I'm considering replacing our NSa2600 OS 6.5.4 to NSa2700 and TZ400 to TZ470W. Question: Can I simply import the configuration file from old FW to new FW or do I have to start from scratch.
Welcome to SonicWall community.
The following KB usually lists the supported imports from one sonicwall model to another.
I think NSa 2700 and TZ 470W are not part of this list and they are extremely new. But, most probably they are supported as an import from TZ 500 to TZ 570W is currently supported. I will get in touch with the concerned team to check if we can update the details on this KB.

Hi @DiagoFernandes ,
Please try to use SonicWall migration Tool.
NB: TZ 470 not listed in the migration tool
Hi, have you done the import from 2600 to 2700? I need to do the same, I tried and it give me a warning, I don't find if something has not been imported. I need to check every menu...
I just attended a presentation of the Gen 7 migration best practices. The key takeaway: You have a HUGE advantage of configuring your new Gen 7 device when you use the Migration Tool. You stand to lose functionality if you simply import.
Accordingly, the proper steps for migration:
Sure hope that makes it to a KB article with some more detail and possibly screen extracts...
Along with SonicWall's insistance that the "old way" of simply importing - that we've done for generations - is not "best practice" when it comes to Gen 7.
Hi @Larry ,
Thank you for sharing the steps for the settings migration process. I will review the existing KB: (https://www.sonicwall.com/support/knowledge-base/how-to-create-gen-7-settings-file-by-using-the-online-migration-tool/210115150800277/) and act accordingly.
