Synchronizing Firewall Configuration with NSM

The management status of a firewall changes to Unmanaged state when the firewall is locally modified. You need to synchronize firewall configuration with NSM to set the device in Managed state.

To synchronize firewall configuration with NSM

  1. Navigate to Manager View | Firewalls > Inventory.
  2. Click the Ellipses icon in the Action column for the firewall you want to synchronize the changes with NSM, and select Synchronize Firewall.
  3. In the Synchronize Firewall dialog, click Review Diff.
  4. In the Device Synchronization wizard:
    1. Review the configuration differences between NSM configuration and the local firewall configuration.

    2. Click Next.
    3. Review the pending commits.

    4. Click Synchronize.
    5. Click OK in the dialog.

      Synchronization process runs.

    6. Click Close.

The firewall is now managed by NSM, thus the CONFIGURATIONstatus changes to Managed in the Firewall Inventory page.
