"Old" V18.0 MR5 Thread: https://community.sophos.com/sophos-xg-firewall/f/discussions/127053/xg-firewall-v18-mr-5-feedback-and-experiences
Please review: https://support.sophos.com/support/s/article/KB-000043489?language=en_US
The specific change you mention was a result of a security review we carried out on the OTP functionality. It is not good practice to provide methods to recover existing secrets because this makes it much…
I just tried to manage a Sophos XGS116 with the OTP token. But it wont give me the expected popup in the Sophos Central portal according to the article Use OTP to turn on Central management - Sophos (XG) Firewall
If i enter the serial number it gives me the following tekst: If your firewall is already deployed and configured, you can join it to Sophos Central for management from your Firewall WebAdmin. Please note that a firewall can be managed at any point of time either via Sophos Central or Sophos Firewall Manager (SFM).
So i'm not able to create a OTP token for the firewall.
Is there something i'm doing wrong?
This should the process. Could be currently still disabled in Central itself, i would recommend to try this tomorrow, if the process will be shown.
Here you can see the process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gkxg9nRy1dQ
Yeah the video shows a different screen to. I'll wait till tomorrow.
Higher CPU usage after upgrade. Last week was 4.9%, after upgrade running steady at 22%.
If it is indeed a certificate issue, your endpoints need access to the internet and a DNS server to be able to update their certificate. This is the problem for us, because without a heartbeat, our endpoints are blocked on our network, so they can't update the certificate. I have to change our firewall rules so they can get the certificate and then they got there Heartbeats and I could change the firewall rules back.
Not sure if you have the same sort of setup so I don't know if this will help you resolve your issue.
I have passed on an Access ID via emmosophos so that devs can have a look at the logs.
I'm also seeing higher but nowhere near as dramatic as you. Previously averaging 4-5%, today it has been averaging at 7%. This is on my home XG which is totally over-specced. Will have to watch this when we start updating customer sites as they currently average between 20 and 40%.
Gente ... lo aplique y tal como se menciona aca... el cpu se muere y se pierde el hearbeat ... volviendo al 18.5.1 MR1
Mine has increased significantly, prior to upgrade around 5%, after upgrade 7-18%,currently shows 12%. A well spec'ed home system.
Edit:- added pretty picture of the issue.
