Package Repository - invalid extension

Hi,

looks like I do not understand the Package Repository approach.

Goal is to put Check_Point_R81.10_T335_Fresh_Install_and_Upgrade.tar to MDS R81.10 repository so that the gateways T80.40/R80.30 in several domains can pick up this package from management.

- Check_Point_R81.10_T335_Fresh_Install_and_Upgrade.tar has been uploaded to into global Package repository.

- Connect now into a domain and selecting package source: Management

- When now Check_Point_R81.10_T335_Fresh_Install_and_Upgrade.tar is selected. It tells: "Package has an invalid extension"

 

When I try to upload the package into DMS Package repository, it errors with message: "Unable to upload the package. Make sure you are connected through the global domain and try again."

 

What kind of packages extension is expected?

Is the approach correct?

Thanks

Regards

Upload to CheckPoint Management

[Expert@MDS:0]# find ./ -name Check_Point_R81.10_T335_Fresh_Install_and_Upgrade*
./var/log/CPda/repository/CheckPoint#Major#All#6.0#5#3#R81.10_ignis_main_T335/Check_Point_R81.10_T335_Fresh_Install_and_Upgrade.tgz

./var/log/PackageRepository/Check_Point_R81.10_T335_Fresh_Install_and_Upgrade/package/Check_Point_R81.10_T335_Fresh_Install_and_Upgrade.tar
./var/log/SOFTWARE/Check_Point_R81.10_T335_Fresh_Install_and_Upgrade.tar


So at the end
When I search in SmartConsole | Upgrade Version , there is a need to have the exact file name in tgz format

Check_Point_R81.10_T335_Fresh_Install_and_Upgrade.tar -> NOTHING found
Check_Point_R81.10*                                                                    -> NOTHING found
Check_Point_R81.10                                                                      -> NOTHING found
Check_Point_R81.10_T335_Fresh_Install_and_Upgrade.tgz  -> found


Digging into that, I can't see a browser issue.

However, doing now Package Verification for a specific gateway, it ends up with verification failed.
Package is not valid for installation on the relevant Security gateways.

b.t.w.

we used this package already multiple times on the same gateway model but with CPUSE/CLISH and it worked perfect.

Looks like I need to raise a TAC case.

Thanks again

Hi

The files which CheckPoint provides are in *.tar and have been uploaded to Global domain.

Browsing in a local domain did not work last week.

Therefore I tried to type in the  Check_Point_R81.10_T335_Fresh_Install_and_Upgrade.tar which gave no results.

After PhoneBoys tip, I typed in Check_Point_R81.10_T335_Fresh_Install_and_Upgrade.tgz and the image is then be shown.

Only using magnifying glass (search) does not work!  (MDS HA related???, Global domain only on primary MDS)

 

Next challenge:

Seeing now the image, selecting a cluster(5000series,R80.40)  an pressing 'Verify',.

It ends up with Verification failed: Failed to get the Cluster status from: ID=-1, IP=x.x.x.x, State=uninitialized

Needless to say the cluster is up and running and SIC is fine.

We used this package already multiple times on the same gateway model but with CPUSE/CLISH and it worked perfect.

Regards

It definitely has to be .tgz extension, otherwise, as @G_W_Albrecht said, it will not work.

Hi

 

  Actually, when you have the package in the repository you can select from the drop down. No need to search for the package (see image)

  It should be the tgz since when you upload a tar file the repository extracts it to a package (tgz) and some other data

  If it doesn't work - please send me a screenshot and let's handle it offline (boazo@checkpoint.com)

Try a different browser, the extension should be .tgz

Hi

Hm,

Microsoft EdgeVersion 109.0.1518.61 (Official build) (64-bit)

CheckPoint provides *tar and a download with MS edge saves as a tar.

The Download Wizard is wrong for CDT / Repository ! Download the .tgz in Repository using New... and the name as shown here:

How is this still a problem? It's kind of absurd that to download a tar package, we have to lie to the system and tell it to try to download a tgz. The package which is actually downloaded is a tar. Here's what ends up on the filesystem when I tell an MDS' Global domain to download "Check_Point_R81_20_JUMBO_HF_MAIN_Bundle_T65_FULL.tgz":

[Expert@SomeMds:0]# find / -name Check_Point_R81_20_JUMBO_HF_MAIN_Bundle_T65_FULL*   
/var/log/PackageRepository/Check_Point_R81_20_JUMBO_HF_MAIN_Bundle_T65_FULL
/var/log/PackageRepository/Check_Point_R81_20_JUMBO_HF_MAIN_Bundle_T65_FULL/package/Check_Point_R81_20_JUMBO_HF_MAIN_Bundle_T65_FULL.tar
