BIG-IQ Central Management Console (CM) is listed as a data collection device (DCD) on the Data Collection page and reports an error when you attempt to remove it.


DCD grid page lists the local CM as a Data Collection Device.


This occurs when you change the system personality of a BIG-IQ from DCD to CM after initial setup.


After changing the system personality to a CM from a DCD, find your machine-Id at /config/f5-rest-device-id: cat /config/f5-rest-device-id That ID is used to update the device property: restcurl -d '{"properties":{"isLoggingNode":false}}' -X PATCH "/shared/resolver/device-groups/cm-esmgmt-logging-group/devices/[machineid]
