Snort Configuration lost after upgrade pfSense from 2.0 to 2.0.1
we have done a upgrade from
pfSense 2.0 with Snort 2.9 pkg v. 2.0
pfSense 2.0.1 with Snort 2.9.1 pkg v. 2.1.1
After the upgrade the complete snort configuration is missing.
I have a backup of the old configuration (configure.xml) beforde the upgrade.
btw.: It seems that my supress rules <suppresspassthru>-Tag ist stored encrypted in the backup…
Is there a way to import these settings without
configure snort manually again or edit the xml backup?</suppresspassthru>
I have manual edited the config.xml and pasted the old snortconfiguration within the tag <snortglobal>…
Then I restored this configuration in Diagnostics->Backup->Restore.
There is no option to choose "Snort" as restore area, so I have to choose "ALL".
After that system reboots and reinstalls all packages, the snort configuration is lost again.
That's where I started... ??? ??? ???
The only way to solve this:
I restored my old configuration in a Virtual Machine System, then I could copy my supress list from the webinterface
