How do I recover firewall rules from a checkpoint firewall to restore back to a failed checkpoint manager box?

I have three checkpoint firewalls and one checkpoint management box, the checkpoint management box has failed and I want to restore the rule base from the firewalls back to a "new" checkpoint management box, is there a way to do this?

In short, no.

If you have access to the files that are on the management box then it *may* be possible to recreate the rules and objects files but if you can't access these and you don't have either a full backup or checkpoint upgrade_export then you are unfortunately out of luck :/
