New device - same IPs

Hi Guys,

I had this raised with CP, but I still have not got a firm answer. I recently replaced my management server(VM) with a new VM and gateway(4600) with a different 4600.

I have kept the same IPs for both devices for licensing purposes, however the MAC addresses have now changed.

The original license references the original MAC address for the IPs. 

Do I need to re-create the license files for the same IPs but with the new MAC address? This was my question to CP that was not answered. 

This is something I've done a long time ago since the IP never changes, however I do not recall the MAC address field in the User Center Portal. Am I wrong?

I'm looking forward to your reply.

Kind regards,

Octavian

Re: New device - same IPs

Licenses that come with Check Point appliances are tied to that specific appliance (e.g. with MAC address) and cannot be moved to other systems/VMs.

I suggest working with Account Services to get this corrected.

Re: New device - same IPs

Thank you. I was probably clear enough. I have moved the management vm to a management vm, and the gateway appliance to another gateway appliance that we had spare. 

Kind regards,

Octavian
