Can't delete completed jobs

Do you know what could cause this error?
Thanks and best regards

Hi @rotaugenlaubfrosch, sorry for the delay.

That’s probably by design and the result of the underlying scheduler. LSF probably won’t let you delete a job that’s completed. I think delete is semantically more like stop and you can’t stop something that isn’t running anymore. But everyone uses the word delete so here we are.

Here’s the output I just got for the same thing for Torque/MOAB over PBSPro.
