Anybody else has some issue with the renaming of the port IDs on new appliances?
For example on the new F18 the ports are named p1, p2, etc. instead of port1 port2... Support told us this will be the case for all new appliances (F180, F280...)
This complicates everything, it even break things like if you have a FW Rule with a Nat Connection type "From Interface" which are needed in some scenarios (We do have them). Now we have to run 2 different rulesets because of the renaming or what?
In addition to that, monitoring systems will detect the new port labels as completely new interfaces, so customers lose all historical data if they don't consolidate them. (Also our setup -> awesome).
Who of you thought this would be a good idea? At least provide some backwards compatibility or whatever... but this move was unnecessary.
Please fix this
