SonicOS 7 Getting Started Guide for NSsp 13700 and NSa Series

About Migration

The SonicWall Migration Tool was developed to help users easily migrate from an old firewall to the SonicWall Gen 7 firewalls. It helps ease conversion issues related to:

  • Transitioning to a target firewall with fewer interfaces
  • SFP (small form pluggable) module configurations
  • Internal wireless interfaces
  • WWAN configuration on USB ports
  • Gen 6 Global BWM (bandwidth management)
  • Internal switch limitations (for example, portshield not being allowed on certain ports in the new firewall)

The Migration Tool allows you to convert the settings from existing SonicWall Gen 6 and Gen 6.5 firewall. You can also use it to convert other brands to SonicWall firewalls. The Migration Tools supports these platforms:

Cisco PIX/ASAPIX 4.x, PIX 5.x, PIX 6.x, PIX 7.x, PIX 8.x
Check PointSmart Center, Provider-1 (excluding VPN-1 Edge, Safe@Office, SMP) with OS NG FP1 (4.0)
