We recently bought a NetWall 6000 Series appliance and we want to migrate from an older NetWall W50, running cOS Core version 13.xx with its configuration to the new unit. How can we accomplish this?
When moving a configuration between dissimilar hardware with different Ethernet ports and/or Ethernet port names, download the hardware migration wizard from https://my.clavister.com under Downloads → Tools & Utilities → Clavister Hardware migration wizard.
Load your current configuration backup into the Migration Wizard, select the target mode, map the interfaces and continue through the remaining migration wizard steps. When completed, a migrated configuration will be provided which can then be restored onto the new appliance (e.g. 6000 Series).
The current limitation in the Migration Wizard is that it is not possible to migrate to a Virtual Firewall (it is possible to migrate FROM a virtual environment to an appliance). The main reason why this is not supported in the wizard is due to the target hardware uses custom hardware settings as it depends on the bus, ports, slots etc. allocated by the compute node / host (Hypervisor)
Hardware Replacement Documentation
A document called the NetWall Hardware Replacement Guide describes the migration wizard in more depth and also describes the hardware replacement procedures for almost all types of replacement scenarios. This document is included as a PDF with each release documentation package or the latest version in HTML format can be found online at docs.clavister.com in the NetWall section.
