Hi there
I need to move one of my firewalls from one part of the network to another, effectively moving the rulebase to a firewall which is already in place on the new part of the network.  

The old management server was runniong R60, the new one s R65.  I need to import all of the objects from the R60 to the new R65 box, and there's a huge number of objects to go in, including nodes, nets, and multiple groups.  Can someone let me know if there's any way to do this?  Step by step would be preferable!!

Thanks : )
Amanda

The checkpoint-supported answer is to recreate all your objects and rules  manually so therefore the following should be carried out on a test management server leaving your current server intact.

On the site: http://www.chatscope.com/ you can download object filler and object dumper - one to dump the objects out of your configuration and the other to import them. There is documentation (and a tutorial included in it) so I would advise reading this and then letting us know if / when you hit any problems.
