated.
