please help,



L7 Applicator


it depends, if your config comes from an old config migrated to R75 probably you will find all the files we need to migrate, if not and you have only the rulebases_5_0.fws with the policies you have to twick a little bit the conf. Check this Using the Migration tool with Check Point R75.40

Hope it helps

Hi alestevez

Thank you,

it is from a new config, and i dont have the PolicyName.W file,

for some reason i can get to the link you provided,

it is the link that talk about making this file from the rulebases_5_0.fws?


cat c:\\PolicyName_pre.W | sed '/.*: (ReferenceObject/'{N\;N\;N\;N\;'s/.*: (ReferenceObject\n.*:Name (\(.*\)).*\n.*:Table

(.*)\n.*:Uid (.*)\n.*/ : \1/'} > c:\\PolicyName.W


cause if yes i tried it, and in MobaXterm i get an error : " sed: unmatched '/' "

and it create the new file with 0kb.

Can you help me with that please?



From a linux box can you try this?

cat a.W | sed '/.*: (ReferenceObject/'{N\;N\;N\;N\;'s/.*: (ReferenceObject\n.*:Name (\(.*\)).*\n.*:Table (.*)\n.*:Uid (.*)\n.*/\t\t\t: \1/'} > PolicyName.W

where a.W is the file with the policy from your rulebases_5_0.C

Tell me if this works for you please


Sorry for the delay,

i tried to run the command u wrote me in linux machine, and it looks better, the output file is not 0kb

but when i run it in the migration tool, under the section of "reading security rules" it said:

"This Rule:1 is only header"  ---  rule has not been added. omiting.

any idea?

and can you please tell me exactly from where to where i need to copy from the rulebases_5_0.fws file.?



First, please download the new image 2.1 form our main page in the community

Now open your rulebases file and copy from ##your policy until the last ) corresponding with your config, save it on a diferent file, now use this new file as the PolicyName.W in your migration process and Click on a new check button called Fix R75.40" in the screen when you add a new project "checkpoint" in the migration tool and we will do all the work for you

Try it please and write here your feedback



Can you provide a link to the new image?  I'm unable to locate it.
