Plex/Web Give Warning on Delete Server if PlexHome Active
Now that the Delete Server / Remove Server option is back again on the Settings / Devices page, it appears that we need some protection in cases where PlexHome is active.
We keep on getting situations where users lock themselves out with Error 401 to access their server after its removal - even localhost:32400/web fails
I will try and link the threads I have come across but i expect the issue is straightforward
Two suggestions from me:
When an attempt is made to Remove a Plex Media Server on the Settings / Devices screen then a check should be made to establish if PlexHome is active. I presume this check can be made regardless of their being an active internet connection.
If the Plex Media Server does have Plex Home active then an error could be returned asking the user to dis-establish Plex Home before requesting the server to be deleted
Alternatively, it should take the user through the steps to de-activate PlexHome for the server and then removing the server - allowing the user to change his/her mind and cancel the request at each step till the final step
I do not know if the same issues would arise in the case of their not being a PlexHome but a pin added to the master account.
