Upgrade with non-Unicode characters

I have a R77.30 that I'd like to upgrade to R80. When I run the pre_upgrade_verification tool it comes back with the error "Objects with non-Unicode characters" in the tables network_objects and sem_network_objects. I went through the object names of every item in both tables but couldn't find a non-unicode character. I don't want to use non-unicode characters anyway, so I'd change them to be compatible if I knew which objects we're talking about. How can I find out which object exactly causes this issue?

sk114739 provides the solution and utility you are looking for.

Re: Upgrade with non-Unicode characters

Hello,

sk114739 doesn't provide solution, just workaround.
The original question was how to FIND those objects.
If the pre-verified was able to identify them, why not simply show all the objects which contains non-Unicode characters ?

Kind regards,

Re: Upgrade with non-Unicode characters

Well, in my Check Point Support Tools - Top 10 you'll find a tool called Confwiz that easily exports all R77.30 objects into XML files. You can very easily grep for Non-Unicode characters with any advanced Text Editor.

Re: Upgrade with non-Unicode characters

Confwiz is definitely "not supported" anymore, though I guess it will still work for the task. Seems like this is an area for improvement, though.

Re: Upgrade with non-Unicode characters

Hi,

So the Easiest way to get these nasty non unicodes are the confwiz?
We have tried to run the regex's against the mgmt backup objects_5_0.C, but no cigar.

Is the confwiz a readonly tool?
