PDM Locations and PDM groups

I read in the cisco documentation that the PDM locations and PDM groups could all be removed without any effect on the firewall.  As I understand it the next time someone opens up the WEBGUI that it will once again add the groups and locations currently in the firewall.  I also saw on here that someone had said it was dangerous to remove a couple key PDM locations.  Can I remove all the groups and locations with out causing some sort of problem?

Thanks,

Sunny

The locations can certainly be taken out with no ill effects to the function of the PIX, but these are sort of intertwined with the groups.
the PDM location entry is used to define the PDM groups
The PDM groups have the potential to be referenced within object-groups which can be referenced by access-lists. Removing them without full knowlege of how they are being used could be deterimental to the function of the PIX.

If you will never use the GUI, and there are no object-group configurations, then you are safe to remove all PDM ---- entries.
