I removed a static nat entry. I cleared the xlate table - within seconds the static translation for the entry I had just removed was back.
The firewall did not remove the entry from the translation table
Despite the fact that there is a command 'clear xlate' to clear the translation table which - the nat entry would only dissapear for a couple of seconds and then reappear. It was an system fault with the pix.
I tried a specific 'clear xlate <IP>' and then a global 'clear xlate' and neither worked.
This inherent fault is proven by the fact that, when rebooting the firewall, the problem dissapeared and the translation remained 'gone'. As I'm sure you'll agree it should not be necessary to reboot the firewall to get rid of an X-late entry.
