A few basic questions/tests:

Is this on a system where you had logging before? Did anything change recently?

Check all logging (and other) processes are up and running [cpwd_admin list]

Check processes on Security Gateway sending logs (cpwd_admin list, cpstat fw -f log_connection)


Also, check these helpful SKs for troubleshooting logging issues:

Practical troubleshooting steps for logging issues - sk38848


Troubleshooting Check Point logging issues when Security Management Server / Log Server is not receiving logs from Security Gateway - sk40090




I found in the past that what works is one of 2 below things (not always recommended, but they do work)

1- create a dummy duplicate cp host ( NOT regular host, but the one where it lets you choose it as logging server) and then once you save that, go to logs under firewall and add that new object as logging server (just give it same IP as actual mgmt object). Install database, push policy. If logging works, then leave it like that for 24 hours, then delete dummy object and revert back to old config.

2- edit $FWDIR/conf/masters file on affected gateway and change name in all 3 fileds to actual mgmt IP address reflected in dashboard object. Also, apply below sk:


Alternatively, please follow what @Tal_Paz-Fridman mentioned, those are all valid points.
