Hey @nst1,


I suppose the question actually becomes:

Why are you using the switch in L3 mode if you don't want it to route any traffic? 🙂 

If you configure a L3 interface, you will always need to have a route to reach out to the internet and therefore we will make sure that you do not delete it as it would cause loss of service to the device. 


Solution here, I think, would be to either move back to L2 if L3 is not required or create an alternative default route.


Hope this helps!
