With a ClusterXL only the following is important:

1) Same CoreXL number

2) Same GAIA version

3) Same OS version 32 or 64 bit

4) Same CCP version ( broadcast ort multicast)

An advantage:

1) Time correctly set

2) License correctly imported 

2) Last jhf installed

When you use ISOmorphic to build a R77.30 bootable USB drive to install the RMA unit this should be just fine, no need for any other settings than Interface and routing information to be copied from the old machine.
Unless you use dynamic routing a copy of the output of the clish command 'show configuration' should give you all the information you need to replace the unit with a RMA one.
After replacing the unit, run the first time wizard and establish SIC and push the policy.

I would do it differently.

1) Export the GAIA gw config:

> save configuration gw2.txt

2) Download the gw2.txt file via winscp

3) Edit the hostname andIP addresses 

4) Install a new gateway on the RMA appliance

5) Import the edited file of the other gateway

> load configuration gw2_edit.txt

6) Creat a new SIC

7) Install the policy

Thanks for your help and guide

 

Can you please confirm where i can check CoreXL number on current box and set it to new hardware

My current box is running with below details

Gaia R77.30

OS edition 32-bit
OS kernel version 2.6.18-92cp
OS build 5

License correctly imported- how can i check this on box

JHF- we don't installed any JFH on our this box

 

i have downloaded R77.30 Gaia OS from CP site for fresh installation. here i also know

to change OS edition we use --- command   set edition 64-bit
&   cphaconf set_ccp broadcast/multicast- for changing its behavior.

.

 

waiting for your response.

Is the RMA-unit the same box as you are currently running? If so than all this is irrelevant, you only need to make sure the same version is installed and preferably the same jumbo take.
