Warnings

Warnings are issues that will not fail the upgrade but it is highly recommended to address them.

The below table is relevant for R80.10 / R80.20 / R80.30

Displayed Warning Cause Solution
Protocols are not supported Database contains services with unsupported protocol type.  Either modify the service properties to contain a supported protocol type, or change to another service that contains a supported protocol type. Refer to sk103595

Before upgrade:

Warning that lists all the services and services groups, whose names conflict with the new default objects added by Check Point and should be changed to another name

After upgrade:

The name of the services and services group, whose names were not changed before upgrade will contain underscore character ('_') as post-fix.

Issue ID: 01843066

New services and protocols were added to the default database. If there are services with the same names, the user can change the service / service group name before upgrade.
Otherwise, the upgrade process will append to the user services the underscore character ('_') as post-fix.

If there are naming conflicts with the new default objects and you would like to change the names rather than using our default "_" appendix to the name:

  • Before upgrade:

    1. In R7X SmartDashboard, go to Manage menu - click on Services...
    2. Locate the services and services groups that are listed in the Pre-Upgrade Verification message
    3. Change the names of the listed services and services groups
  • After upgrade:

    1. In R80.x SmartConsole, go to the Object Explorer
    2. Locate for the services and services groups that are listed in the Pre-Upgrade Verification message
    3. Change the names of the listed services and services groups
      (their names will contain '_' as postfix)

Warning during upgrade of Security Management Server to R80.x:

  • "At least one of the services contains invalid Match expression"
  • "To resolve, fix the Match expression of the unsupported service(s) (Other Service Properties > Advanced) or delete them"

Error during policy installation on R80.x Security Gateway:

Rule <Rule Number> in Network Security policy will not be enforced, because service <Service Name> has unknown match/action

Issue ID: 01854373

The database contains Other Service objects with non-empty Match field (open Other Service properties - click on Advanced... button), which are not part of Check Point default services.

In R80.x, the Other Service object definition has been modified - the Match field has been split into two fields: Match and Action.

Conversion of objects from R77 (and lower) version to R80.x is done automatically, but for user-defined services it may be incorrect. Therefore, the user is warned.

After a successful Upgrade to R80.x, verify the objects were converted correctly, or manually convert the user-defined Other Service objects per sk109195.
"The unsupported IPS protections will be removed from the "Protections" view" Some IPS protections are no longer available. Refer to sk103766.

Deactivating IPS protections by categories in a Threat Prevention profile will not take effect in IPS Protections view, and will not be enforced on Security Gateway running R80.X

Issue ID: 01564375

Deactivating IPS protections by categories are supported only for Security Gateways R75.X / R76 / R77.X It is recommended to use the enhanced R80.x tag based activation for IPS protections.

Objects that were listed before upgrade now contain service 'https' with port 443 (navigate to the object in the objects bar - open the object's editor - service 'https' appears in service's combo box)

 

Issue ID: 01920887

In R80.x, those objects contain a service, which holds the port. ActiveSync and Business Mail applications with one of the default ports will get the appropriate service, which contains the same port. All of the applications that hold a different port, will get the service 'https' as default.

Warning during database export:

Legacy DHCP Relay services were found in the security rule base. Action is required in order for DHCP Relay to function properly post-upgrade

There are two possible options to solve the problem:

  1. Remove all legacy DHCP Relay services and add new ones instead. See sk104114 for instructions. This is the recommended action for managing R77.20 gateways and above.
