5000 Appliances Known Limitations
The below table lists all of the 5000 Appliances specific known limitations.
Note: all Check Point R77.30 limitations are relevant as well.
Enter the string to filter this table:
Interface LEDs for 40GbE line cards illuminate during reboot if a cable link is established, even if the interface is down.
When running the Hardware Diagnostic Tool twice consecutively, it always fails on the 40GbE self test in the second test. If multiple tests are required, reboot the device between tests.
In CPView "Network/Interfaces" page, the link speed of 40GbE interfaces is displayed as N/A instead of 40GbE.
40GbE line cards do not support auto-negotiation (although it is available in the Gaia Portal).
When running the Hardware Diagnostic Tool with a 40GbE line card without an external loopback cable, the output is not shown on the screen. Successful tests can be validated by viewing the hardware diagnostics log in /var/log/diagnostics after reboot.
When using Solid State Drive (SSD), the local logging feature in SmartDashboard is not supported on the Security Gateway. In case of a disconnection between the Log Server and the Security Gateway, logs will automatically be saved locally on the Security Gateway.
Solid State Drive (SSD) is not supported with a Standalone Deployment (Security Management Server and Gateway on one server).
The size of the R80.10 / R77.30 Dual Image for these appliances exceeds the capacity of a DVD disc. Users should use the ISOmorphic Tool (build 160 and above) from sk65205.
