I have a distributed FW1 system.  The Software has been upgraded to R55 recently but after a while the disk of the Management Server (solaris8) failed and the last back up was the contents of conf folder when it was R53.  I now have build and new Management Server, same OS but R55.  How can I update the objects and policies?  I have objects*, *.W and *.fws.  I can see from an editor the nodes and rules when Im viewing it from an editor.
