This article provides information about the design limitation of NSM domain pre and post rules being limited to 250 rules each. 
  • Pre-rules and post-rules are two sets of rules of any rulebase type, which can be created for any domain.

  • Configuration of pre/post rules is located in the main navigational tree under Policy Manager > Central Manager Policies. Domain Administrators can edit domain level policies from this option.

  • Pre rules applied before any rules of a rulebase are applied to a device and post rules applied after any rules of a rulebase are applied to a device.

  • Pre rules and post rules in the integrated view are not editable.

  • There is only one instance of pre/post rules for a specific domain.

  • Domain hierarchy is used when applying pre/post rules to sub-domains. Within any sub-domain, global domain pre rules take precedence over sub-domain pre rules, which take precedence over Security policy specific rules.

  • Similarly, Security policy rules take precedence over sub-domain post rules, which take precedence over global domain post rules.

There is no mention of Domain Pre- and Post- rule limits in documentation.
 In NSM Policy Manager, a user can create Domain based Pre- and Post- rules. There is a limit of 250 rules for each pre rule and post rule in a domain. The policy numbering is also limited to specific ranges as specified below:
  • Sub-Domain Pre-Rules: 998750 to 998999

  • Sub-Domain Post-Rules: 998500 to 998749

  • Global Domain Pre-Rules: 999250 to 999499

  • Global Domain Post-Rules: 999000 to 999249

  • CM Pre-Rules: 999750 to 999999

  • CM Post-Rules: 999500 to 999749
