Is it safe to clear old R77.30 directories after successfull upgrade to R80.10

Jump to solution

Hello all,

I have successfully upgraded management server from R70.30 to R80.10 few months ago. Analyzing disk space on /var/log partition I have found old SmartLog and Smart Event/Reporter directories using lot of space. They haven't been updated since upgrade:

15G   /var/log/opt/CPSmartLog-R77/data
15G   /var/log/opt/CPSmartLog-R77
1.1G   /var/log/opt/CPrt-R77/events_db/data/pg_xlog

60G   /var/log/opt/CPrt-R77/events_db/data/base/16384
41G   /var/log/opt/CPrt-R77/events_db/data/base/16837
101G   /var/log/opt/CPrt-R77/events_db/data/base
102G   /var/log/opt/CPrt-R77/events_db/data
102G   /var/log/opt/CPrt-R77/events_db
102G   /var/log/opt/CPrt-R77

So my question is, are they safe to be deleted?

Thanks in advance!

Regards,

It seems it is safe to delete those directories.

As no one has answered my question, and I needed to make some space i deleted all CP R77 related folders in /var/log/opt/

It is now almost 6 months gone after deleting and I don't see anything broken.

I did the same thing on few other upgraded management servers, and all is OK.

Hi,

There is a script from Check Point that can be used to delete package of old versions that are not deleted automatically after an upgrade (including R80/R80.10).

You can find all information in sk91060.

Hi Enis,

I'm aware of the sk91060, but the script is useless regarding this question.

If you read Notes after point 10. carefully it says:

Notes:

    The outputs should show only the latest version (to which the system was upgraded).

    These directories are not deleted:
        CPrt (Eventia products)
        CPinfo (CPinfo utility)
        CPuepm (Endpoint Security Server)
        CPda (CPUSE Deployment Agent)
        CPSmartLog (SmartLog)
        CPmds (Multi-Domain Security Management Server)

So my question still stands. Is it safe to delete those directories?

Regarding sk91060: Why script doesn't delete those directories?

Regards,

We are also seeing /var/log/opt/ directories using a lot of space. What was your resolution? Were you able to remove the CP R77 directories?

Hello all,

They are not 100% safe to delete.

Mind this article sk129292 if you find policy verification internal error, after the upgrade to R80.10.

Regards,
Francisco.
