The following error is received when attempting to delete a domain via

Unable to remove domains: Problems occurred while removing domains:
domain_bu failed: domain_bu: Unable to open file
"/var/lib/psa/dumps/DOMAIN/backup_restore.lock": No such file
or directory.
System error 2: No such file or directory
domain_bu: Unable to lock domain

Such an error occurs if the domain backup repository doesn't exist. To fix it run:

mkdir /var/lib/psa/dumps/DOMAIN
chown psaadm:psaadm /var/lib/psa/dumps/DOMAIN
chmod 750 /var/lib/psa/dumps/DOMAIN
