Unable to delete a group

Post by mlaccs » Feb 16, 2011 8:43 pm

Think I my be going nuts... figure you guys can confirm.

My goal is to delete a couple of categories that we decided we are not using. To delete the Category I need to delete all the groups in it ... fair enough.

But whenever I try to delete a group I get the following message "Group 'phil' is in use by the following rules: Manual" I assume "Manual is the default when we are not using named rules. I get this for groups that have nothing using them. I will have a problem when I get to the last group in a category as it does not look like I can make and item "uncategorized" once it is in use.

Any ideas?

Hello Mark,

Do you possible use manual categorization for your virtual objects? Could you please navigate to Workspace tab and double-check if you have any objects that belong to "Phil" group?

Thank you !

I have the same problem. I do have some vms that have been manually categorized, but I am unable to change them back to uncategorized in the workspace. I can open the details for the vm and change the categories, but when I save, no changes are actually done.

I've now moved all vms into a "N/A" option in the category I want to delete, but still I can not delete the other options. It still says the option is in use by the Manual rule

How to delete a group

[merged]

Hi. I have assigned some VMs in a group defined as static. How can I delete the group? I have tried the ''normal'' way but it sais that the group ''Is in use by the following rules:Manual''. I have tried to remove the vms first but i did not manage. How can this be done? Thank you!
