Critical configuration files mismatch across cluster members for Check Point

Vendor

Check Point

Description

Indeni will identify when two devices are part of a cluster and alert if critical configuration files are different.

Remediation Steps

Correct any differences found to ensure a complete match between device members.

How does this work?

An MD5 hash is calculated for each file, to make comparison easy and accurate. Some lines in the files are, however, member or time specific, so these lines are excluded.

Why is this important?

An MD5 hash is calculated for each file, to make comparison easy and accurate. Some lines in the files are, however, member or time specific, so these lines are excluded.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator could login to all cluster members and manually calculate MD5 hashes for files, but would also need to know which lines in the files to exempt.
