Remove Firewall from Centralized Management

Hello, I have a Watchguard T20 that is centrally managed and would like to remove the firewall from the management. When I log on to the firewall, I get the following message: The Firebox is under Centralized Management. While under Centralized Management, local configuration of the Firebox is not permitted. The system will be in read-only mode. Click here to remove this device from Centralized Management.

If I remove the firewall, do I keep the local configuration ?

    Keep in mind that clicking OK to that prompt only puts the device in local-managed mode. The management server can still connect to it and make changes. If you'd like to completely remove it from centralized management, you must go to Setup -> Managed Device Settings, and uncheck centralized management.
