I don't think I really want to spend all day at this - CLI anyone?

Adding my client's default Address Objects and Groups to a new TZ350 in CSC-MA.

I keep getting this:

After 15 minutes, I'm pretty much convinced this is NOT an effective use of my time.

Could someone please point me in the direction of a SonicWall University course and/or documentation on quickly getting started with the CLI?

  • Hi @LARRY,

    Are you looking for CLI feature or API to configure CSC w.r.t firewall configuration? Please let us know.

    @Saravanan I honestly do not know which one is easier to understand and faster to implement. Sorry that that's not an answer...

    Login using SSH

    then enter as below, or copy and paste from a text file for multiple entries, don't try and add to many in one go as you will get errors


    address-object ipv4 "Test object"

    name "Remote Analyzer"

    zone LAN



    To create the Groups as below

    address-group ipv4 "Test object Group"

    address-object ipv4 "Test object"



    you only need to use "" if spaces are present in the name

    also when pasting in to here, it added extra blank lines

    if you want a guide on the CLI the best way to get this is to look at the exported CLI file as it is in the same format you need for the CLI commands, you can get if you import your config file to

    and then export as cli file or you can export this way via FTP

    export current-config cli ftp ftp://username:password@
