With multiple MIPs in a policy, a user can delete the MIP configuration in the policy and the "In-Use" message is not reported



Article ID: KB12404 KB Last Updated: 08 Jan 2009Version: 2.0
ScreenOS allows users to delete a MIP configured in a policy with multiple MIPS and does not report the 'In-Use' message.

When a MIP is configured in a policy, and the user accidently tries to delete it, ScreenOS will not let it be deleted.  It will report a message about it being "In-Use".

However, in the case where multiple MIPs are configured in a  policy, ScreenOS will allow the user to delete the MIP configuration even though they are being used in the policy. The firewall will allow the user to delete these MIPs without any warning.
This is working as per design and is not a bug.

The behavior of the MIP address is the same as a regular address. That is to say, if you add many regular addresses into a policy, you are allowed to remove them one by one until the policy has one address left.

The same theory applies to a policy with multiple MIPs configured.
