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.

The best course of action would be to rebuild R53 and restore the files to that, and then upgrade to R55.

Is this what you did in the end ?
Otherwise, you may have been able to dump the files you had back into the new conf directory, but you would have had to have redone your SICS and all your VPNs, as the keys are all stored in the registry, which I believe you did not have a backup of ??
