Error deleting partition - cannot be deleted because it contains configuration item (folder /my_partition/Drafts)

Hi guys,

 

I've been trying to clear out some test pieces on our BIGIP. Now I want to delete the partition that I've been working in and I've cleared out everything that I could see in the 'bigip.conf' at the time. Now I have an empty folder within /config/partitions/my_partition - no config file at all.

 

When I try to delete 'my_partition', it comes up with an error:

 

010713f9:3: The folder /my_partition cannot be deleted because it contains configuration item (folder /my_partition/Drafts)

 

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks.

 

  • I was able to delete the 'Drafts' folder under there in tmsh and that allowed me to remove the partition.
