Policy server is attempting to logout session, which removes the session from the store.  The session has already been removed from the store either by another policy server serve: timeout, Policy server maintenance of the session stores or by removed by replication


Error is benign with no user impact, however there is a fix and omprovidment to the policy server with regards to session store and its operations/maintenance 


CA is recommending upgrade to at least R12.52 Sp1 Cr5 – sessions store fixes and improvements
