Fixed In:

Opened: Dec 03, 2015
Severity: 4-Minor


The SNAT feature of an LTM policy used two keywords, 'automap' and 'none', to configure SNAT as automap or disabled, respectively. It turns out that the keyword 'none' has special meaning in tmsh, and is treated as an invalid value.


Cannot disable SNAT using LTM policy.


-- LTM policy with automap action. -- Attempt to disable SNAT from either GUI or tmsh using the value 'none'.


Remove the SNAT action from LTM policy, and use an iRule instead.

Fix Information

LTM policy can now successfully disable SNAT.
