Expedition: Set interface Media type

L2 Linker

I have a bunch of interfaces imported from CheckPoint that have no media type; Section Header is "Media:".. and exposing the column "Media".. the column is blank for each interface.  Remap button does nothing.

They are not exporting.


How do I set the media type to Ethernet or Aggregate-Ethernet ?

Hi @gfowler , can you try  double click on each of the interface, it will open up another window for you to change the media type. 

I see what your saying.. but that changes the Type (Layer 3, layer 2 etc.)..  it does not change it to ethernet or aggregate-ethernet..   even though there is an option in the pull down for "Aggregate Ethernet", it does not impact the Media Type..


There was a negative effect to attempting that..  it wiped out the IP address information and security zone..  VLAN  tag stayed though. oddly enough..




If you changed the name , it should change to Ethernet  as shown in the screenshot :  

For Aggregated-Ethernet, you will need to manually click on the "+" on the right upper corner to add it first.

The name can be changed..   but the "Media" does not change..

Look at a column header and expose the Media column, hidden by default.   Mine are blank..


I can create new Ethernet and ae interfaces..  and they appear with new Section headers of Media: ethernet and Media: aggregate-ethernet..    but I can't seem to move my imported interfaces from "Media:" to "Media: aggregate-ethernet".

Should I assume these forums are not monitored by palo support or the Expedition Devs ?

Is there a better place to get support for this tool ?

@gfowler have you tried clicking on "remap interface name", you can remap the interface to AE1 . Also please make sure your expedition version is up to date , the latest version is 1.1.100
