Single vWire to Multi vSys



I wonder if someone can help - I currently have a firewall deployed in a vWire configuration, however the requirements for the site are changing and we now need to utilise the Multi-vSys feature.

I've had a look but can't see any information that specifically states whether or not when this license is applied and Multi-vSys is enabled, whether or not the existing configuration will be erased/reset?


Or is it a case of all configuration currently exists in 'vsys1' and will carry on being part of 'vsys1' once multi-vsys is enabled, then from that point, I can create another vsys (vsys2?) and allocate interfaces, etc accordingly?


Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi Scott,


Your spot on, configuration will be contained within vsys1, when you enable virtual systems (licensable) your configuration will remain (in vsys1) and now have the ability to create/update virtual systems, assign resources and interfaces. Device > Virtual Systems (will only show when enabled).


for quick reference to the admin guide:

Hi Ben,


Thanks for the quick response and info.


This should hopefully prevent me from knocking a site offline that's a few thousand miles away from me! :)


Thanks again :)
