    Hi @AGSonicWall,

    I've spoked to a few folks internally, here is some feedback:

    • retry using incognito mode and a different browser
    • or collect a new EXP file in case it got corrupted

    If you continue to experience the same issue, please create a support ticket.

    @EnaBev I just did as you requested and in Firefox (my default) it fails. It also fails in Private mode. It also fails in Chrome.

    Respectfully, this is a SonicWall back-end problem. And I, for one, am not going to engage in a pointless conversation with a CSR who is going to think there's an issue with my TZ250W - because, after all, the only way to contact support is to provide a device serial number.

    Please get someone to take a closer look internally.
