Netscreen IP Wildcard Translation

I'm just beginning my migration from Netscreen to PaloAlto and one thing I keep running into is the MT translating wildcard masks like below:


set address "CorpNet" "0100-199_SVRS" " 100 - 199 Servers"


into decimal subnet masks like below. Which the Palo doesn't like when I paste it in.


set address 0100-199_SVRS ip-netmask
set address 0100-199_SVRS description "100 - 199 Servers"

 Why is this happening ?

We dont support wildcards sorry. Those wildcards masks can ended up with being hundreds of networks. We tried once to add support to convert those wildcards into networks but the amount of networks created were way to big and we deciced to remove that from the MT. Sorry you will have to manually convert into regular networks and replace it in your config... Sorry
