No, you can't change the ASM policy name in running mode. Best option is to create fresh policy on f5 and assign during non-business hour.

Or, change in vi mode and re-load configuration but its not advisable.

Thanks

I think you can export the policy and perform edits on the XML file for the name. I think there are 3 different places I update the name. Then you can upload and assign to a Virtual Server. This would keep any changes you have made to the policy.

The approach I would recommend is to Export the existing ASM policy (binary export)

Security ›› Application Security : Security Policies : Active Policies

Select the Policy

Click Export

Create a new policy with the desired policy name.
Then Import the exported policy file to replace the newly created policy.

Security ›› Application Security : Security Policies ›› Import Security Policy

You can then change any the virtual servers to refer to the new ASM policy, and finally delete the old one.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. The problem is that I am unable to export the ASM Policy. I believe it is due to the name. Current name of AM Policy is like: abc.testing.com:1234

Whenever I tried to export it simply given the message "couldn't export".

What version ASM are you running on?

What version of ASM did you create the policy on?

It is possible that you have created a policy with a name that prevents the export function from creating the export file. Resolving this will be difficult, as the policy name is stored in a mysql database with the rest of the ASM policy.
The best approach will be via a F5 Support ticket, as the ASM Support engineer will request the ASM database dump, and can probably use that to determine a procedure to change the policy name without losing the policy configuration.
