Firewall rebooting after joining NSM

I have an NSA3600 HA pair. Yesterday I changed my management mode from on-box to cloud to use NSM. I successfully acquired the firewall but for some reason after acquiring, it failed over to the secondary firewall and the primary is in an endless reboot cycle. I also can't manage it from NSM.

Has anyone encountered a similar situation ?

    Hi @nebula

    I had this kind of situation with CSC-MA (predecessor of NSM, the announced migration never happened) where a stuck Scheduled task cause the permanent reboot, not sure that this could be the case here too.


  • Hi @NEBULA,

    Thank you for visiting SonicWall Community.

    There should be a single reboot observed on the firewall as the Cloud Server does Flow Server settings automatically once the firewall is acquired on the CSC/NSM. But there shouldn't be an endless reboot. If its endless reboot, this should be critical. Please approach our support team to take further assistance on this in real-time.
