Change Name of active Zones or Replace

L0 Member


 we want to change the name from some active Zones that are active in policies. If we change the name than panormama display an error message.


Is it possible and how, to change the name of a Zone oder replace it with a new one with the new name?

Hello @Schwarzer 

If you change the name of the Zone in panorama, it will (at least that's my experience from ~1 year ago) change all and every object with the same name. Even if this is OK for you, you might end up with the situation that "device groups" and "templates" are not installed at exactly the same time. Policies require a zone which does not yet exist, or interface is bound to a zone where no rule has this zone listed (hence not granting traffic).

We created a new zone with the new name, added this zone to all rules where required and pushed the config to the firewalls. Once this was done we replaced the zone on the interface(s) and pushed again.
