To include files in the SecurePlatform or Gaia Backup utility:

  1. Edit one of the desired schemes (e.g., fw1.cpbak) in Vi editor.
  2. Search for the line <INCLUDE_FILES>.
  3. Add the desired files. Please note that the path must be specified between the tags <INCLUDE_FILES> and </INCLUDE_FILES>.


To exclude files in the SecurePlatform or Gaia Backup utility:

  1. Edit one of the desired schemes (e.g., fw1.cpbak) in Vi editor.
  2. Search for the line <EXCLUDE_FILES>.
  3. Specify the files that you do not want to backup. Please note that the path must be specified between the tags <EXCLUDE_FILES> and </EXCLUDE_FILES>.


Note: You can use "*" to include all files in a specific directory, for example, /var/opt/CPsuite-R65/fw1/conf/*.

 

Important: Starting R77.20, the Snapshot feature contains all the Check Point suite.

Unlike a backup, which is a selective backup of specific files, the snapshot is a full partition snapshot + some files which reside on a secondary partition. The customer gets a full image, where he can revert to any state of the server.
