Error drop_partitions forceSplit
When I executed drop_partitions function Vertica returns an error:
ERROR 55000 ERROR 8430: Some storage containers must be split before the specified partition range can be dropped HINT: Set "forceSplit" to true to implicitly repartition the data
Command that is executed is as follows:
So forceSplit is already set to true. Table is partitioned hierarchicaly (year - month - day) and I get the error when I am trying to drop partition from inactive months/years , maybe this somehow affecting.
Almost the same error I get when using swap_partition_between_tables function.
What can cause the problem? And how can I fix it?
