Firewall not accept new password for user

Hi All,

 

Today we changed a password for one of the firewall because it's password got expired. After changing the password, firewall not allows to login into it using that password. 

The user is not a self-created user ( eg admin/monitor) 

We tried to change the password, copying the password-hash value from different firewall, Restarting checkpoint services, rebooting the firewall, deleting the user and again creating it but nothing work. 

We temporary created new user and gave it to the client. 

 

in var/log/messages file i am getting login denied for user from IP but that ip doesn't belong to my system. Maybe client is trying to access. but when i try to access, i can't see any denied logs.

This is the 2nd firewall on which we are facing the issue.

Gateway R77.30

Hotfix - Take_216 is installed.

 

Please suggest.

 

Thanks

When you copy a hashed Password make sure to copy it from a same version gateway, otherwise the password will not be accepted.

Hi Maarten_Sjouw,

 

The password was copied from same GW version. That GW is part of cluster with the GW that has issue.

Then the only other possibility is that something went wrong with the copy and paste action, we paste hased passwords on a weekly base and the only problem I found so far was between versions R77.x and R80.x
