CheckPoint R65 ndb_open: database ‘magic number’ corrupted(/opt/CPsuite-R65/fw1/database/fwauth.NDB) error

An irritating error which must be a bug, but only comes around every so often.

Anyway the fix is as follows:

login to the box and ensure you are in expert mode.

then do


cd database

mv fwauth.NDB fwauth.corrupt

thats it!

Reinstall your firewall policy and you should now see it sucessfully install and recreate the fwauth.NDB database.
