load config partial mode append issue

L3 Networker

I am trying to do a ‘load config partial mode append’ to get the policy exported from Expedition into a device-group that already has policy/nat rules (those rules are from a previous Expedition project, and we are trying to combine 2 ASA contexts into 1 PA firewall). Normally I do a ‘merge’ instead of an ‘append,’ but the rules/nat’s are merging in a way I don’t want. When I try to append the rules, I get an error that says:


Device-group -> ‘name of device group here’ -> pre-rulebase -> rulebase unexpected here. Discarding.


Needless to say neither the rules or nats are getting imported. Any thoughts?

if you have verified the configurations are in the source XML file then I would recommend you contact PanOS support to debug the cause of the 'append' option not being implemented correctly.
