Trying to Create new Firewall Policy

I am learning how to install a RAP and am using the VRD for that. I am to the section where I need to add a Firewall Policy using the GUI and am stuck. I go to the Configuration tab, Security > Access Control > Policies. I select ADD to add a new policy, type in the name and select SESSION as the policy type. But there is no ADD button to add rules, and there is no save button to create the policy. OS version is I am sure I am missing something, just not sure what it is.


Thanks - John

I am assuming that you have the Policy Enforcement Firewall installed?

Re: Trying to Create new Firewall Policy

Is this a multi-controller environment? If so, be sure you're on the master.

Re: Trying to Create new Firewall Policy

Are you doing it from the Master controller or Local controller ?
Thank you

Re: Trying to Create new Firewall Policy

Thanks Colin Joseph! No need for a screen shot as you hit the nail on the head. While I do have PEF, I had not yet installed the license. Once I did that I am now able to add the necessary policies. And to the others, thank you as well. Yes, I am working on the master controller.


On to the next issue. I am sure I will be back, so please stay tuned! :-)
