    Default How do I insert fw.log file from other firewall?

    Hi Guys,

    Just keen to know if fw.log taken from other firewall can be inserted in Database? I do have certain issues with the box hence created a separate VM and copied all that fw.log and relevant files hence keen to know if the file can be replayed on other machine to generate the reports in smart event?

    sure, copy the files to the mgmt server you want then run a fw repairlog LOGFILENAME.log. Then you can setup an offline job to index in smartevent. Just make sure you don't over write the current log.

    Petaining to the same question I managed to migrate all my old logs to new server and running fw repairlog in loop. So just a question here since I was using smart log will I be able to use with old logs as well? I mean will fw repairlog re-index old logs as well?

    Or is there any other procedure to re-index the old logs?

    SmartLog only indexes logs from initial installation unless you change this as described in sk77640.
