Severity: 3-Major


When attempting to delete an in-use SNAT translation and SNAT pool in a single transaction, tmsh will report that the SNAT translation object is in use, even though it is up for deletion in the current transaction. The system posts an error similar to the following: SNAT translation address <address> is still referenced by a snat pool


Configuration scripts must order object deletion so that the SNAT translation object is removed before the SNAT pool.


Attempt to delete a SNAT pool and SNAT translation object in the same transaction.


Delete the SNAT translation first, then delete the SNAT pool.
