Management: Add GUID in ASG Backup
a) When replacing a broken hardware with a new ASG box by importing a backup, the new box will receive a new GUID although everything else stays the same. The new ASG will show up in ACC with the same name but as a seperate machine. You can not tell them from each other to decide, which one to delete.
b) It looks like even with factory reset, the GUID for a box stays the same after installing a completely different backup.
Since ACC references ASG boxes by GUID, it will keep the new installed box with the old name in it's views.
This feature has been released as part of Sophos UTM Manager (SUM) 4.0
ive tested this feature in SUM4 with a V8.305 but it didnt work. Will this feature only be availibe for UTM9?
