How to delete files

Probably it is a silly question, but I can't delete files from disk0: .

The platform is an old GSR 12k running IOS XR 4.2.1. I have a bunch of config file on disk0:/config and I'd to delete some of them. But I can't.

This is what happens:

 

RP/0/1/CPU0:PE2-3#delete disk0:/config/test.cfg
Mon Jul 13 13:31:47.576 UTC
 Attempting to delete the config related files, the operation will be aborted.

 

I even tried entering as admin, but nothing changed. 

Any hint ?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Normally the /config directory is used for the config DB, hence why we disallow deleting files.

Try 'run rm /disk0:/config/test.cfg'

 

Thanks,
