GMS can't access units after IP Address change

We changed the IP address of our GMS 9.2 vm yesterday. After the change, GMS was accessible and appeared to be able to communicate with the firewalls. I was able to use the "log into unit" feature and access firewalls from GMS.

Today, all of the firewalls appear to be showing down, (I'm not sure about the new icons), but I am still able to log into unit from the GMS interface.

The firewalls are connecting using "Existing Tunnel"

I've checked the firewall rules VPN --> GMS subnet has the correct allow rules

I added a test address object in GMS, and the setting reverts back after trying to update the firewall, and failing

I can ping the GMS ip from the remote firewalls

Any ideas?

    Call with Support

    They determined that the IP address change caused a problem in the database with the scheduler ID. Engineer removed the conflicting data and everything went back to normal.
