Expedition Stuck at "Reading Config files"

L0 Member

I am trying to migrate configuration from Fortinet, It's quite big configuration (around 65K rule). When importing the config file. Expedition is stuck at reading config files.

I tried updating, increasing resources and even a fresh installation of Expedition but with the same result.
Is this a system limitatio



n for the number of objects to be migrated ?

It's doing the same for a smaller file as well. 

The same file was working before the update.

There is a recent hotfix (1.2.90)  related to FortiGate. It might have something to do with it. 

I am currently on 1.2.90.

Try to go for some previous version. My previous installation was two months old and it was working. 

Hi @Barely-Working and @Mohamed.Mezar 


Thanks for reaching out and sharing your findings.


Is it possible you share your configuration file with us using a TAC case? if so, please send the TAC case number to fwmigrate@paloaltonetworks.com 


I will check in my side as well with other configuration files.


For futher troubleshooting, when executing the migration, please check the file /tmp/error


Additionally, you can install the version 1.2.89 following the commands provided in the release notes.
