Disabling Check Point WebUI first time configuration wizard

 

To install a new Check Point appliance from fresh normally you must run the first time installation wizard, this can easily be overridden by running the command “touch /etc/.wizard_accepted” from expert mode. Once the first time wizard has been disabled you can run the “cpconfig” command to configure the appliance from the CLI.

 

You need to disable the wizard in expert mode, you must set the expert password before you can login to expert mode

Enter a secure password twice

CPFW1> expert

[Expert@CPFW1]# touch /etc/.wizard_accepted

 

 

[Expert@CPFW1]# exit

CPFW1> cpconfig
