Gateway Object still exists in "Distributed Enforcement" under "Device Status" view after being deleted via SmartConsole Technical Level
  • The PEP gateway has been removed from the SmartConsole, but the gateway object is still showing up under the PDP gateway or gateway cluster -> Device information -> Device Status -> Identity Awareness -> Distributed Enforcement
  • The PEP gateway is sharing the identity from the PDP gateway.
Status from "Distributed Enforcement" was reading from FWM cache by SmartView Monitor. The FWM cache failed to be updated after object removed from the SmartConsole.

  1. Make a backup (sk91400 - System Backup and Restore feature in Gaia ) of the Security Management server or backup the management database using "migrate export" command.
    For Multi-Domain Management server, use "mds_backup".

  2. Verify the object is deleted from the Postgresql:

    [Expert@HostName:0]#psql_client -c "select objid,name,objclass,deleted from dleobjectderef_data where name='NAME' and dlesession=0;"

    The "deleted" field should be "t".


    [Expert@HostName:0]#psql_client cpm postgres
    cpm=# select objid,name,objclass,deleted from dleobjectderef_data where name='FFDFW' and dlesession='0';

    -[ RECORD 1 ]----------------------------------------------------------
    objid | 00000014-002d-004e-a48a-13c7a4ee6574
    name | FFDFW
    objclass | com.checkpoint.objects.classes.dummy.CpmiInstalledPackages
    deleted | t


  3. If the "deleted" field show "f", then using the following API command remove the object from the database.

    [Expert@HostName:0]#mgmt_cli -r true delete-generic-object uid xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx

  4. If the object is still showing up under "Distributed Enforcement", then restart the FWM process.

    Logout from the SmartConsole Clients.

    For Security Management server:

    [Expert@HostName:0]#for PROC in $(pidof fwm);do kill -9 $PROC;done

    Wait for few minutes the FWM should start itself.

    For Multi-Domain Server:

    Find the FWM pid for the specific customer (CMA) from the output of [Expert@HostName:0]#mdsstat

    and run:

    [Expert@HostName:0]#kill -9 <FWM_PID_for_CMA>

    Wait for few minutes the FWM should start itself. 

  5. Verify if the object is still showing up under "Distributed Enforcement"
