Introduction

The Check Point Database Tool, also referred to as GuiDBedit, is a graphical user interface (GUI) that enables its users to edit objects and properties in the Security Management server database. This Database Tool allows users to change properties that cannot be edited using SmartDashboard.

 

Warning

Due to the powerful database editing abilities supplied by the tool, only experienced users should work with it.

Always backup the Security Management Server / Multi-Domain Security Management Server before performing any changes in the database. Refer to sk54100 - How to back up your system.

 

Availability

The Database Tool is supplied as part of the SmartConsole installation.


For R80.x

GuiDBedit is supported for R80.x with the following limitations:

  1. The session will be published after exiting the tool.
  2. The tool is missing the discard option, as SmartConsole has. 

Limitation

Default objects (like default services) cannot be modified as they are stored in a read-only domain (named CPDATA). 
To modify the cloned object that stored in the User domain, clone the object first. 


Procedure

The Database Tool executable - GuiDBedit.exe - is located in the same folder where the SmartConsole is installed.

To work with database on Security Management Server or Domain Management Server (CMA), run:

  • On Windows OS 32-bit:
    C:\Program Files\CheckPoint\SmartConsole\<RXX>\PROGRAM\GuiDBedit.exe

  • On Windows OS 64-bit:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\CheckPoint\SmartConsole\<RXX>\PROGRAM\GuiDBedit.exe


To work with MDS database on Multi-Domain Management Server, run:

  • On Windows OS 32-bit:
    C:\Program Files\CheckPoint\SmartConsole\<RXX>\PROGRAM\GuiDBedit.exe /mds

  • On Windows OS 64-bit:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\CheckPoint\SmartConsole\<RXX>\PROGRAM\GuiDBedit.exe /mds


For example, objects in ‘mdss’ table are seen only when connecting to MDS IP address with the /mds flag.
