Copy Policy Between VSYS

Not applicable

We are getting ready to start using multiple VSYS on our PA. Want to find out if there is a way to move or copy policy and objects from one VSYS to another?

We have many policies in our original VSYS1 and want to move those policies and objects into the new VSYS which are now going to be configured for different Divisions in our organization.

It's a little tricky but I was able to use XML Notepad to accomplish some of the tasks. Albeit, I had to create the 2nd vsys and make sure the zones matched. So for instance, I exported the running-config.xml after creating the 2nd vsys. I opened the file with XML Notepad. I copied the rulebase folder from the vsys1 entry and pasted it to the vsys2 entry. Saved the configuration and named it something different. I then imported the config as a snapshot and loaded soon thereafter. Noticed the rules are now present for vsys2. This should be a plausible solution for objects as well. Provided a screenshots to this thread.

Thanks looks like this will work. Your right it can get a little tricky but it does work. Can be time consuming copying what you need from one vsys to another but cuts down the time it would take to recreate the rules and objects.

totally agree with you there!
