Bug ID 716065: Removing a device's services fails

Last Modified: May 29, 2024

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IQ Config Mgmt Infrastructure(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
5.4.0

Opened: Apr 20, 2018

Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Attempting to remove a device's services so you can delete the device from the BIG-IQ inventory, fails.

Impact

The services cannot be removed, so the device cannot be removed.

Conditions

A custom script invokes the 'device-remove-mgmt-authority' API, providing an incorrect device reference URI. In these conditions the task performs no action, thus the services are not removed. When subsequently attempting to remove the services via the UI, the services cannot be removed.

Workaround

The existing 'device-remove-mmgt-authority' tasks must be removed by a DELETE sent to '/cm/global/tasks/device-remove-mgmt-authority'. Then the services can either be removed via the GUI, or the via the API providing the correct device reference, which must be one in the machineid-resolver, e.g.: https://localhost/mgmt/cm/system/machineid-resolver/0d4ac6b3-2d58-4e8e-a0c4-126288f6a96f
