    Unable to install the Security Policy on the appliance
  • The following errors appear in SmartDashboard while installing policy on Centrally Managed 1100 appliance:

    • Installation failed. Reason: Failed to load Policy on Security Gateway
    • Installation failed. Reason: Failed to execute policy install commit function
    • Load on Module failed - problem with the Commit Function
    • Load on module failed - not enough disc space
  • Disabling IPS blade, Application Control blade, URL Filtering blade in 1100 appliance object resolves the issue.


The policy file local.set.gz contains a large number of IPS Protections (even if the IPS Blade is disabled on this 1100 appliance) / Application Control and URL Filtering signatures.

The /fwtmp partition on an 1100 appliance is set to a size of 40MB, which is not enough for the operation to complete successfully in this specific scenario.
