For a specific Upgrade Group, the upgrade schedule for that group is synchronized to each member system. When a group schedule is removed, it must be removed not only from TCA-CP Upgrade Manager, but also from each member TCA-CP system of the group.

When you delete a schedule, TCA-CP Upgrade Manager immediately marks that schedule for deletion and then advertises the deletion to its members. Each member system works to remove the schedule. This entire process usually takes just a few minutes.

If a system member of the group is not reachable or not responding, deleting the schedule may fail. In this case, the member system retains the schedule information although it is deleted from the TCA-CP Upgrade Manager. You can use the Force Delete option to try to force deleting the schedule from a member system.


  1. Log in to the VMware Telco Cloud Automation web interface.
  2. Navigate to Administration > TCA-CP Upgrade Manager and click TCA-CP Groups.
    The system displays the list of groups.
  3. Click a group name.
    The group information window lists the TCA-CP systems belonging to the group and displays the group schedule information.
  4. In the Schedules section, select the schedule that you want to delete, and click Delete Schedule.
    A pop-up screen appears prompting you to verify the deletion.
  5. Click Delete.
    The system updates the Schedules status column with the progress of the operation: Deletion in Progress or Failed to Delete. Deleting a schedule can fail if any one of the member systems fails to delete the schedule or is not reachable. To determine which system failed to remove the schedule, review the Schedule Status column under the Systems information.
  6. (Optional) If deleting the schedule is unsuccessful, click Delete Schedule again, select the Force Delete option, and click Delete.
    The Force Delete option is a best effort attempt by TCA-CP Upgrade Manager to delete the schedule, even when a system is not reachable. You can repeat using the Force Delete option until the operation is successful.
