    Default Where does SmartView Monitor store custom views

    On a monitoring Desktop we use SmartView Monitor to display the status of our gateways on a big screen.
    We use a local windows user (secmonitor) to run the SmartView GUI.
    We customize our view and save it using "gateways --> save to Tree --> Monitor
    However, when we restart the GUI, the saved view "Monitor" is no longer available. Argghh....

    ems to be a problem, that our local monitoring user (secmonitor) has not enough rights to store the view.

    What rights are required to store the view, or where is that view stored?

    I can't tell you where its stored, but i can tell you how to figure it out. Install procmon on a test machine, then run smartview monitor, then procmon, attach procmon to smartview monitor and then quickly do a save on the view. procmon should show you just about everything the process did.

    This is assuming it really does save. Maybe launch it as admin just to make sure it will save with correct perms.

    Problem solved
    the Check Point User needs full admin privs in order to be able to "Write" to disk when storing a view
