Issue with scratch symlink

I’m also unable to remove the scratch.o directory. There is a symbolic link owned by root inside the folder which make the removal impossible.

[strassp6@login1 scratch.o]$ ls -l
total 1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 37 18. Jun 15:28 strassp6 → /srv/beegfs/scratch/users/s/strassp6/
[strassp6@login1 scratch.o]$


here is what I did as yourself:

[strassp6@master ~]$ cd scratch.o
[strassp6@master scratch.o]$ rm strassp6
[strassp6@master scratch.o]$ cd ..
[strassp6@master ~]$ rmdir scratch.o


Thanks a lot.
