  1. Provider-1™ NGX R65 License Upgrade Guide Release Notes February 28, 2007 In This Document Overview page 1 Before You Begin page 2 Supported Versions for Upgrade page 2 pv1_license_upgrade page 2 license_upgrade page 3 Provider-1 License Upgrade Flow for an MDS Server with Internet Connection page 4 License Upgrade for a Single CMA page 10 Overview It is highly recommended to upgrade all Provider-1™/SiteManager-1™ NG licenses to NGX R65 licenses before upgrading software. Provider-1/SiteManager-1 NGX R65 with licenses from previous versions will not function. Licenses for versions prior to NG cannot be upgraded directly to NGX R65. In such a case, you must first upgrade to NG and then upgrade the licenses from NG to NGX R65 licenses. This document will describe the steps required for upgrading Provider-1/SiteManager-1 licenses to NGX R65, as part of the software Upgrade procedure. Software Subscription Requirements The license upgrade procedure is available to purchasers of any of the Enterprise Software Subscription services. License upgrade will fail for products and accounts for which you do not have software subscription. You can see the exact products and accounts for which you have software subscription by looking in your User Center account. 1
  2. Before You Begin In the Accounts page, Enterprise Contract column, and in the Products page, Subscription and Support column, if the account or product is covered, the expiration date is shown. Otherwise, the entry says Join Now, with a link that accesses a quote for purchasing Enterprise Support. You can purchase an Enterprise Software Subscription for the whole account, in which case all the products in the account will be covered, or you can purchase an Enterprise Software Subscription for individual products. Before You Begin Before performing a Provider-1/SiteManager-1 license upgrade, it is recommended that you check http://www.checkpoint.com/techsupport/ngx/license_upgrade.html for up to date information and downloads regarding the NGX R65 license upgrade. Supported Versions for Upgrade For the latest information about supported versions, refer to the NGX R65 Release Notes. If your current installation cannot be upgraded directly to NGX R65, you should first upgrade to either R55 or VSX NG AI R2 for VSX installations. pv1_license_upgrade The pv1_license_upgrade command line tool is used to perform license upgrade for Provider-1. When the tool is run on the MDS, upgraded licenses are obtained from the Check Point User Center Web site for the MDS and for all the CMAs on the MDS. This tool makes it simple to automatically upgrade licenses without having to do so manually through the User Center. The pv1_license_upgrade tool is located in: • Provider-1 NGX R65 CD at: /LicenseUpgrade/ • NGX R65 installation at: /opt/CPmds-R62/system/license_upgrade/ It is recommended that you check http://www.checkpoint.com/techsupport/ngx/license_upgrade.html for up to date information and downloads regarding the NGX R65 license upgrade.

  6. Upgrade Licenses Upgrade Licenses 4. When upgrading a license you must perform different steps when an MDS has Internet connectivity and when an MDS does not have Internet connectivity. When an MDS machine has Internet connectivity: Run the following command line tool on the MDS. On SecurePlatform, you must be in expert mode. • If the MDS is directly connected to the Internet run: pv1_license_upgrade upgrade. • If the MDS is connected to the Internet via a proxy run pv1_license_upgrade upgrade -y -w . The proxy port number is optional. Username and password (if any) are intended for the proxy machine. This step performs the following: • Collects all the licenses that exist on the MDS machine. • Verifies that all licenses can be upgraded, both for MDS and CMAs. • Fetches updated licenses from the User Center. • Builds a temporary cache file containing the NGX R65 licenses. • Installs upgraded licenses for the MDS and CMAs. When an MDS machine does not have Internet connectivity: 1. On the offline MDS, run the following command line tool: pv1_license_upgrade export -z On SecurePlatform, run the command in expert mode. The export command packs all licenses on the machine, for all CMAs and the MDS into a single package file. 2. Copy the package file (containing the licenses) from the offline MDS to the online machine. The online machine does not need to be a Check Point-installed machine. 3. Copy the license_upgrade tool to the online machine and perform one of the following: • Run the license_upgrade line tool on the online machine: If the online machine is directly connected to the User Center, run: license_upgrade upgrade -i -c Provider-1 NGX R65 License Upgrade Guide.

