Datacenter objects on gateway, management down
If my management goes down - is there a chace timeout for the objects used by the gateway ? I do understand that object not will be updated.. but is there a time it will stop woring on the gateway ?
Will it just keep working with the info provided my management, until other notice given ?
to my understanding.
If we use datacenter-object ( as an example maybe from VMware vcenter ), these objects does expire after 3 days with no contact with Check Point management ( SMS ) ?
How about the rules with datacenter-objects , they are deleted, the datacenter-objects will be removed ?
How about if the SMS has a problem with vcenter connection, same TTL occurs ?
Looks like we should monitor these connections.
And yes, if the Controller will not push updates to the GW for 3 days the objects will expire. The rules won't be deleted but on the GW they will not enforce.
For Monitoring, there are logs in SmartConsole. And starting with R80.40 you can also get alerts from SmartEvent.
