How to Make Firewall Rules Persistent Across SonicWall Device Reboots?

Hello SonicWall community,

I've been facing an issue with my SonicWall device where the firewall rules I set up seem to be getting disabled every time the device is restarted. This is causing inconvenience as I have to manually enable them again after each reboot.

Can someone guide me on how to make the firewall rules persistent so that they remain enabled even after a device restart? I want to ensure that the configuration is retained without having to re-enable the rules manually.

Any assistance or insight into this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

    @cubero_eduardo Rules should not be disabled after a reboot. I experienced this only one time when a Management Service (e.g. HTTPS Management) was a member of a Service Group used in that Rule. This Rule got disabled, because Management Services cannot be used for non management Rules.

    Could this be the case here?
