This topic describes how to disassociate elastic IP addresses (EIPs) from a Network Address Translation (NAT) gateway.


Before you disassociate an EIP from a NAT gateway, make sure that the EIP is not used in any Source Network Address Translation (SNAT) or Destination Network Address Translation (DNAT) entries. If the EIP is used in a SNAT or DNAT entry, delete the SNAT or DNAT entry. For more information, see Delete a SNAT entry and Delete a DNAT entry.


  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 from which you want to disassociate EIPs, and choose More > Unbind Elastic IP Address in the Actions column.
  4. In the Unbind Elastic IP Address dialog box, select the EIP that you want to disassociate, and click OK.
