SonicWall to Palo Alto Migration?

Hello :)

I am doing a migration from a Sonicwall device to a Palo device and I am not finding any migration tools that can help me. Does anyone know of a tool that will migrate from Sonicwall to PAN? 

 

I am at a loss of how to go about this without building it all up from scratch.

@Roshawn,

Probably not what you were hoping to hear, and I'll redibly admit it doesn't help answer your question, but I would personally take the time to rebuild the configuration during a migration. I say this for two reasons; the first being that you don't have to go back and 'Palotize' the configuration at a later date, and the second being you can take the chance to verify there are no un-needed configuration statements that get moved over. 

As far as actually moving over a sonicwall configuration as you've already noted the migration tool does not include a sonicwall option. Sonicwall has been a very popular request as far as adding it to the migration tool goes, it simply hasn't been done yet. If you are comfortable working with XML I would suggest modifying the actual configuration file directly, it makes migrations like this a little faster in my experience.

hi @Roshawn

Have you tried "The Palo Alto Networks Migration Tool' ?

Hello@reaper :)

 

I have tried the migration tool but Sonicwall isn't a choice. That being the case, I still tried to import the config under every choice and still got nowhere :/
