Migrating From Standalone FW to Clustered Pair

  • So I have a standalone firewall on older hardware that I want to move to newer hardware and into a clustered pair. I had the new pair configured and replicating correctly until I decided to import the interfaces from the standalone. Looks like the import overwrote all of the existing interfaces that I had configured, including the CARP interface.

    So my question is has anyone gone thru this same process successfully? What was the process that you took? It almost seems like I need to manually recreate all of the interfaces and then I can import the firewall aliases and rules. If that works I would think I can then reconfigure all of the interfaces and move their IPs to Virtual IPs. Does that all sound right? Is there anything that I'm missing?
