Unable to clean FlexCache relationship with following error:

cluster::*> volume flexcache origin cleanup-cache-relationship -origin-vserver svm_name -origin-volume vol_name -cache-vserver svm_name -cache-volume volume_name_cache -force

Warning: This command only needs to be run if "volume flexcache delete" fails on
         the FlexCache cluster and prompts you to run this command. The cache
         configuration will be deleted and cannot be reestablished for the
         cache relationship between origin of a FlexCache volume
         "volume_name" in Vserver "svm_name" and FlexCache volume
         "volume_name_cache" in Vserver "svm_name". Running this
         command unless guided by the "volume flexcache delete" command or
         NetApp Support can lead to unwanted outcomes.
Do you want to continue? {y|n}: y
[Job xxxx]:  Metadata cleanup job for origin of a FlexCache volume "volume_name_cache" in Vserver "svm_name" queued.
