How do I remove a rogue group from the DA that does not show in CA Performance Center?



  1. First go to http://<DA>:8581/rest/groups/ in a REST client.  This should show all groups on the DA iin a REST clientncluding the rogue group
  2. Simply search for the rogue group name.  It will be between the Name tags.  For example: <Name>Test MPLS</Name>
  3. The group will have an ID associated with it.  For example:

<Group version="1.0.0">



<IsA name="SyncableGroup" rootURL="syncablegroup"/>

<IsA name="MonitoredGroup" rootURL="monitoredgroups"/>

<IsA name="Syncable" rootURL="syncable"/>


<Syncable version="1.0.0"/>

<MonitoredGroup version="0.0.0"/>

<Item version="1.0.0">

<Name>Test MPLS</Name>

<CreateTime>Tue Apr 12 0:30:21 2016 -0400</CreateTime>



4. Now do a GET in the REST client on http://<DA>:8581/rest/groups/18005 and this will give you just the rogue group, in this case TEST MPLS.

5. Now just change the "method" in the REST client from "GET" to "DELETE" and run it.  This will delete the rogue group
