can anyone share a document related to troubleshooting of management servers?

Was on a troubleshooting session with checkpoint and she seemed to use a bunch of complicated commands which i could not make notes of for the management server, apparently there was a solr service issue with the primary server and she issued a bunch of commands to find that out and then ultimately restart that process(there was also apparently a problem with cpm and she found that out by issuing another complicated command since when i used cpwd_admin list it showed cpm running so this part confuses the heck out of me) and then used a lot of other commands to make sure the servers are successfully synced with each other, so would be helpful if i get a document(im assuming all of this is CCSE level) that would state all complicated commands along with the explanation. Regards.

Integration between Sandblast Mobile and Endpoint Security Manager

In the interest of having visibility of all endpoints in a single pane of glass (traditional on-prem workstations and mobile devices alike) would it be possible to integrate Sandblast Mobile's central dashboard with that of the Endpoint Security Management server so that full visibility of all endpoints can be achieved on the latter?Many thanks in advance.

SMS Management Container License Utilization?

Pretty basic question that I couldn't find a concrete answer to on my own... Is there a way to see an accurate count of your consumption of a Management Container License. For example, if the container is for 25 GW's, I'd like to see how close I am to hitting that ceiling. At first glance, the obvious answer would be to just count the objects under "Gateways & Servers", but it is my understanding things like Clustered GWs, VSX Clusters & Objects (Virtual Switches, Routers) and Gateways in Scale Sets all may be counted or treated differently.  Thanks!

Smartconsole mgmt server issue

smartconsole doesnot detect the primary mgmt server.Tried restarting checkpoint services on both the mgmt servers also tried reboot on both but it does not seem to work, will attach the screenshot of the error.Created a service request with checkpoint but in the mean time before they call me it would be great if i could get some other troubleshooting tips.Will be attaching the screenshot as well.And also im able to connect to the mgmt server using putty, also just recieved a mail from the proficio team (its a siem tool) that they cannot connect to the mgmt server as well which is probably related to this issue.Thank you.

Issues with a scheduled backup

Hello guys, I have a customer who is having troubles when the scheduled backup is running. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn´t. The partition is around 66% so it is not a /var/log partition problem. As per the sk121212, it might be the TAR version 1.26 who is caussing issues and it suggests to downgrade the version to 1.15.1. The thing is that it does not say how to do it. Can someone knows the proceed to do it? Thank you and regards.

Smartconsole Admin Account - wrong password

Hi, have had a problem a few times with different versions of R80 where some admins on Smartconsole cannot login and you can see wrong password in the logs. The account is set not to expire and does not appear locked out until the enter the password a few times, problem is the user has not changed the password. You have to then logon with he original smartconsole admin and rest passwords. It happened once to all admins and couple of times with random admins.I think it might have coincided with upgrades and reboots of the management server, anyone else having this issue?
