Issue/Introduction

From time to time robots are moved from one group to another, and when it happens they retain the settings from the old group. 
How can we easily identify when it happens to a system? 
How can we clean out the invalid entries? 

Cause

The system hosting the robot is repurposed by a different team, then after the UIM team removes the robot from the group. 

Environment

Release : 20.4

Component : UIM - MON_CONFIG_SERVICE

Resolution

When a server is removed from a MCS group, MCS should remove the profiles and policies for the server. 

If a server is repurposed or reimaged without first removing it from the old MCS group then MCS will push out the profiles and policies to the server.
