After upgrade to RHCS 3.3z5 or RHCS 4.1 RGW Lifecycle policies have stopped processing

Solution Verified - Updated -


After upgrading to RHCS 3.3z5 or RHCS 4.1 with existing RGW lifecycle polices it will be observed that when life cycle attempts to process it will fail with "failed to acquire on" and "failed to update lc object" messages in the RGW logs. You will also be unable to list the current life cycle policies and objects will not be deleted.
