I'm trying to delete my Network Load Balancer. However, I've received an error indicating that the "Network Load Balancer is currently associated with another service." How can I troubleshoot this error?

Short Description

This error message indicates that a Network Load Balancer you're trying to delete is already associated with a virtual private cloud (VPC) endpoint service. Before you can delete a Network Load Balancer, you must first disassociate it from any associated VPC endpoint services. To do this:

  1. Reject the endpoint connections on the service.
  2. Disassociate the Network Load Balancer from the VPC endpoint service.
  3. Delete the Network Load Balancer.

Resolution

  1. Open the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) console.
  2. In the navigation pane, choose Endpoint Services.
  3. Review the Network Load Balancer tab for each of your endpoint services to determine whether your Network Load Balancer is associated with an endpoint service.
  4. Choose the Endpoint Connections tab to determine which endpoint connections are attached to your endpoint service.
  5. For all of the connections that are not in the Rejected state, choose Actions, and then choose Reject endpoint connection request.
  6. Choose the Network Load Balancers tab.
  7. Choose Associate/Disassociate Network Load Balancer to disassociate your Network Load Balancer from the endpoint service.
  8. Delete the Network Load Balancer.
