Health indicator red: Index Processor -> Buckets - Maybe "Failed to remove summary of" ... ? but files are not present


Hi everyone,

I have a problem with an Indexer. Inside the Health Indicator (the small icon beside the username) the "Health Status of Splunkd" indicates a severe Error: "Index Processor -> Buckets".
The HealthIndicator itself doesn't provide any other help or information.
Neither the ManagementConsole, nor the Masternode does know something about this issue. Everything there is "green".

The only thing I found in the _internal regarding the problematic host(Indexer) was:
01-28-2019 xx:xx:34.770 +0100 ERROR DatabaseDirectoryManager - Failed to remove summary of bid=_internal~XXXX~XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX with cid="dma|_internal~XXXX~XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX|XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX_XX_Splunk_XX_XXX_XXXXXXXX.YYYYYYYYY" from summary manager, skipping remove.

The permissions in the folders (on the linux machine allow deleting)

Could the log entry belong to the issue? How can I clean/repair up the summary? The files aren't present any more. So of cause the files can't be deleted
Thanks for your reply.
