That' s correct. If anything is associated with/to that VLAN, you cannot delete it. Check DHCP servers, and address entities as well.

Thanks a lot for your help. You' r correct. A Firewall policy and a DHCP server were configured for this VLAN interface. A soon as I removed these, the button to delete the VLAN interface appeared. Hiding a button because of any config reason is not very friendly... Showing a simple message telling there is remaing config associated with this VLAN interface would have been welcome

on the contrary, it can avoid a lot of misconfiguration and pitfalls when you´re working with a powerful webGUI that not require ' reboot' or ' save' to activate things.

I agree with Abelio. I find it useful to download a config and search it in your favorite text editor if I' m trying to delete something that doesn' t have the delete button.
