Expedition SonicWall Support?

L3 Networker

Hi,

 

It appears that SonicWall configs are not supported in the Expedition Migration Tool. Are there any plans to add support for this firewall vendor?

 

Thanks.

I am starting a sonicwall to PAN migration and I am having issues getting the sonicwall.exp file into a csv file. I open the .exp file in the SonicReader v0.7 and get an error " Could not properly parse configtext; Hashes are empty!" . I still am able to view the raw text. When I try and view the HTML report I just see "Please wait. Processing..." and never get a html file. How to proceed with this? Is there another way to get the .exp or raw text file into a tabled format that could be used as a csv to import into expedition? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like I am able to get an html output with tables using the SonicReader v0.5. Still looking for any other tips that would help a migration from SonicWall to PAN.

 for the Sonicwall Config export, please follow the following CLI way:

1) login via SSH
2) no cli pager session

3) show current-config

 

with this you can work with the existing script to generate a CSV.
EDIT: 20221012

But we are already working on an BETA script, which is not publish yet.

Thank you Sven for the tips. You mention existing scripts. When can I find those? Any chance to test out the beta script as well. Would be happy to report on my experience with it to help with the debug and improvement. Thank you for your time on this matter,

as mention the tool is underdevelopment but you can of course ping me via mail and I will send you the installation instructions plus the tool itself.

statement is no longer correct

the mentioned Sonicwall migration script will be available within Expedition 2.0.
Please be aware that until now no EXP config exported config is supported and also Sonicwall version is limited to <6.5

Sonicwall config export must be done this way:

1) login via SSH
2) no cli pager session

3) show current-config

Planning a SonicWall (SW) migration.  Putting this method in my toolbox.  Would beat a manual build on a Day1 cfg.  I was hoping to get the policies out of the SonicWall into csv format and manipulate for use.  From a July 2020 SW forum post, "Access rules export is available by default from next generation firewalls (Gen 7)"  I don't think I have Gen 7 SWs but still gathering info. Also in the post, the "MySonicwall tool" will convert a SW cfg backup into text file.  I found the online SW Migration tool but I think the MySonicwall tool requires a support logon.  Thanks KenLynch.

Has Sonicwall been added to Expedition?

 

Hi @B.Child ,

 

SonicWall migration for 7.0+ versions are done by a Palo Alto Networks tool called PANser delivered as a web-service container and maintained by the Migration Factory team. You can get more information and contact the supporting team by fulfilling this google form: https://forms.gle/zXGWh9cNgNaHSFBW6

 

The output of PANser can be loaded in both Expedition1 and Expedition2. Also Expedition2, in beta version, offers the integration with the PANser tool but you can just execute the PANser standalone and execute the API calls to get your transformation.

 

Hope the above information helps you,

 

Best,

 

David
