This topic describes how to delete Network Address Translation (NAT) gateways.

Prerequisites

Before you delete a NAT gateway, make sure that the following requirements are met:
  • The NAT gateway is not associated with an elastic IP address (EIP). If the NAT gateway is associated with an EIP, disassociate the EIP. For more information, see Disassociate EIPs from a NAT gateway.
  • The Destination Network Address Translation (DNAT) table is empty. If the DNAT table contains DNAT entries, delete these entries. For more information, see Delete a DNAT entry.
  • The Source Network Address Translation (SNAT) table is empty. If the SNAT table contains SNAT entries, delete these entries. For more information, see Delete a SNAT entry.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the NAT Gateway console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select the region where the NAT gateway is deployed.
  3. On the NAT Gateway page, find the NAT gateway that you want to delete, and then choose More > Delete in the Actions column.
  4. In the Delete Gateway dialog box, click OK.
    Note If you select Delete (Delete NAT gateway and resources), the DNAT and SNAT entries of the NAT gateway are automatically deleted. EIPs that are associated with the NAT gateway are disassociated.
