Max number of zones on a NSa2700

How many zones does a NSa2700 support - OS: 7.0.0-R906

I am trying to import a config from an old NSA4600 that has circa 120 zones defined, one for each VLAN and getting an error:

I've tried importing a direct export from the old firewall and also running it through the online tool, which converts it without any issues.

Any thoughts?

    Recreate from scratch. Don't trust importing between different models and software versions. Did you check the compatibility matrix?

    Says extra interface configurations will be removed, among other things...

    Yes, checked the matrix and saw the warning about the interfaces, which shouldn’t apply as I have nothing configured above X11 on the 4600 and the 2700 has 15 GbE interfaces.
    All the major config (120 VLANs / 120 zones) please a couple of address objects, NAT policies and firewall rules per zone…. And I have more than one unit to migrate, with the same levels of config on each one - but point taken about trusting imports across software and model versions!

    Hi @NickEbstarLtd,

    You can find the max supported Zone detail for NSA 2700 from its TSR. Here it is for you.

    • Base Max Zone Objects:       206
    • Max Total Zone Objects:       206

    Hope this helps.
