Under certain conditions, the deletion of non-synchable objects may unexpectedly sync.


Sync may either fail (if the object does not exist on the other end) or succeed with unexpected results (the deletion of the object).


This is known to happen for the association between route domains and VLANs. It only happens for incremental sync, not full load.


Perform a full load sync. To do this, either temporarily set the device group's full-load-on-sync flag to true, or use the 'Overwrite Configuration' checkbox in the GUI when performing the sync operation.

Fix Information

Under certain conditions, the deletion of non-synchable objects would unexpectedly sync. This no longer happens.
