    Default CheckPoint Firewall Upgrade


    We are running Power-1 5077 pair (active/standby) on R71.30. We would like to upgrade our gatekeepers and smartcenter boxes to the latest code. I ran the upgrade wizard and it seems like we will have to upgrade to 75.20 --> 77 --> 77.20. I just wanted to check with you all have seen any issues with these releases and if you can share any documentation on upgrading the firewall cluster. Your help will be very much appreciated.

    We have upgraded a few boxes from SPLAT to GAIA.
    The best course of action I found was to run the migration script on SPLAT. (sk68140)
    This creates a tarball with configuration files. You can then copy it out, reinstall the machine with R77.20 GAIA, and import the configuration into GAIA.
    This saves you the step of upgrading between different versions. Just be sure to take proper backups and maybe snapshot before so you can reinstall R71.30 and roll back if needed.
    This is of course for gateway only
