Error when pushing policy on Checkpoint R55

Got the error messages on Checkpoint R55. This is when I’m pushing  a policy to the firewall under R55 Management Station.

Downgrade objects_5_0.C to objects.C failed. Aborting

Failed to downgrade SR community

failed to get network_objects from confObj

Failed to open file ‘objects_5_0.C’: Too many open files

When googling the error, I found out this link. Apparently since it requires rebooting, so it was definitely not in the best interest.

The error was fixed by running cpstop, verify that all the firewall process (cpd/fwd) stopped, after that cpstart again and verify all firewall process started. After that, repush the policy and it was good to go. Nice !!!
