last year i had installed the XG 17.5 with a temporary PortE0 IP (192.168.0.240) for Migration of the old UTM Firewall.After a few weeks all was fine, i had several Publishing rules, some mail rules, VPN, STAS, User Portal and some more.
I added a Alias IP PortE0:2 (192.168.0.254) and removed the old UTM.
Now i would like to remove the Default IP or SWAP PortE0 with PortE0:2
I know, if i remove an alias, all associated rules are gone (had this in an early test).
What will happen if i Change the PortE0:2 IP to a new temporary IP (192.168.0.239)..
Wait a few minutes or reboot the XG and Change the PortE0 IP to 192.168.0.254, later i can Change the alias IP to 192.168.0.240
Has anyone done this yet?
No, I never tried to be honest.
When you try to edit the IP, you should be warned of the things that are affected. Take a backup, before making any change.
