This article describes an issue where a race condition prevents Check Point synchronization from completing successfully.After chassis is reloaded, Check Point application (R70/R71/R75) may not come up successfully.
The cphaprob state command shows the synchronization status as Down and fw ctl pstat reports Sync: off.
This issue may be caused by a race condition between the Check Point application booting and trying to sync with other cluster members while the circuit configured for synchronization is not yet fully initialized. The cluster synchronization doesn't recover automatically even after the circuit is ready.
XOS 9.5.5 implements a new optional parameter to delay the start of the application until circuits configured as management-circuit are up and running.
