Our customer's wants to upgrade his environment from R77.30 to R80.20.
Problem is: he has a VSX cluster with cluster members named 'fw1' and 'fw2'. After importing the SMS database to a new R80.20 management server the Validations tab tells us that "more than one object named fw1 exists" (the other being a default service FW1).
Long story short: we have to rename VSX cluster member 'fw1' before we can consider upgrading. In my lab I experimented with vsx_util:
- vsx_util add_member to add a Dummy gateway
- vsx_util remove_member to remove fw1
but this can't be used: "A previous remove member operation did not complete for..." because there is no SIC with the Dummy gateway, which also prevents policy installs to the remaining VSX member.
TAC told us to use vsx_provisioning_tool (and to contact Professional Services 🤔), but after reading the documentation and testing some commands I don't see how that would work.
