What do you have in 'RECOVERY20190416/GlobNative/20190505' ?

Maybe you got an immutable bit (chattr +i) on any file/folder  ?

Re: [Gluster-users] cannot remove empty directory on gluster file system

Strahil
You can also check if there is a process holding a file that was deleted there:
lsof /tier2/OPA/archive/GOFS/RECOVERY20190416/GlobNative/20190505

If it's not that one , I'm out of ideas :)

It's not recommended to delete it from the bricks , so avoid that if possible.

Best Regards,

Hi Sttrahil,

thank you for your answer.
Directory is empty and no immutable bit has been assigned to it.

[athena-login2][/tier2/OPA/archive/GOFS/RECOVERY20190416/GlobNative/20190505]> ls -la
total 8
drwxr-xr-x 2 das oclab_prod 4096 Mar 25 10:02 .
drwxr-xr-x 3 das oclab_prod 4096 Mar 25 10:02 ..

Any other idea related this issue?
Many thanks,
Mauro

Hi Strahil,

unfortunately, no process is holding file or directory.
Do you know if some other community user could help me?

Thank you,
Mauro
