Download the Migration Tool

[ Edited ]

Overview

The Palo Alto Networks Migration Tool is derived from the successful Migration Tool used by the Palo Alto Networks Professional Services Organization and Channel Partners. It’s an evolution of the Migration Tool into a configuration platform that allows you to, not only migrate configurations, but enhance, optimize, add, remove or edit elements, ultimately converting the legacy device rules into a next-generation model by creating App-IDs based on real traffic acquired from devices being installed or already in production. The Palo Alto Networks Migration Tool is a valuable asset for network security administrators who need or want to keep their rulebases in a pristine state.

Note: The Migration Tool is packaged as a virtual machine image. The download file is a zipped tar archive and the size is approximately 760MB.

Re: Download the Migration Tool

Hi,

The Old migration tool 2.5 can import only a selection of static nats. Only when the nat is created as "static (zone,zone) xxx xxxx" without any reference to interfaces or access-list.

Remember the Migration Tool its only a part of a migration project where Technology, Process and People an required to achieve that, the Tool is obviously the Technology but in order to migrate you need to have the right process and people with knowledge to do that and help to cover the things that the tool doesn't do automatically today.

hope it helps

Re: Download the Migration Tool

Hi,

I've tried multiple times now, with Safari, Chrome, and Firefox browsers and all downloads give me the same result that the VMX file is corrupt.  I've tried downloading as a community user and as a non-community user both with the same result the file is corrupt.  I am using VM Fusion 7.  I've stopped and started VM Fusion and that has not worked either.
