BW Selective deletion job getting struck


I am trying to do selective deletion from an Non-cumulative cube. Job is getting struck with out taking any action.

1. SM12 - Cube lock set

2. Aggregates are not deleted.

3. SM37 Log is not updated

4. SM50 Status is stangnant

Note: I managed to delete using selective deletion from few cubes earlier. For this cube i had cancelled the job once because of wrong variant entered.

Subsequently when i scheduled the selective deletion, it looks like stuck even after 2 hours.

I cancelled the job again and rescheduled.. but sadly back to the same state.

KIndly help me in suggesting how should i proceed from here.

Thanks & Regards,

  • Why are you deleting the data?

    What InfoObject or field is the selective deletion based on?

    Is the selective value included in the initialization?

    - If so, the application may not allow you to delete the initialization record.

    Please provide copies of error messages.

    This could be due to large number of records so you might need to narrow down the selective deletion.
