Expire the Lease for a Managed Device

You can use the WSM Expire Lease tool to force your managed Firebox or XTM devices to contact the Management Server for new DVCP tunnel information. You can choose to expire the lease for an individual device, or for more than one device at the same time.

Expire the Lease for One Device

You can choose to expire the lease for an individual device from two locations: the Tools section on the Device page, or the device context menu.

To expire the lease from the Device page:

  1. Select the Device Management tab.
  2. Expand the Devices tree and select a device.
    The Device Management page appears.
  3. In the Tools section, click Expire Lease.
    The Expire Lease dialog box appears.
  4. Click OK.
    The Management Server lease for the managed device is automatically expired and any VPN or configuration changes are downloaded. A confirmation dialog box does not appear.

To expire the lease from the device context menu:

  1. Select the Device Management tab.
  2. Expand the Devices tree and select a device.
    The Device Management page appears.
  3. Right-click the device and select Expire Lease.
    The Expire Lease dialog box appears.
  4. Click OK.
    The Management Server lease for the managed device is automatically expired and any VPN or configuration changes are downloaded. A confirmation dialog box does not appear.

Expire the Lease for Many Devices

If you have more than one managed device, you can expire the lease for one or more of your devices at the same time.

  1. Select the Device Management tab.
  2. In the left navigation bar, select the Management Server.
    The Management Server page appears.
  3. Right-click the Management Server and select Expire Lease.
    The Expire Lease dialog box appears. By default, the check box for all Firebox X Edge 10.x and Fireware XTM managed devices is selected.
  4. Clear the check box for any device for which you do not want to expire the lease.
  5. Click OK.
    The Management Server lease for the managed device is automatically expired and any VPN or configuration changes are downloaded. A confirmation dialog box does not appear.

Expire the Lease for Devices in a Device Folder

If you have devices grouped in a folder in the Devices tree, or devices in the Pending folder, you can expire the lease for one or more of the devices in the folder at the same time.

On the Device Management tab:

  1. In the Devices tree, select a folder.
  2. Right-click the folder and select Expire Lease.
    The Expire Lease dialog box appears. By default, the check box for all managed devices in the folder is selected.
