This feature is "off by default" in R80.10 and you need to enable it, however we feel like it can save you from making a huge mistake!
In this example, the gateway "smesg" has the policy Standard installed. The user attempts to install a different policy - "SimpleOpenPolicy" on that gateway. He will face with this warning message:
The "reason" message is mandatory and will appear in the audit logs.
How to enable this feature:
Open SmartConsole.exe.config and change <add key="OverridePolicyWarningEnable" value="false"/> from false to true
SmartConsole.exe.config is in the directory of your SmartConsole client application - usually at C:\Program Files (x86)\CheckPoint\SmartConsole\R80.10\PROGRAM
Q: Why is this off by default??
A: This is a "beta" feature, and user experience for this scenario may change in our next releases.
