Cisco asa logging lists

Cisco asa 5510. 8.2.5

I keep getting an error message when trying to modify a logging list on my asa. The error is
'Can not modify logging list notify-test while in use'

Even after I disable logging or try to even delete the list I'll still get the same error and I can't find a command to disable the list.

Does and expert have any solutions for this? I can create new lists but I'd prefer to keep my config clean. Thanks.

Hello Axis,

Have you try deleting the list by using no logging list notify-test (assuming that is the correct name for the logging list)

I have tried deleting the list by using the 'no logging list notify-test' but it just says "error: ca not modify logging list notify-test while in use"

The output of 'show run | incl notify-test' give me this

logging list notify-test message 605004
logging list notify-test message 305012
logging monitor notify-test

Still the same message 'error: can not modify logging list notify-test while in use'

i am starting to think a reboot is necessary as it shouldn't be this difficult. It won't let me do it from the asdm either.
