Re: Export / Import system state general global parameters

Hi

 

None of these can be changed, they are inherent to the system hardware (so any PA-3020 will have an identical set as any other PA-3020. any PA-200 will have an identical set to other PA-200. etc. and they are incompatible with other chassis)

Re: Export / Import system state general global parameters

ah! 

but that is not a system state setting :D

 

there are 2 ways of implementing tcp-non-syn bypass (as reject is the default setting on all platforms)

so in case you do have an asymmetry in your network design that requires you to use this setting, I would recommend using the configuration mode setting

 

> configure 
Entering configuration mode
[edit]     
this is the global setting #set deviceconfig setting session tcp-reject-non-syn <yes|no>
this is the zone-based equivalent #set network profiles zone-protection-profile <name> tcp-reject-non-syn <global|yes|no>

rather than the operational mode setting (which should be used for troubleshooting and not permanent changes):

> set session tcp-reject-non-syn <yes|no>

the configuration mode settings will be included in your exportable config file while the operational commands will not (but arguably should not as they are not intended to be permanent)

Re: Export / Import system state general global parameters

That's a chassis dependent parameter so it can't be exported/imported

 

is there a specific reason you want to export/import these ? (are you trying to increase the maximum supported arp entries on a smaller platform ? )

Yes - replacing a machine.

When I replace a machine, how can I copy all these settings (Assuming some of them were changed)

Re: Export / Import system state general global parameters

Thank you

But what about parameters like tcp-reject-non-syn for example?

So there is nothing at all I should ever copy from system state to another machine, right?

Re: Export / Import system state general global parameters

the system state cannot be copied as it is a summary of your system's overall 'being'

 

FYI a "device state" can be moved over to a new machine (this includes panorama config)
