New SMB v2/3 Mount Support for Mobile Access Blade

SMB v2/3 support adds two attributes in $CVPNDIR/conf/cvpnd.C file:

Attribute Name
Default Value
 The default SMB version.
:FileShareAppNameToSmbVersion () List of File Share application names and the SMB version to use. The default version indicated in FileShareDefaultSmbVersion is used for File Share apps that are not listed here. 


Configuration instructions for SMB v2/3 Mount Support for Mobile Access Blade:

  1. Back up the $CVPNDIR/conf/cvpnd.C file. 
  2. To change the default SMB version, run: cvpnd_settings $CVPNDIR/conf/cvpnd.C set FileShareDefaultSmbVersion "<version>"
  3. To change the SMB version for a specific File Share application, run: cvpnd_settings $CVPNDIR/conf/cvpnd.C listAdd FileShareAppNameToSmbVersion "<FileShare app name> : <version>" 
  4. For the changes to take effect, run: cvpnrestart

Known Limitations

ID Description
IPv6 is not supported. 
GAIA-3295  VSX is not supported. 
This version only supports the Security Gateway. Security Management and Standalone are not supported. 
Loopback is not supported. As a result, the following features are limited:


  • Peering to loopback IPs will not be supported in SGW mode (at any rate, clustering mode does not work).
  • Redistribution of networks using loopback will not be supported. 


  • No support for loopback IPs.
  • Redistribution of networks using loopback will not be supported.


  • No support for loopback IPs.
  • Redistribution of networks using loopback will not be supported.
The "raid_diagnostic" utility does not work for Gen10 open servers. 
'Emergendisk' is not supported.
VRRP is not supported.
On CloudGuard for AWS, the "ethtool -G" command is not supported.
On CloudGuard for Azure, the "ethtool -G" command is not supported. 
GAIA-3431 The number of FW instances is reported incorrectly in the output for "fw ctl affinity -l" (but correctly in the output for "fw ctl affinity -l -r").  
GAIA-2650 On CloudGuard for AWS, speed and duplex information is not available when using the ethtool. 
GAIA-3427 The bond interface is always up after reboot. You can disable the bond interface permanently by disabling its interfaces.
Process affinity cannot be modified.
"cpmq get -v" is missing output.
Cannot change interface link speed to 1000MB after it is changed to 100MB.
When the slave bridge interface is brought down, the state of the bridge in Gaia remains up.
Changing the MTU on the directly connected switches may cause drops of fragmented traffic due to a MTU mismatch. 
PBR is supported, but the feature that supports 'PBR route lookup' in topologies with a loop is not supported.
ACCL-417 The following were removed: CPView Network -> Top-Protocols and Network -> Top-Connections tabs.
VSECC-784 An R80.20 Security Gateway based on Check Point OS Kernel 3.10 does not support Data Center Objects.
  • In R80.10, this issue was resolved in Jumbo Hotfix Accumulator Take_177 installed on the Security Management Server.
  • In R80.20, this issue was resolved in Jumbo Hotfix Accumulator Take_33 installed on the Security Management Server.

The machine may freeze when deleting the Bridge/Bond/VLAN interface under traffic.

Workaround: Bring the Bridge/Bond/VLAN interface to the DOWN state, save the configuration, reboot, remove the interface, and save the configuration. 

GAIA-3463 Upgrade is not supported.
