Question:

I shipped an element to a remote location, now (two days later) I want to delete the element.

I am getting an error 1708-0002 that indicates that the element does not exist on the host file.

How am i going to delete the element from Endevor

Answer:

Since the element does not exist at the host side to delete, follow these steps to get the delete to work:

  • Add the element into Endevor 
  • Move the element (in a package) to the host file that does not have the element.
  • Delete the element with a second package.  Endevor now knows that a delete of the element is generating a ship delete at the remote location.
