Best Practice or How do others Replace Fireboxes in WSM SERVER

Hi there,
I wanted to start a discussion with other WG managers, what is the best way you replace Fireboxes in your Watchguard System Manager Server???

I feel like I might be doing something wrong but I haven't found any doco on this anywhere.

We have many fireboxes in our WSM Server. When I replace them with new models, xtm25 to T30 to t35 to 40 etc etc....

The process we do is:

-add new device in house,
-ship it out,
-install it,
-delete the old one,
-update the IP in WSM serer
-boom there we go. all done.

But this removes the history of the old configs which a bit of a pain. we save the last current xml config but I just hate losing that old data.

Is there a better way of doing this?

I'm just trying to see if I'm doing it right, wrong, same as others.

Thanks for any responses all!!!

    Same here. Logging is related to the serial number so this is gone and configration files in wsm, i belive is related to a index number, so they are also lost.

    Thanks Robert. At least I know I'm not the only one doing it this way.
