View Full Version : Provider-1 upgrade_export? Is it possible?

2008-01-10, 23:51

According to sk33878, it has the following premise:

Upgrade_export on VPN-1 Power/UTM and/or Provider-1 NGX R65 HFA_01 & HFA_02 fails with error: "Unable to read local configuration info"

is "upgrade_export" supported in Provider-1 environment? I was told by
checkpoint sometimes ago that "upgrade_export" is NOT supported in
a P-1 environments? What changes?

Is this a case of checkpoint getting sloppy?

with provider-1 the only way to export and import backups is via mds_setup, here you can choose between back or restore.
Or you can directly use mds_backup/mds_restore to export/import your configuration.

I used mds_back and mds_restore all the time so I know.

I am specifically referrring to upgrade_export/upgrade_import in Provider-1
environment. Checkpoint sk33878 seems to imply that it can be done.
