'migrate import' command fails to execute the 'fw authd_set -b fwauthd.conf' command Technical Level
  • 'migrate import' command fails with these errors in 'migrate-DDD_MMM_DD_HH-MM-SS_YYYY.log' file:

$FWDIR/conf/fwauthd.conf file is corrupted on the source Security Management Server, from which you have exported the configuration - several lines are missing the exectable parameter (in particular, entry for port 80).


Follow these instructions:

  • Distributed environment (Security Management Server and Security Gateway are installed on separate machines)

    This problem (issue ID 01288873) was fixed on pure Security Management Server. The fix is included in:

    Check Point recommends to always upgrade to the most recent version (upgrade Security Gateway / upgrade Security Management Server / upgrade Multi-Domain Security Management Server).


    Code was improved: The call to "fw authd_set -b fwauthd.conf" command was removed from 'migrate import' command because it is not relevant for pure Management Servers (in Distributed environment).


    For lower versions, Check Point can supply a Hotfix. Contact Check Point Support to get a Hotfix for this issue.
    A Support Engineer will make sure the Hotfix is compatible with your environment before providing the Hotfix.

    Hotfix installation instructions:

    Note: In Management HA environment, this procedure must be performed on both Management Servers.

    1. Hotfix has to be installed on Security Management Server.

    2. Transfer the hotfix package to the machine (into some directory, e.g., /some_path_to_fix/).

    3. Unpack the hotfix package:

      [Expert@HostName]# cd /some_path_to_fix/
      [Expert@HostName]# tar -zxvf fw1_wrapper_HOTFIX_NAME.tgz

    4. Install the hotfix:

      [Expert@HostName]# ./fw1_wrapper_HOTFIX_NAME

      Note: The script will stop all of Check Point services (cpstop) - read the output on the screen.

    5. Reboot the machine.

    6. Perform 'migrate export'.

  • StandAlone environment (Management Server and Security Gateway are installed on the same machine)

    1. Connect to command line on the source Security Management Server, from which you have exported the configuration.

    2. Log in to Expert mode.

    3. Backup the current $FWDIR/conf/fwauthd.conf file:

      [Expert@HostName]# cp $FWDIR/conf/fwauthd.conf $FWDIR/conf/fwauthd.conf_ORIGINAL

    4. Edit the current $FWDIR/conf/fwauthd.conf file:

      [Expert@HostName]# vi $FWDIR/conf/fwauthd.conf

    5. Change the line with in.ahttpd process (entry for port 80):

      80 in.ahttpd wait 0
      80 fwssd in.ahttpd wait 0
    6. Save the changes and exit from Vi editor.

    7. Perform 'migrate export' from this source Security Management Server.

    8. Perform 'migrate import' on the target Security Management Server.
