Secure Upgrade from NSA 2600 -2650, 3600 - 3650, 4600-4650

We have recently purchased secure upgrade with license of the subjected model of Sonicwall NSA firewall series..

Question

All our firewalls 2600, 3600, 4600 are live and running now. When we migrate all to 2650,3650 & 4650, our plan is to backup the old configuration from old models and upload the configuration to new models.

Is it possible without future errors of any means?

What i mean is whether we need to do manual configuration from scratch in all new firewalls, or whether it will support the upload & restore of the config file.

Kindly support and advice.

    Hi @gmenon,

    Thank you for visiting SonicWall Community.

    Yes, settings migration from one firewall model to another firewall model should be supported. To verify the settings import between the firewall models, please check the below KB article to confirm the support.

    Hope this helps.

    In cases like this I usually produce a full TSR report. That way I have a hard-copy of the configuration. If anything is amiss later, I can refer back to it to see what may have been changed on the new device.

    Here's the reason I'm a little gun-shy about using EXP files: https://community.sonicwall.com/technology-and-support/discussion/1554/need-help-getting-data-back-from-exp-file#latest
