Vmware ESXI lab

Jump to solution

Hi everybody

Please allow me to ask for a suggestion regarding the following issue:

I try to make a R80.40 Checkpoint lab, on a VMWare vSphere 5 Hypervisor, with plenty of hardware resources.

I try to follow as much as possible the guides:

1. I had created a VM with Windows 7 as management console PC.

2.I had created a VM and installed R80.40 as a Management Server.

3. I created 2 new VM's FW1 and FW2 and installed R80.40 as Gateways, and configured SIC communication with server.

4. From Smartconsole can acces the Management server and tried to add those 2 GW's. When I put the name FW1 and FW2, the server returned an error that those 2 names already exist, so I put FW12 and FW22. In Smrtconsole all 3 Objects look connected and fine.

5. I put the license in Management server, Publish and try to apply policy to GW's. Install policy failed all the time. Server Management get the license. The GW's don't.

6. I try to ping GW's from PC, no response. Ping from GW's to PC is ok.

 

So my problem can be reduced to the following: ping from pc to GW, and install policy fail.

 

Any help is appreciated.

Best regards

Try ssh to GWs and issue fw unloadlocal on each one, then try policy install again !

Background: With no policy defined, GWs will have a default policy of any any drop ! If you install policy after establishing SIC this should not happen.
