While trying to delete obsolete archive logs via RMAN, the tool receives ORA-15028 when trying to delete archivelog file from ASM diskgroup

 
Need to find out which instance is holding the lock on the archivelog file to allow obsoleted archivelog files to be deleted from the ASM diskgroup, thus freeing space from the diskgroup.
