How can I tell which hotfixes I have loaded on NG FP2 and above?



The installation script modifications make it possible to query the registry to validate whether or not a particular hotfix has been installed. Obviously, if a hotfix was installed without the use of the included installation script, this command will not show that the particular hotfix has been installed, but this should work provided you run the installation script. Since hotfixes for NG FP1 and before did not use an installation script, you cannot easily tell what hotfixes are loaded on these releases.

# ckp_regedit -p SOFTWARE/CheckPoint/FW1/5.0/Hotfixes
SOFTWARE/CheckPoint/FW1/5.0/Hotfixes : { HotFix_HF1=[s]1 HotFix_HF2=[s]1 HOTFIX_HFA_308=[s]1 HOTFIX_HFA_310=[s]1 }

In the above example from an NG FP3 system, Hotfix-1, Hotfix-2, HFA-308, and HFA-310 have been loaded in the order listed.

Alternatively, you may also use SmartUpdate to determine which hotfixes are loaded on the platform.
