Difference between a Check Point Gateway Object and a Check Point Host Object

Hello community,

Some month ago we migrated our Security Management Servers and the dedicated Log Server from two R77.30 VMs to two R80.10 Smart-1s 3150, defining the second Smart-1 as Secondary-Standby Security Management Server & Primary Log Server.

Only now, we noted that actually the Primary Active is defined as Check Point Host Object, while the Secondary Standby as Check Point Gateway, but the Object Properties are exactly the same, i.e. the ones of a Management Server. The activity was performed by a PS Consultant.

Sure we now what the function of a Gateway is, but does anybody knows the difference difference between a Check Point Gateway Object and a Check Point Host Object? Is it here the case of a "human error" while importing the Secondary Standby as "Check Point Gateway Object"?

 

Thank you

 

Dario
