Cannot create Zone with same name as Physical port
I would like to create a zone called "dmz", my FG100D will not let me as it conflicts with a "duplicate" name dmz under physical ports. I changed the Switch mode to physical. Is this possible to rename the physical port to stop this Zone naming conflict.
100D # conf vdom
100D (vdom) # edit V1
100D (V1) # config system zone
100D (zone) # edit
name Zone name.
100D (zone) # edit dmz
the name "dmz" conflicts with a system interface of the same name
node_check_object fail! for name dmz
value parse error before 'dmz'
Command fail. Return code -553
100D (zone) #
100D # conf glo
100D (global) # conf sys int
100D (interface) # edit
dmz static 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 down disable physical
ha1 static 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 up disable physical
ha2 static 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 up disable physical
No I don't think it's possible to rename the physical ports. I use zones a lot in order to abstract the physical and logical connections- if a change to the physical connections on a device becomes necessary, i don't have to completely rework the ruleset.
What i do is name the different interface items with a suffix for what it is. For example, there's the physical interface DMZ as well as DMZ_VLAN and DMZ_ZONE. That is probably your best bet.
