Incremental sync of the deletion of an iApp instance may fail, with the error message indicating that certain objects owned by the application are still in use. Alternatively, child objects that should have been deleted when reconfiguring an iApp instance may remain on peer devices after incremental sync has completed.


An attempt to delete an iApp may cause a sync failure. An attempt to reconfigure an iApp without a previously existing child object (pool member, etc.) may cause the object to continue to exist on peer devices.


Incremental sync of the deletion of an iApp instance. Incremental sync of deleting a child object, if the iApp implementation script creates the parent object without child objects, and then separately adds the replacement child objects.


Full load sync (either the 'Overwrite Configuration' option on the Device Management Overview page, or temporarily setting the device group to full load only), and then performing the sync operation completes successfully.

Fix Information

Incremental sync of the deletion of an iApp instance now completes successfully. Incremental sync of iApp changes, where the iApp template creates a parent object separately from child objects now syncs correctly.
