Domain Objects (FQDN) - An Unofficial ATRG

In 2018 I wrote an internal (Check Point) unofficial ATRG that covers Domain Objects in a lot more detail than sk120633 covers. I've discussed this document with our developers and confirmed all the details and was given permission to share this on CheckMates!    The attached document contains basic info on types of domain objects, Information on how domains are looked up and how often, cache of results, and troubleshooting steps with some API to confirm your usage.    This has since been updated to show the changes in 80.20 where the service, in my opinion, is super optimized and awesome!   Thanks for reading!   For the full list of White Papers, go here.

RADIUS Authentication problems with some Domains

Hello, In our company, we've got a MultiDomain Server with many domains inside it and I'm facing a really strange problem ...Today, I've configured the access via a Radius Server (FortiAuthenticator), which is NOW redirecting the authentication requests to a Domain Controller. Furthermore, before today, we could enter the MDS using local users placed on the FortiAuthenticator. Let's say I've just added a new step between the FortiAuthenticator and the Domain Controller, before that, the authentication was just made by the FortiAuthenticator (configured as a Radius Server in the MDS).Additionally, in our company we've got a HA solution based on an Active-Passive nodes, and two environments, lets call them North and South. Here is the thing, when I access the MDS with my Domain Controller username I can log into the Northern Nodes, but not into the Southern Nodes. In stead I got prompted with "Failed to connect to the server ...". Am I missing something? Is this a network problem, routing, firewalls... ? I don't really know how the authentication flows, so It might be.Thank you!!! David.

R80.10 Error Validation: The main group must contain IP-based objects only

Hi guysWe built up a test MDS to test the migration from R77.30 to R80.10. After some problems during the import, which we solved, we could start R80.10. But now we have the problem, that there are validation errors shown in the Dashboard for some groups with exceptions. The error messages are: "The main group must contain IP-based objects only" or "The exception group must contain IP-based objects only". Also we have same error messages for the exception group.We use this groups for the topology. So I understand, that it's not allowed to use other sub groups in the main or exception group in an exception group. But if I delete the sub groups, the error doesn't disappear. When I create a new exception group with belongs a main group with sub groups, I don't get this error. Has someone made the same experience and solved the problems? Thanks for your help.

R80.10 management server with r77.30 log servers

Hi, I have for the moment two Appliances ST-150-00 Under r77.30 who are used for Network Policy manager/endpoint Policy manager/logging.I have already build 2 new open server Under r80.10 as our new manager servers only and enable the High availability. Pre-Upragde_verification is fine.My wish is to import my database from r77.30 to r80.10 but keep logs under our old Appliance. The goal is during the upgrade process to keep our old server running for production with all gateways connected on it. and after the import of the db, under new management server connect only one Gateway,  for test.1, Is it possible to have a different version Under the log server and the network Policy manager?2, which steps should be done?Many thanks for your support.

Hit Count in R80.x

Have anyone here already reset the Hit Count in R80.x "following" sk111162 without run step1? Asking because the necessity of backup/delete the history files on the security gateways plus run cpstop/cpstart just to reset a counter sounds too much to me. Does anyone know the implication of run step 2 without 1?

in.emaild.mta high cpu usage

I'm seeing extremely high CPU usage form the in.emaild.mta that past 2 days. No significant changes have been made. Currently it's consuming %120 of cpu (5400, dual core). I've tried rebooting and failing over.  I'm not seeing much in the queue when running >tecli show emulator queue, but there are 4 items that are stack in there (we are using cloud), cloud queue is rolling through fast as well. I'm a little lost as to why the cpu usage has shot up. looking at the logs we're not seeing any significant increase in mail traffic.   fw ctl multik stat ID | Active | CPU | Connections | Peak ---------------------------------------------- 0 | Yes | 1 | 4738 | 9502 1 | Yes | 0 | 4738 | 9609

Mobile Access Role for Local users

Hi all,Regarding Unified Policy for Mobile Access, if I create access role with the local users. why should I integrate identity awareness in the gateway for the access role to work since here I am calling only the local users.Is it mandatory that the gateway should always connect to the AD for the access role which has local users or only for the first time identity awareness is required?

Integrate EPS standalone in R80.30 SMS

I believe this was addressed in the past, but I'd like to check the status on this.Since the integration of full-featured EPS into the R80.20/30 management, is there now an "easy" way to export EPS policies and packages to integrate them into an existing SMS. It would allow single management server along with log consolidation.I put "easy" between quotes because each migration is still a challenge, but I'm thinking of something along the lines of the R80.X migration tools.This is relevant to the many customers who come from the R77.30.03 world where it was necessary to maintain a separate server and could now benefit from integration.

Changing ISP - With/Without Topology

Hi,We are changing our backup ISP and we have got the process in place but just wanted to triple check that on the cluster object we select 'get interfaces without topology' after the IP change instead of 'with topology'. It's just a simple interface IP/NAT/ARP rule change. Having looked on here, it seems that 'with topology' isn't the way to go!
