Allowing HT to replace string with another one and run translation on it.
New HT configuration parameter was added : CvpnHTAddStringForReplaceAndTranslate "original string" "translated string". (This is a solution in case one needs to replace original url that depends on some parameter with several urls and then run hostname translation on all of those urls.

  • The original string cannot start with " or http.
  • Both strings can contain " but you have to put \ before it.
  • The translated string cannot end with the url path, you must put some character, even "" (space) after it.

Those links will not be translated and the user will be redirected in clear, or will get a DNS error.

00918988 SmartProvisioning hangs during search.
00557913 Upgrading Security Gateways using SmartUpdate to R71.10 will result in an error if you attempt to add the gateways as members to a cluster.
Workaround: Before adding the new upgraded gateways to a cluster, delete the existing gateway objects in SmartDashboard, create new ones and then add them to the cluster.
00560641 Each product that is installed using the R71.10 full release package, has 2 lines in SmartUpdate. The first line shows R71 in the Major Version column and the second line shows R71 in the Major Version column and R71_10 in the Minor Version column.

When using SmartUpdate to uninstall an R71.10 product that was installed with the full release package, you must select the line that only has R71 in the Major Version column. Do not select the line that has both R71 in the Major Version column and R71_10 in the Minor Version column because it will cause the uninstallation to fail.

When using SmartUpdate to uninstall an R71.10 product that was upgraded from R71, selecting either line will successfully uninstall the product.

In Provider-1, sometimes, when selecting "Get Gateway Data" in SmartUpdate, the packages of the gateway disappear in the GUI.

The missing packages reappear once you select "Get Gateway Data" again.

Upgrade Tools
00561181 When exporting a Security Management server's database that was upgraded with an HFA/minor version from Windows to SecurePlatform/IPSO/Solaris, perform these steps to avoid import failure:
  1. cpstop
  2. Convert the text file %FWDIR%\conf\objects_5_0.C to Unix format (either transfer the file to SecurePlatform/Solaris, run 'dos2unix objects_5_0.C' and transfer the converted file back, or perform the conversion using tools available in Windows).
System Status

On IPSO 6, 'cpstat -f memory os' command returns erroneous values ("real free" larger than "real memory"). (This is only an IPSO 6 issue). See sk58160.

This solution is about products that are no longer supported and it will not be updated
