When upgrading from R77, R77.10 or R77.20 to R77.30, the following error might appear:
Welcome to Check Point R77.30 installation
There is insufficient disk space for the installation of this application.
In order to install this application <VOLUME-SIZE> MB is required under <PARTITION>
Distribution of a R77.30 package in SmartUpdate R77.20 to Security Gateways R77.20 fails when the option "Revert installation to image on failure" is enabled. Refer to sk101438.
Upgrade from R77.20 with hotfix "R77_20_HF9" ("Bar Mitzvah", sk106478) to R77.30 fails due to a fix conflict as this hotfix is not included in Check Point R77.30. Follow the instructions in sk107233.
Upgrade process to Gaia R77.30 on HP platforms that use CCISS driver might end with unresponsive system. Refer to sk106708.
If you install the R77.30 Add-on on a Security Management Server / Multi-Domain Security Management Server running on Gaia OS using CPUSE in Gaia Portal, then you must reboot the server after R77.30 Add-on installation is complete. Otherwise, some Check Point processes might not start correctly.
The Check Point trial license is not retained during an upgrade to R77.30 using CPUSE in Gaia Portal. Install a standard Check Point license before the upgrade.
If R77.30 Add-on package (that was installed using CPUSE in Gaia Portal on another machine and then exported using CPUSE) is manually imported using CPUSE, it appears in the "Minor Versions (HFAs)" section instead of the "Hotfixes" section. In addition, the "Re-install" option is enabled, although it should be disabled.
The error message "FW1: Internal error - failed to determine operation mode" can be ignored in R77.30 Add-on installation logs files (/opt/CPInstLog/install_scrub_plg_R77.elg and /opt/CPInstLog/install_indicators_plg_R77.elg).
If you have gateways of different R77 versions and GX is enabled on a R77.30 Security Gateway only, policy installation will fail. Solution: Use the "Install On" column for the GTP rules.
01362643, 01416065, 01614707
During in-place upgrade from VSX R77.x to VSX R77.30, the $FWDIR/conf/amon_vsx_refresh_interval file is overwritten. If the refresh interval of VSX SNMP counters should be a value other than default 30 (seconds), you will have to edit the file manually after upgrade as described in sk101713 (and in sk97947).
If Multi-Domain Security Management Server was upgraded from SecurePlatform OS to R77.30 Gaia, you must manually install the latest build of Deployment Agent to use CPUSE. Refer to sk92449.
To upgrade from R77.20 Endpoint Security Manager on Gaia OS, which runs with Java 64-bit:
Gaia OS: Clean install from USB device fails on Open Server because the installation process (anaconda) includes the USB installation media as part of the installation target. Refer to sk100566.
Red Hat Linux OS: When installing Multi-Domain Security Management Server, the server's IP address must be manually defined in the /etc/hosts file before the Check Point products are installed.
Red Hat Linux OS: If you installed the R77.30 Add-on on top of Multi-Domain Security Management Server, then you must uninstall the R77.30 Add-on before you can configure the Multi-Domain Security Management Server.

DHCP Relay and DHCP Server do not function when configured together on the same Gaia OS.
Between DHCP Relay (routed) process and DHCP Server (dhcpd) process, the last process to start up will receive all the UDP unicast traffic. The first process sees no unicast traffic.
Both DHCP Relay (routed) process and DHCP Server (dhcpd) process will see UDP broadcasts.
If DHCP Server (dhcpd) process starts first, then this joint configuration will work, because dhcpd process only cares about UDP broadcasts. If DHCP Relay (routed) process starts first, then this joint configuration would fail to work, because the replies from DHCP Server that should be relayed are UDP unicasts.
Timezone data of few regions is missing from Gaia OS R77.30. Refer to sk105902.

FireWall-1 GX is not supported on VSX Virtual System in Bridge mode.
If the Security Management Server or Domain Management Server manages gateways of earlier versions, and at least one R77.30 Security Gateway with GTP rules, then the GTPMGT license is required. Without this license, policy installation fails.
SecureXL Templates are disabled starting from GTP rules in the Firewall Policy. To improve the performance of Security Gateway, the GTP rules have to be placed below the rules for traffic that should be accelerated by SecureXL Templates. For more details, refer to sk32578.
GTP PDU Integrity Tests (Verify Flow Labels and G-PDU sequence number checks) are not supported in accelerated mode. For more details, refer to the Firewall-1 GX 5.0 Administration Guide - "GTP PDU Integrity Tests".
If Carrier Grade NAT (CGN) and traditional Hide NAT are configured, there must not be overlap in the translated packet source address (public IP address). If there is an overlap, policy verification fails.
Carrier Grade NAT (CGN) is not compatible with R77.30 CoreXL Dynamic Dispatcher and Priority Queues features. If you want to use CGN in rules, you have to completely disable those features with "fw ctl multik set_mode 0" command (refer to sk105261).
Kernel Syslog supports only Firewall blade logs. Kernel Syslog is not supported for IPv6 logs or Software Blade logs.
Kernel Syslog is not supported when the R77.30 Security Gateway is managed by R76 Security Management Server with LTE Hotfix.
When Overbilling Attack Protection is enabled, you must define a rule that allows FW1_sam traffic from the GX object to the Check Point Security Gateway. For more details, refer to Firewall-1 GX 5.0 Administration Guide - "Enabling Overbilling Attack Protection".
GTP Bandwidth Management using QoS is not supported.
When establishing a SIC connection with a newly installed GX 5.0 cluster object in SmartDashboard, the platform version must be manually set to R70.
When using the IPS and the Full Intra-Tunnel features, GTP traffic may not be inspected.
The workaround is to change the IPS protection scope from "Protect internal hosts" only to "Perform IPS inspection on all traffic":
Double-click on the FireWall-1 GX object in SmartDashboard.
Go to IPS pane (if IPS pane is missing, verify the IPS blade was enabled).
In Protection Scope, select Perform IPS inspection on all traffic and click on OK.
Install the Policy.
When using the default "Protect internal hosts only" mode, the IPS blade inspects traffic from either the Internal to External interface, or vice versa, using the Security Gateway's topology (which is set in the GX object). Since the inner-GTP traffic does not have its own distinct topology settings and rule base, the IPS blade inspects the inner-GTP packet using the GX object's topology settings, which may cause it to skip the inspection. To override this, you must set the "Perform IPS inspection on all traffic" option.
Full Intra-Tunnel inspection is enforced only on encapsulated IPv4 traffic.
IPS "Aggressive Aging" protection is not supported by FireWall-1 GX gateway (if you enable IPS blade in FireWall-1 GX object, you must set this protection to "Inactive" in the IPS profile applied to FireWall-1 GX. Otherwise, unexpected behavior can occur).
SCTP or Diameter objects cannot be the service of a manual NAT rule. Static NAT will still be applied for rules that match SCTP if the service is set to "Any". All NAT methods can be applied for Diameter over TCP traffic if the service is set to "Any".
