Backup/Restore to different hardware issues



    1. For some reason, I had to go in and edit all the virtual IPs and click save. I didn't need to modify anything though. Up until then only the main WAN IP would work.
    2. Onboard broadcom NIC registered, but would not pass traffic. I threw a 3COM NIC in there and it worked immediately.


  • When you need to update many interface settings or virtual ips, the best and fast way is to manualy edit XML.

    To apply changes, restore backup with this XML or copy it to pfsense and reboot.
