migrating from wg fb1000 to x500e series
Posted on 2009-07-06
I realize there is no true migration path from the older fb1000 and you have to configure the x500e from scratch... I have downloaded the correct wsm and fireware sw versions and installed on my new management console IT server on the existing nw. My fb 1000 is in place as normal with a simple cisco 1700 series as a passthrough with t1 feed. The fb1000 has one dmz with one webserver off of it; this is al live and prodution setup for our office and has been for years. My hope is to configure the new x500 and then switch out the two pliances and flush my arp on my cisco router. 1. does this sound right, two and most importatnly can I configure the x500, starting the wizard on the management console, with the x500 only plugged into the trusted LAN without disturbing my existing connections b/w my old fb1000, router, and and lan(switches)? I'm not sure if I actually need to have it in place off the cisco, etc... ? I'm trying to avoid...
