Gen 7 - where are VPN policies listed?

Deleting (or attempting to delete) all references to GMS from a migrated device.

When I click the trash can, I get this:

So where do I find this mysterious VPN Policy?

Thanks so much!

    @Ajishlal these are auto-added remnants from NSM and I thought that once the main rules were deleted the objects - which now show no reference - could be deleted.

    I downloaded the TSR and stepped through it with EditPlus to find all references to "GMS" and, eventually, tracked it down to Network - IPSec VPN - Rules and Settings. (I'm sorry SW, but that's not quite obvious.)

    I located the NSM-created policy and deleted it, which let me delete those objects. Time for more cleanup!

    Check the object is added / used in VPN policy or check unused ACL rules. (VPN->LAN - LAN->VPN)

    so you mean NSM is the culprit :) Good luck

    @Larry did you try list vpn policies via CLI?

    maybe the gui is not showing the vpn settings.

    @MitatOnge the GUI most definitely shows them. My question was: where, exactly, is that.

    Found it though the hunt-and-poke method, primarily because I don't normally refer to VPN as IPSec VPN. Nor did the Gen 6.5 GUI.
