Panorama import config of firewall

Hi

 

So setup my HA cluster woo hoo. So now I have setup panoram

 

I have gone to managed devices and added in my 2 PA from above - by serial number, I can see then, I can change context into them.  I went to each PA and add in the FQDN for the panoram in the setup panoram section

 

Now I go Device / Setup / Oprations / Import / IMport device configuration 

 

and there are no device in the device drop down list :(

 

Now sure what I need to do or how to debug ...

Okay I rechecked the page and reread.

 

I found my mistake

 

I had thought I had read, you can import a device unless it is attached to a device group or template

 

I had mine attached to a device group !!!

 

I have now removed it from the device group (and template) and I can see it in the drop down box

 

Thanks

Hey @Alex_Samad

 

 

Just one observation. Have you committed the changes to Panorama after adding the devices to Managed Devices?

 

If not, I advise you to do that, as adding devices is considered a Panorama change; hence, needs a commit to the Panorama level to take effect.

 

After that, try the import process again, and you should be able to see the devices listed there.

 

Just one comment, I typically add devices to Panorama, and then do most of the network and device configurations through the templates, so it is easy to control. I then create a device group, and add all my policies into it, and then push everything templates and device group changes to the appliance from Panorama. This way I don't need to import the firewall after into the management center.

 

If these are existing firewalls that have never been managed via Panorama, then yes, the process you are mentioning makes a lot of sense.

Hi

 

Yes I have commited - was going to try rebooting panorama :)

 

They are not new - I want to grab all the work I have on them into panorama.

 

So I haven't as yet started to look at templates.  Still lots of reading to do.

 

and that was the URL i was using
