Currently, there is no way to rename a box in the Control Center.  The only way to do this is to:

  1. Create a PAR of the box
  2. Delete the box
  3. Import the PAR to create the box
  4. Give new name of the
  5. Do Not Activate yet
  6. rename the Virtual Server
  7. Then activate

As you can see, that's a few step to many for ONE simple task... to rename a box.

Use "move" and chose the same cluster as target. This works for us.

True for boxes but not virtual servers - they have to be moved to a different cluster first and then you can move them back

This feature would be very welcome.


We have several managed firewalls and in the beginning of our setup, a few years ago, most firewalls were kept with the default "S1" virtual server name.

But now one of the managed firewalls needs a VPN connection to a large part of our managed firewalls. It's a total mess to move every virtual server to a different cluster and then move it back just to rename it.

Added bonus with this is that you need to move it to a cluster which is the same firmware version, otherwise it will mess things up and you can't move the server back to it's original location.


Please implement this feature, I saw it has been requested in 2011 already too.
