Check Point Profressional Services

Problem description: A firewall was deleted without detaching a central license. The firewall object was recreated with a new name. Attempts to attach a license with smart update failed with an error to the effect that no unattached licenses were available. I obtained the certificate key from the firewall database. A search was performed on the check point user center with the key. It was downloaded into a file and an attempt to add it to the repository failed with a message that it already existed.

version: r75 or r77 (don't remember)
