The following errors are observed when attempting to delete an Export queue:
sp_ctrl (alvsupu15:5438)> delete export queue queue1
cnc_delete_queue() Queue error - user/queue was not deleted; Check event_log for details.
Similar errors can also occur when deleting Capture or Post queue.
The command “delete export queue <queue_name>” requires that the queue to be deleted have no data in it otherwise the command will fail with the above error message. Wait for the messages to become 0 in that Export queue by monitoring it in sp_ctrl using “qstatus” command. Once it is 0, you can reissue the command after first stopping the reader and writer to that Export queue, namely the Export process and Read process.
The error “cnc_delete_queue() Queue error - user/queue was not deleted” can also occur when deleting Capture or Post queue if they have data in them.
