An error is displayed when a user tries to delete a previously imported access policy that contains a customization file and an LDAP object reference.


Unable to delete imported policy which contains customization file and LDAP object reference.


One cannot delete the attached policy after import. The error is as follows- 01071349:3: File object by name (/Common/swapnil-img_0_HQ_1.jpg) is in use. One has to deselect the above object from the objects to be deleted list and many other file-objects as well. Even after that another error appears: 01071192:3: Cannot delete aaa ldap server (/Common/swapnil-AAA_LDAP) because it is referenced by an agent (LDAP Query) in access profile (/Common/swapnil-aaa_ldap_hq_query). The agent is part of the policy which is being deleted so the above error is wrong. The Policy Delete operation should be able to delete the agent as well as the referenced LDAP server.


To work around the problem, delete the access policy only and then delete the linked objects
