SmartEvent Upgrade Issue

Hi,

Last week I upgraded a SmartCenter from R77.30 to R80.20.  The pre-upgrade verifier returned a long list of errors first, which I overcame, and the upgrade worked perfectly.

Today I'm trying to upgrade the SmartEvent appliance for the same customer.  The pre-upgrade verifier is failing with exactly the same errors as the SmartCenter - word for word.

I'm puzzled because the errors mostly related to either old policy packages (which I deleted from the SmartCenter before that upgrade would work), or other typical rulebase things - DHCP services, etc.  Nothing that should apply to a SmartEvent server.

The SmartEvent server is defined only as a Log server and SmartEvent server.  Not Network Policy Management.

I've installed the Database to SmartEvent but still get the same errors.

Obviously as it's SmartEvent I can't log in with Read/Write from SmartDashboard to delete the old policy packages, etc.  They shouldn't be on there anyway, which is why I'm confused.

Any ideas how to overcome this lot so that I can perform the upgrade?  I need to keep the previous log files and config, and I'm presuming an upgrade will do this "nicely" rather than doing a fresh install and having to copy Gb's of log files back on, and set up all the policy etc. again?

I'll paste the PUV output below for reference.  It's quite long.

Thanks,

Matt

2. In your Firewall policy, delete rules that contain the actions Encrypt or Client Encrypt.

If you have a specific case in which you have to use Traditional VPN mode, please contact Check Point support.

Title: Legacy DHCP Relay Services - Change in behavior in R80 and higher.
-----
* Description: Legacy DHCP Relay services were found in the security rule base. Action is required in order for DHCP Relay to function properly post-upgrade.

Two possible options to solve the problem:
1). Remove legacy DHCP Relay services and add new DHCP Relay services. See sk104114 for instructions. This is the recommended action if managing only R77.20 gateways and above.
2). Keep legacy DHCP Relay services and make changes to the Gateways and the Security Management Servers. See sk98839 for instructions. Do this if managing any gateways which are older than R77.20.

Legacy DHCP Relay service(s):
bootp, dhcp-relay, dhcp-rep-localmodule, dhcp-req-localmodule
 
Some of the legacy DHCP Relay service(s) are members of the following rulebase(s):
Policy ##AG-17May2005_1_1_1, rules: 49.
Policy ##DJ-05Oct2006-1_With_Sbox_tpl, rules: 60.

Re: SmartEvent Upgrade Issue

Did you install database to the log server when you had resolved the errors?

Re: SmartEvent Upgrade Issue

Hi Maarten,

Yes - database installed to Event, but it made no difference.

I opened an SR and two TAC enginners are stumped.  If I open SmartDashboard on the Event server, obviously it has limited tabs as it's not full NPM, but if you go File > Open it lists all of the old policies (the ones I deleted from the Mgmt server). 

File > Delete is greyed out, as you can only log in to Dashboard on Event in Read Only.

TAC kept trying to log in Read/Write, which of course you can't.  They've told me to do a clean install.  That's all very well but now I need to manually write down all the policy settings and manually recreate them again in R80.20.  I suspect I've got the TAC trainee division on my case 😞

Re: SmartEvent Upgrade Issue

In sk110267: R80.20 Upgrade Verification and Environment Simulation service we read:

Dedicated SmartEvent is not supported (refer to sk115056)

Also, sk110173: How to migrate the events database from SmartEventserver R7x to SmartEventR80 and above se... might be usefull.

I would assume that you need to do an Advanced Upgrade, no CPUSE upgrade....
