Check Point - Ive pushed the Wrong Policy

Issue

There may be a time where you install the wrong policy onto a Check Point Firewall. This can block your connections, and screw which traffic is allowed through the firewall.

Resolution

These steps will show you how to remove and reinstall the correct policy via the CLI on the manager (SCS),

  1. First of all we look at the policy history, so we can find out the name of the policy we need to reinstall.

fw stat -l [firewall ip]

  2. Next we remove the security policy from the firewall.

fwm unload [fwname]

  3. Finally we install the correct policy back onto the Firewall. Note : Note how we add the .W to the policy name as it has yet to be be compiled into a .cf file (which is what is installed onto the Firewall/Gateway)

fwm load [PolicyName].W [fwname]
