Check Point Web Visualization Only Provides Part of Policy

When using the Check Point Web Visualization tool and trying to obtain the policy for a Cluster object you may receive one of the following errors/issues :

  1. The policy is saved as an .html file but it is only showing part of the policy.
  2. You receive one of the following errors when running the Web Visualization syntax:

Querying tables…

Error Reason: Inconsistency problem: table communities is not recognized by serv

An error occurred while synchronizing with server tables.

1 file(s) copied.
1 file(s) copied.

Failed to open DB.
Error Reason: A disk error occurred during a read operation

Failed to get data from the management server “”!


To resolve the issue use the cluster object name rather then the individual cluster node name when using the Web Visualization command. An example would be :

C:\Program Files\CheckPoint\SmartConsole\R65\PROGRAM>cpdb2html.bat . C:\temp\ [manager ip] [username] [pw] -o fw-policy.html -m [cluster object name]
