Do the original groups still exist, or were they removed between import/export? (Export -> Delete -> Import, or Export -> Import without deleting?)
I believe you should be able to import/export on the SAME appliance, but I'll double check. I know we have an issue importing/exporting ACROSS appliances right now that we're digging into.
No, because of the BC testing, the rules were deleted (Export -> Delete -> Import)
Please keep us updated on what you find in the double-check. Also, is there a KB or something on the issue of importing/exporting across applications? In a version of a BC drill, we'd need to rebuild the appliance between the export and the import.
