Vsys are configured as a part of templates in Panorama.

Vsys contains interfaces and policies and there are certain interdependencies that could pose challenges when committing the configuration.


Step 1. On Panorama, remove references of objects (configured under Device Groups) from Template.


Example: Reference of Logforwarding Profile in Zones. Set the log forwarding profile to None.

Step 3. Delete contents of the Device Group and commit the empty device group to the Panorama and Managed Firewall.


Step 4. Delete Template entries like interface zones etc and commit to Panoram and Template on the Managed Firewall.


Step 5. Remove the Device Group from Shared policy and commit on Panorama.
