Busy Week Coming Up

@_Val_ and I were NOT on the road this past week, but we've both got full dance cards coming up. In addition, there are also CheckMates events happening in Denver next week. See the complete list below! 

Community Highlights

Here are the threads to watch from the last week:

Latest Releases

CheckMates Member of the Month for April 2019: Jerry Szpinak

Been quite a while since we've done one of these.

Easy execute CLI commands from management on gateways!

This has been possible for a while, this just puts a "familiar" interface on it.

Logical Interface as Next Hop for Routes on Cluster Members that DO NOT use VIPs in Different Subnet

This is generally not a good idea.

Show Total Number of Objects in Database For R77.x and Earlier

Pretty easy with the ye olde objects_5_0.C

Jumbo Hotfix Versions Between Firewall and Management

Ideally they should be the same or higher.

Missing Cleanup Rule When a Rule is Definitely Set

A cleanup rule has a fairly specific definition.

Nat Rule over Tunnel/Community

If you want to do NAT across a VPN, make sure you haven't disabled it in the community.

Configuration Migration From 4200 Appliance to 4800 Appliance

While trying to maintain similar versions.

Fetch Changed Policy from Management to Gateway

When the existing policy doesn't let you fetch it.

Cannot Connect with SmartConsole to R77.30 or Earlier Management

It keeps coming up as people do fresh installs of R77.30 and earlier.
