While settings can be exported from one SonicWall to another, not every model of SonicWall is compatible with all others. Similarly, some firmware versions are not compatible with subsequent versions as new features were added or changes were made to existing features. This article details which settings files are supported to and from each SonicWall UTM device to help administrators avoid possible settings corruption from unsupported settings Imports.
To learn more see Importing Configuration Settings located in the SonicOS 6.5 Upgrade Guide.
