Issue:

The SnapMirror release operation fails when the Snapshot copy cannot be deleted.

Solution:

The Snapshot copy contains a transient tag. Use the snapshot delete command with the -ignore-owners option to remove the transient Snapshot copy.
snapshot delete -volume <volume_name> -snapshot <snapshot_name> -ignore-owners true -force true

Retry the snapmirror release command.
