Querying policy details on your FWs

With growing complexity of security systems we need to rely on automation for some routine tasks. One of these tasks can be checking policy package names and installation timestamps per FW.

One of the ways to do so is to use cpstat command on your management server. The command would look like this:

cpstat -h -f policy fw | grep Policy

with the output similar to this:

Policy name:                Standard
Policy install time:        Fri Jan  9 10:28:20 2015

More details about cpstat can be found in CLI reference guide document.
