    Default how to extract the *.tgz file?

    I am tyring to do a stand by firewall upgrade by using the export file form the on-line firewall running on SecurePlatform.
    However, I am stuck at the very first stage of extracting the upgrade_checker_SecurePlatform.tgz file. Not sure what command to use and what I tools should I have in that folder priro to extract the file with?
    Any advice?

    Copy tgz file to tmp directory (/var/tmp for example), and execute tar -zxf file.tgz.

    I'm guessing this machine is a SmartCenter.

    On the old machine:

    cd $FWDIR/bin/upgrade_tools

    If the upgrade_tools directory does not exist, extract the upgrade checker tgz file and copy the upgrade_tools to that location

    In the upgrade_tools directory, run:


    It will generate an export file. Copy that file to the new machine's $FWDIR/bin/upgrade_tools directory. (NGX and r55 already have the upgrade_tools directory there)


    On the new machine:

    cd $FWDIR/bin/upgrade_tools


    ./upgrade_import <name of export file>

    then reboot.

    Note that the hostname of the new machine must be the same as the old one, otherwise you have to brutally reset SIC and the ICA. (fwm sic_reset)

    Assuming the IP also changed, don't forget to adjust the IP in the object.

    Default export tool issue

    Folks thanks for your input. I did extract the files in the $FWDIR/bin/upgrade_tools/ folder and then run the ,/upgrade_export <filename> and it comes back with this message:

    [Expert@usha-fw]# tar -zxf upgrade_checker_SecurePlatform.tgz
    [Expert@usha-fw]# ls
    Inspect.C gtar upgrade_export
    gzip upgrade_exportR55
    pre_upgrade_verifier upgrade_import
    build_number.conf upgrade_checker_SecurePlatform.tgz upgrade_importR55

    [Expert@usha-fw]# pwd
    [Expert@usha-fw]# rm usha020906.tgz
    [Expert@usha-fw]# ./upgrade_export usha020906.tgz
    ./upgrade_export: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    Any thoughts??

    Upgrade utilities downloaded from Check Point Next Generation Utilities download page for VPN-1/FireWall-1 NG with Application Intelligence R55 are not compatible with IPSO 3.8


    Use the upgrade_export/upgrade_import tools that are pre-installed with VPN-1/FireWall-1 NG with Application
    Intelligence R55 for IPSO 3.8. The following are the location of these tools:
