@CiscoBlueBelt If you do not have NAT configured at all then you would not need a NAT exemption rule. You would need a NAT exemption if you have a dynamic NAT in your configuration (i.e. for internet access), that could potentially NAT outbound traffic. The NAT exemption rule would need to be placed above the dynamic NAT rule in order to be effective.
In reference to IPSEC VPN, I have the following, the DM objects are being natted to itself correct? I can replace the DM objects with a object-group containing both those objects correct? Why does X.X.X.30_new appear twice?
nat (inside,outside) source static DM_INLINE_NETWORK_1 DM_INLINE_NETWORK_1 destination static X.X.X.30_object X.X.X.30_object
