Cancel/undo/revert/delete some Local-overrides that were generated directly in the firewall

L4 Transporter

Hello good evening, again here bothering and looking for your collaboration for some questions about Panorama.

 

I have the following doubt, I understand that Local Override is not the best practice and should be used only in particular cases.

 

I have the following question:

 

It is possible to simply override "some Local Overrides", I mean local overrides directly in the firewalls, Example log in directly to the Firewall or through context switching and only override "some" not all, override or reverse some "local overrides" let's say partially only some parameters, so that only in those overrides of the local overrides, take the configurations again, from Panorama.

 

Is it possible, let's say simply, to log into a firewall, which already has several Override-Locales in some configs, and directly revert and/or cancel those Override locales, in short, remove the local-override from some configs and leave them to be injected from Panorama, not local.

 

Thanks for the collaboration, help and support, I remain attentive, best regards.

Thank you for the post @Metgatz

 

if I interpreted your question correctly, then enforcing Template configuration or in reverting to local configuration is fairly easy.

 

Every time, you see solid green gear, the configuration is coming from Template. If you want to revert it to local configuration, you click on the gear icon and icon changes to orange overlay green gear icon. This indicates that configuration is local. After you commit it, it is using local configuration. The same logic applies if you want to enforce Template over local configuration. You can do this one by one for almost all configurations under Network and Device.

 

Here is the KB explaining meaning of gear icons:

Brilliant, PavelK at the rescus once again ! 

I've been doing a lot of deployments using template/template-stack roll-outs and was stuck on an old previously deployed FW that was not applying the template set parameter setting. Local setting was overriding and this KB saved me 🙂
