GMS and Gen7 fw

GMS 9.3 (Flow Based Role) can manage Gen7 firewall?

Are flow reporting also available?

    Hi @ENZINO78,

    Thank you for visiting SonicWall Community.

    AFAIK, reporting would work on GMS 9.3 for Gen 7 appliances and Management may not work. There is no Gen 7 appliance listed in the GMS 9.3 release notes.

    Hope this answers.

    Is there a definitive answer for this?

    The release notes say for TZ series for example:

    TZ Series and TZ Wireless: SonicOS 5.0 or newer

    Unless otherwise specifically excluded (which it isn't in the 9.3 release notes) this is quite clear: Any version since SonicOS 5.0 should be fully supported. If this actually isn't the case this is false advertising and may cause unnecessary license purchases from customers.

    I for example have a Gen7 device that I'd like to add to GMS 9.3. If management won't work I shouldn't be required to buy a full node license.

    Could someone comment on the Gen 7 compatibility with GMS? @Micah?

    During a SonicWall webinar, I was able to take this picture that officially solve this issue:

    Thanks. I asked this from support as well and was told that all the features up to the release of GMS 9.3 are supported but not newer ones, which is understandable.