  7. Upgrade Licenses If the online machine is connected to the User Center via a proxy, run: license_upgrade upgrade -y -w -i -c Where is the package file that is the result of the export operation. • Run the license_upgrade tool on the online machine (wizard mode): - Press [O] to run the upgrade operation in offline mode. - Enter the name of the exported file with the location of the package file that is the result of the export operation. - Enter the name of the file that will be created with all the upgraded licenses (cache file name). - Press [Y] when asked "Is this machine connected to the Internet?". - Press [Y] if you are connected to the internet via a proxy and supply the proxy IP port and username password. - Press [N] if you are not connected via proxy and continue with the upgrade. - Enter the username and password of your User Center Account. This step fetches new licenses from the User Center and puts them in a cache file. 4. Copy the cache file (with the new licenses) back to the offline MDS machine. 5. Start the MDS in the root shell by running mdsenv mdsstart 6. Run the following command line on the offline MDS: pv1_license_upgrade import -c Where is the file that is the result of the upgrade operation performed on the online machine. As a result, the new CMA and MDS licenses are imported to the MDS. Provider-1 NGX R65 License Upgrade Guide. Last Update — February 28, 2007 7
  8. After Completing the License Upgrade Process After Completing the License Upgrade Process 5. Review the log files from the online machine and the offline machine. When running the pv1_license_upgrade tool the log files are located under $FWDIR/log//, where operation name can be upgrade, import, export, status, or simulate. When running the license upgrade tool the log files are located under: $CPDIR/log. This log file is generated for the last operation performed. Note: • License upgrade will fail for products and accounts for which you do not have software subscription. • License upgrade will fail for evaluations. • The following MDS Pro Add-ons are not supported via the pv1_license_upgrade tool: Table 2 Pro Add-Ons for MDS Customer Version Part Number 10 NG CPPR-PRO-10-NG 25 NG CPPR-PRO-25-NG 50 NG CPPR-PRO-50-NG 100 NG CPPR-PRO-100-NG 200 NG CPPR-PRO-200-NG 250 NG CPPR-PRO-250-NG Table 3 LS for Pro Add-Ons for MDS Customer Version Part Number 10 NG LS-CPPR-PRO-10-NG 25 NG LS-CPPR-PRO-25-NG 50 NG LS-CPPR-PRO-50-NG 100 NG LS-CPPR-PRO-100-NG 200 NG LS-CPPR-PRO-200-NG 250 NG LS-CPPR-PRO-250-NG Provider-1 NGX R65 License Upgrade Guide.

  9. After Completing the License Upgrade Process To upgrade Pro Add-on licenses: a) Save the following information: * Log Files generated by the tool. The location of the files is printed to the screen when running the pv1_license_upgrade tool. For example, when running pv1_license_upgrade upgrade, part of the output appears as follows: See details in log files: ------------------------- - Upgrade operation logs can be viewed at: /opt/CPmds-R62/log/upgrade/license_upgrade.log - Import operation logs can be viewed at: /opt/CPmds-R62/log/import/license_upgrade.log - Detailed log of the license upgrade tool can be viewed at: /opt/CPmds-R62/log/pv1_license_upgrade.log * Cache file - $CPDIR/conf/lic_cache.C. This file is generated when running pv1_license_upgrade upgrade. b) Contact Account Services at US +1 817 606 6600, option 7. Or, e-mail AccountServices@ts.checkpoint.com, and provide them with the above information. • The Standby CMA repository can not be updated. The Standby CMA repository is in a read only mode. Therefore, it is impossible to see the updated licenses in the SmartUpdate View until the two HA CMAs are synchronized. 6. If the license upgrade fails for only one CMA, it is possible to perform license_upgrade on a single CMA. (refer to License Upgrade for a Single CMA page 10 for more details). 7. Perform the software upgrade to NGX R65 on the MDS Manager, MDS Container, and the MDG. 8. Start the MDS by running mdsenv mdsstart 9. To verify that all the CMAs are running, run: mdsenv mdsstat 10. Run the following command line tool at the MDS: pv1_license_upgrade import -c Provider-1 NGX R65 License Upgrade Guide. Last Update — February 28, 2007 9
  10. License Upgrade for a Single CMA The default cache file location is $CPDIR/conf/lic_cache.C. This step imports the NGX R65 licenses from the cache file to the CMA Repositories of every CMA. 11. Perform the software upgrade to NGX R65 on the enforcement module machine(s). This step is optional since NGX R65 management can manage the NG version of enforcement points. 12. Connect to the MDS using the MDG SmartUpdate component, and for each CMA, delete all obsolete licenses from NGX R65 gateways. (Optional) 13. In an MDS HA environment, as an alternative to running pv1_license_upgrade upgrade on all MDSs, you can use the cache file generated on one MDS, on other MDSs, by copying it to the other MDSs and running: pv1_license_upgrade import -c This step imports the NGX R65 licenses from the cache file to the CMA Repositories of every CMA.
