Auto Scale Group - VM Series

For my EC2 instances (App Server), I just created Launch Template/ASG. Can I do the same thing with the VM-Series FWs? Capture an AMI, create a Launch Template and ASG? 


Here is my situation, 

I have two firewalls that I manually built under an NLB. I would like to replace those with an ASG. 

Any advice would be super appreciated. Thank you,

We have examples of firewalls in an ASG here.  Please review and post back with any questions.

I apologize for asking stupid questions. . 

Looking at the templates, there are many and it appears most - if not all would work. 


I guess I'm looking for direct guidance on the approach to take. 


The two firewalls I have are being load balanced under an NLB. One firewall is in AZA and another in AZB. 


I can export the xml configuration.. 

With that, what template should I dig into that you suggest? I just want an ASG in each AZ. 


Thanks again.

If you would like an ASG in each AZ then you would have to use Auto Scale 1.2 template for that. Auto Scale 2.1 Template only uses one Auto Scale Group for all the AZ's
