Migrate import fails

Jump to solution

I have created a migrate file for a R77.30 SmartCenter then imported it to my server running R80.. When attempting to start SmartConsole I get a "General Error". I then started SmartUpdate "SmartDistributor" which states it cannot connect. The update error log contains:

The complete file is not posted as it is very big and contains information about a customers configuration.

The file upgrade_results contains 80004005

Server is a Pentiem 4 core 4gb memory.

What would be the next steps to take to find the problem.

Did you use the migrate binary from the target version (R80) on the R77.30 SMS to take the migrate export?  Using the migrate binary built into R77.30 for import into R80 will not work.  The latest migrate binary for R80 (dated 3/18/2016) that you'll need to use is here:

http://downloads.checkpoint.com/dc/filedetails.htm?ID=46651&product=R80&version=R80&os=GAiA&appID=CP...

Also if doing this in VMWare with a relatively small disk allocated, you'll almost certainly need to reallocate some disk space from the backup/upgrade partition into the Logs partition at Gaia load time to ensure you don't run out of disk space when attempting the import.

I used the upgrade tools for R80 dated 2/23/16.

May want to give the latest version of EA code (3/18/2016) a try on both your new server and the migrate utility.  This is EA after all...

It is available from the Early Availability R80 download section in the User Center, I don't remember seeing an email notification for this latest update.  Log in to the User Center then try to go here, you'll need to have been previously enrolled in the R80 EA to successfully download:

Re: Migrate import fails

Hi all

Just spent the last week trying to import the R77.30 exported database into freshly set-up R80 installation without success though pre_upgrade_verifier and of course the Check Point R80 upgrade simulation service stated that an upgrade should be possible...

On R77.30 I used all available migration tools (installed, pre-r80 and r80) to generate the export files.

On R80 I also used all three versions of migration tools with each of the three export files.

Now, after many more grey hairs I opend an SR and was told to ask our CCSP to solve the problem.

I thought Check Point would be more interested to help in such a case as they seem eager to push R80.

Re: Migrate import fails

The migrate import is finally done. Support found some strange error I won't even attempt to explain. They then informed me they used my uploaded migrate file and it worked. So I performed a clean install as instructed and did the migrate import - FAILS.

I then did another clean install T109 both times. Once the install was complete and rebooted I logged in and ran TOP - All 4 CPU were at 95+%. and were still at 95% after four hours so I waited until the next day. In the morning the usage was <10% so I ran migrate import. Success, however the import ran 4+ hours.

Lab machine Dell Inspiron 3252 4 core 4gb.

It appears patience is now required - which I have little of.

I could not have done it without Check Point support - Thanks guys.

If you got a lab machine - why not to try clean install + migrate db exactly after the migration failed first time.

Anywhere I'm happy that it a successful one Smiley Happy

Same problem here, used the R80 migration tool  on my R77.30 Management server, exported the backup, imported on the R80 Server, tried to import, waited 20 minutes and got an error Smiley Sad

Re: Migrate import fails

Hi all

Just like to thank CP support for their effort to solve my problem.

They even imported our R77.30 export files to their VM environment and tried the same steps I executed but surprisingly R80 migrate import worked in their environment...

The suspect was Unicode characters in the DB.

I had already tried the SK for encoding problems (Check_Point_R80_Encoding_Detection_sk109795) with the command "export CHECKPOINT_DB_ENCODING=CP1026" before but with no success.

I found three host objects in SmartDashboard (searching the "Object List" tab) which had a character like "ä", "ö" or "ü" in their comment.

But when I wanted to edit the objects, the comment field showed empty!

So I went though the database with GuiDBedit eliminating the characters in the comment string of the host object.

And guess what: migrate export from R77.30 and migrate import to new R80 server was successful!

Since then administrators have a lot of fun working with R80 at the same time...

One thing you should possibly be aware of: CP changed some service/protocol definitions in R80 and in some of our rules the obsolete service definitions were not correctly replaced and were missing after we pushed the policies to the gateways. ldap_tcp, winframe, web_proxy, tcp_high_ports or snmp_trap were some of them. Fortunately we had little trouble solving the situation. Very helpful was CPs "Web Visualization Tool" we used before migration...

Have fun

Cyrill
