    I'm disappointed that the old Forum can not be kept around longer in some sort of read only mode.
    There is still a ton of useful info there.

    The server OS and Database are too old and our IT department must decommission them for compliance reasons.

    I do apologize about losing the old data, WatchGuard is focused on replying to this community and with your immense help the community will be full of useful information in no time.

  • Just realized that it was gone. Can only agree with Bruce_Briggs that many years of knowledge is lost and there must have been ways to keep it in read only mode.

  • Now I understand why I can't find it. That's a shame. All the old posts completely missed?

  • Totally gone

  • This is such a HUGE shame. I had a lot of threads in there where I posted solutions to my own problems as a resource. Now those are all gone. :(

    What I would like to suggest is someone at Watchguard simply make PDFs of every thread and add it to the knowledgebase or as a downloadable resource here.

    Forum communities are great for the crowdsourced knowledge they build up and when these systems are removed, a tremendous amount of knowledge is lost.
