Deleting trust-domain fails when the ha-order traffic group contains a standby unit's IP address.


Unable to delete trust domain. The tmsh command 'delete cm trust-domain all' intermittently hangs. Pressing Ctrl + C shows: Unexpected Error: Could not reset trust-domain (error from devmgmtd): Error reading from server...' In the /var/log/ltm the system posts the message: 'err devmgmtd[7887]: 015a0000:3: -unknown- failed on -unknown-.devicegroup: 01071761:3: Cannot delete device (BIG-IPsystem.example.com) from device group (/Common/sync-failover-1) because it is used by HA order on traffic group (/Common/traffic-group-2)'.


This occurs when there is a non-local device that is used by the HA order in one of the traffic groups.


Retrying sometimes succeeds. Removing the ha-order traffic group also allows the operation to succeed.

Fix Information

Deletion of a device trust domain now completes successfully when the BIG-IP system is a member of a device trust domain configured with a traffic group high-availability order that references a device other than the local system.
