R80.x - Debug policy installation on gateway

There is a simple way to debug the policy installation on a gateway.

1) Log on to the management server

2) Opens the expert mode

# expert

3) Staret the debug into a text file

# export INTERNAL_POLICY_LOADING=1
# fwm -d load <POLICY> <GATEWAY> &> test.txt

4) Now you can analyze the installation issue in the textfile text.txt. Now it takes a bit of experience to find the issue.

Add  this to a file for example to installpolicy.sh.

# vi /home/admin/installpolicy.sh

export INTERNAL_POLICY_LOADING=1
fwm load <POLICY> <GATEWAY> 

Now set +x to this file:

# chmod +x installpolicy.sh

Now set this file as cronjob!

One extra step to debug policy loading from the CLI now...

It is very interesting that you can install the policy via CLI.

We have many firewalls in Australia and the policy installation takes a long time.

Then I can perform the installation at night script controlled.

Hi @James_Hawkins 

Yes it is possible. I use this to install policys in China every night via cronjob.

Additional way to run policy installation automatically is by running from the gateway:

fw fetch local

The gateway will then fetch the last policy that was installed from the mgmt.

Working from clish as well as from expert mode.
