DFW rules change order unexpectedly when published (2146471)

  • 0 Ratings


When there are firewall rules defined in the Security Policies through Service Composer, the DFW rules order change unexpectedly when published.


This issue is resolved in VMware NSX for vSphere 6.3.0, available at VMware Downloads.

To work around this issue if you do not want to upgrade, synchronize the Firewall config through the NSX Security Policy UI.
  1. Log in to the vCenter Server using the vSphere Web Client.
  2. Navigate to Networking and Security > Service Composer > Security Policies.
  3. Select the Actions menu.
  4. Select Synchronize Firewall Config. The rules should be corrected in their original order.

Note: To avoid this issue, do not use the Filter in the NSX User Interface (UI) when publishing firewall rules.
