AUC Settlement Reversal after S4 HANA migration

HAs anyone had the need to reverse an AUC to Fixed Asset Settlement or Inter/Intra company asset transfer after S4 HANA migration that was originally done before migration? We did move to New Asset Accounting with the S4 HANA migration so SAP clearly states the following. I understand their logic but business on ground can have legitimate reasons to reverse a settlement or transfer and I am trying to figure out a workaround or a manual way.

You cannot reverse the document; see long text
Message no. FAA_POST101

It is not possible to reverse the document. The error can be caused by one of the following:

Cause 1:

New Asset Accounting is active in your system. You are trying to reverse a document that was posted before you introduced new Asset Accounting.
When new Asset Accounting was introduced, essential parts of the configuration relating to the integration with the general ledger were changed. In addition, the posting logic was fundamentally changed. Reversing a transaction that was posted before the introduction of new Asset Accounting would lead to inconsistencies at the general ledger level for either the ledgers of the non-leading ledger groups or the relevant accounting principle assigned.

Cause 2:

You are trying to reverse a migrated document. This document was posted before migration to SAP Simple Finance or to SAP S/4HANA. To reduce the memory footprint in the database, among other things, you have deleted the table entries in the asset-accounting-specific original tables (for example, ANEK, ANEP) that are no longer updated after the introduction of table ACDOCA . This makes it no longer possible to determine if the document was posted originally by using classic asset accounting or by using new asset accounting, and which type of document is involved.
For this reason, it is no longer possible to reverse the document.

System Response
The system rejects this posting.

Post a backed out posting document manually instead.
