You must explicitly enable the privileged delete feature on the Enterprise volume that contains the WORM files you want to delete.

About this task

The value of the -privileged-delete option determines whether privileged delete is enabled. Possible values are enabled, disabled, and permanently-disabled.


permanently-disabled is the terminal state. You cannot enable privileged delete on the volume after you set the state to permanently-disabled.
