Unknown settings in "Advanced Settings"->"Unknown" and config warnings after upgrade

Post by jono » 30 Apr 2008, 14:46

This FAQ applies to:
  • Clavister Security Gateway 8.00 and up to 8.90
Symptom:
There are old unused settings in Advanced Settings->Unknown after upgrading from a previous version of Clavister Security Gateway. These old settings cause warnings when the configuration is parsed.

Solution:
Make sure that you've made at least one change to the configuration after upgrading. Then open the configuration in text-mode by either using Ctrl-E or choose Edit->Edit Configuration in Text-Mode. Scroll down in the configuration until you find ### Unrecognized settings at the end of the SETTINGS section.

Note: From Clavister FineTune 8.50 it's possible to delete the unknown settings directly in the grid, so there is no longer any need to do these changes in text-mode. You can go to Advanced Settings->Unknown and remove the settings from there directly.

It will look something like this (from a v8.0 Security Gateway upgraded from v7):
[list]### Miscellaneous Settings
BufFloodRebootTime  3600
ScrSaveTime  300
HighBuffers  1024
Port0  DropLog
LocalUndelivered  DropLog
MaxPipeUsers  512

### Unrecognized settings
LogDisallowedReturnData  YES
DHCPdontSetGWbeforeLease  YES
BOOTPRelay  Off[/list]

END
Remove everything between ### Unrecognized settings and END, save and check in.
Then do Edit->Version Control->Get Latest Version or Ctrl-G to get the GUI editor to parse the changes you've made.
