Hi all


New to all of this so be gentel.


We current have an SSG20 and want to upgrade to an SRX210.

Is it possible to copy the configuration from the old box to the new one.


Many thanks

Welcome to the Jnet forums.


The short answer is no, you cannot simply copy a configuration.  But there are some tools to help ease the transition.


There is a basic configuration translator on the support site.  You can run your SSG configuration through this and get a number of basic settings converted.  But this will not do everything and is not perfect so must be reviewed.  But it is generally a good start.


Chapter 8 in this migration guide reviews how the tool works and what it can and cannot do.


Now you have a list of unsupported feature conversions that you need to research for the device.


Also remember that licenses are different.  So contact your reseller to see if you can get credit for any existing license and what the equivalent Junos version of feature licenses you use.
