R80.10 is now available in Azure
R80.10 is now available in Azure.
There is currently a single marketplace listing:
With 4 deployment options (and a test drive):
A customer gets to select the version (R77.30/R80.10):
And the license:
In general, an in-place upgrade is not the correct approach in Azure or AWS.
You're supposed to redeploy the gateway with the new version rather than try and upgrade (which isn't necessarily supported, or the recommended approach).
On the management side, you should do a migrate export/migrate import.
Please provide the exact steps you tried and the results they provided.
We have a HA cluster R77.30, a standalone R77.30 and R80 management server. All 4 VMs are in Azure.
First of all I tried to upgrade the management server. I created a snapshot and R80 migrate export.
I could redeploy the management server with R80.10, however, I wasn't sure I could recover all the settings/policies using R80 snapshot or migrate import.
I tried to use other migrate export tools: R77.x to R80.10 and R80.10 to R80.10. However, I got an error that I couldn't use those tools because I use R80.
There's no migrate tool from R80 to R80.10.
The only way to upgrade R80 to R80.10 in general is to use CPUSE.
However, CPUSE isn't supported in Azure.
There are several scripts in https://community.checkpoint.com/community/developers?sr=search&searchId=a3dc4812-7a74-47bc-ae4b-919... that can be used to migrate the configuration from R80 to R80.10.
