Sic issue for new firewall!!!!!Helpppp!!

Jump to solution

So i was given a new firewall to configure, will be attaching the screenshot of the issue as well, its a checkpoint 1550 appliance and for some reason there seems to be an sic issue, im able to establish trust between the firewall the management server(primary) but when i click "Test SIC Status" then it shows "Peer sent wrong DN" , what on earth is going on? I tried resetting SIC numerous times but to no avail. So because of this SIC issue im not able to "get interfaces" for the topology and cannot install policy on the firewall as well!!

This firewall is using R80.20 and the mgmt servers are using R80.20 as well.

You need to be using either R80.40 or R80.30 with JHF 107 or above.

I suspect the reason you're seeing this error is that you're using R80.20, which cannot manage 1500 series appliances.

That would be a tedious process lol as im pretty sure we have a bunch of 1100 series firewall lying around so it would be easier to just use those.

Keep in mind the 1100's go EoL in 2022.
