Can I use an existing configuration file when I upgrade to a new Firebox.? [WSM/Fireware XTM v11.x]


Yes, but you must configure the new Firebox with a basic configuration and then save the existing configuration to the new Firebox. Some changes must be made to the existing configuration before you save it to the new Firebox.

  • If the new Firebox model has fewer interfaces than your existing one, you must disable the extra interfaces in the existing configuration to give the new Firebox the same number of interfaces as the existing one.
  • You must remove the current feature key and add the feature key for the new Firebox.

For more information and more detailed instructions, see Use an existing configuration for a new Firebox model.
