Firewall Block After Editing Aliases



  • Hi

    I just removed several hosts from several alias groups. After I was done I pressed apply. Some rules which contained mentioned alias groups then stopped working.  I fixed it by opening the affected alias groups and saving them again, without any modification.
    In my experience the modification of aliases usually doesn't cause interruptions on affected rules (unless I delete the wrong hosts of course). This was unexpected and caused downtimes on the customer end.

    This happened on release 2.2.4.

    Does anyone know whether if this is a known issue and whether it is fixed in newer releases?

    I couldn't find anything related but it is also a bit difficult to come up with a meaningful search query. Sorry if redundant
    Thanks

    No idea.  That release is more than 2 years old.  You should already have upgraded it by now.
