A message displays in the log if the system cannot complete retention processing due to an archiving failure. The message indicates the report ID or catalog ID of the problematic report or result catalog. Results and reports must be successfully archived before retention processing can remove them from the system. When necessary, you can use the skipArchive utility to override this safeguard. The utility applies a “skip archiving” flag to unwanted or problematic results or reports, so retention processing can remove them from the system on a timely basis.
The skipArchive utility is in below path
To see syntax information for the utility, go to the directory where the utility is located and enter the name of the utility followed by -?. On Windows, enter a command similar to the following example: archivereports.bat -? To skip archiving of reports and results, execute skipArchive.bat (for Windows) or skipArchive.sh (for UNIX or Linux), followed by the appropriate parameters from the table below.
