Symptoms:

  • The tags are not getting deleted after the expected 5 day period (Please see "Related Information" section for reference).

Cause

Due to a change in the purge task that is scheduled once a day, it is possible to encounter a situation whereby the removal of tags that are not assigned to any object is not being carried out.

This issue has been resolved in NSX-T 3.2.2.

Resolution

If you encounter this issue, please upgrade to NSX-T 3.2.2.

Additional Information

Documentation below for NSX-T 3.2 states that "When a tag is unassigned from all objects, the tag is deleted automatically from the inventory after five days."
