Symptoms

Description of the Problem:

Group connection(GC)(user defined ) is not giving an option of Maintain Group. When the members are Unassociated and when the user tries to unassociate the group connection itself then he/gets a message ,

 

"You cannot a un-associate a group connection that contains member connections".


The user can see the member in the Connection Hierarchy screen. Also , if the member is deleted from Connection Hierarchy , the GC can also be un-associated in the network system.

As per the user this is working fine for the Inverse Multiplexing Group

 

Steps to replicate the issue :


Tested on 6.0.15.928.20 and 6.2.1528 

1-Open a network system.

2-Make a new connection between the 2 components.

3-Make a new Group Connection using the GROUP Connection Spec.Right click and select Maintain Group option .Make a new member connection.Hit OK and Save the NS.

4-Again open the NS .Open the GC Connection .Right Click , but it doesn't give the "Maintain group" option, so that we can Unassociate the connection CKT1 .However, it gives the option to Unassociate it like the normal connection .Unassociate.Save the NS.

5-Now try unassociating the GC . It says "You cannot a un-associate a group connection that contains member connections", But we can't see the member connection in the Network System Connection Properties.This is strange.

6-Open the GC in Connection Hierarchy here we can see the member .Delete the member from Connection Hierarchy and we unassociate the GC in the NS now
