Rename Device Group

L1 Bithead

Hi,

 

We've just 'merged' policies for 2 set of devices in a same Device group and would like to rename Device Group to indicate the list of devices. For example :

 

Original :

Device Group AU - au-pa01, au-pa02 (active/passive)

Device Group NZ - na-pa01, nz-pa01 (active/passive)

 

After Merging/Changes :

Device Group AU - au-pa01/02, nz-pa01/02

Device Group NZ - no firewall anymore

 

Panorama : v10

PA : v9.1

 

Now, we are planning to rename the Device Group AU to Device Group ANZ (more meaningful name), i tried to do that via panorama, but the differences of configs (which are huge) prior committing kinda freak me out hence we didnt make the change yet.

 

Can anyone share whether Device Group rename will cause any issue or should we change it during maintenance window ?

 

Thanks in advance.

Device group rename should not cause any issues.

I have done this few times.

 

You do not need maintenance window for it.

I can confirm the same already written by @MP18. Renaming a device group works without problems.

The task which is more "critical" is moving devices into other device groups. There you need to be sure what changes you did and that you configured everything in the new destination device group that it will work as before.

Finally changed the device group name, failed the 1st time with heaps of error when committing to Panorama, but on 2nd try, no errors.

Unfortunately, didnt managed to capture the error.

 

Thanks again !
