Lets assume your antivirus profile is AV and you want to replace it with Antivirus.

 

admin@PA-VM> set cli config-output-format set
admin@PA-VM> configure
Entering configuration mode
[edit]
admin@PA-VM# show rulebase security | match AV
set rulebase security rules Test1 profile-setting profiles virus AV
set rulebase security rules Test2 profile-setting profiles virus AV
set rulebase security rules Test3 profile-setting profiles virus AV
set rulebase security rules Test4 profile-setting profiles virus AV
[edit]
admin@PA-VM#

 

Copy lines that start with "set" to notepad.

Replace all set entries with delete (CTRL+H to open replace window).

 

delete rulebase security rules Test1 profile-setting profiles virus AV
delete rulebase security rules Test2 profile-setting profiles virus AV
delete rulebase security rules Test3 profile-setting profiles virus AV
delete rulebase security rules Test4 profile-setting profiles virus AV

 

Paste result into cli window

Now change delete to set again and replace all AV entries with Antivirus.

 

Paste output back into cli window.

set rulebase security rules Test1 profile-setting profiles virus Antivirus
set rulebase security rules Test2 profile-setting profiles virus Antivirus
set rulebase security rules Test3 profile-setting profiles virus Antivirus
set rulebase security rules Test4 profile-setting profiles virus Antivirus

 

And commit.

Hi clewis,

 

You could export your configuration then do a find and replace in the XML. Be careful with this though and make sure you take a backup.

 

For the future you may want to use Security Profile Groups. That way you just modify the profile in the group and it will change the rules that use this group.

 

hope this helps,

Ben
