Can I install R80.10 EA on my big open server and have a direct in place upgrade to R80.10 GA when it becomes avail? Or do I have to do a fresh install on the box?

I have the R80.10 EA release and want to put it on a new server and build some new CMAs on it - when R80.10 GA is released will we be able to do an in place upgrade (data saved?) or do we have to install R80.10 GA from scratch?

Hi Jerry,

R80.10 GA released. You can use this rather going for R80.10 EA.

T&R,

Prabu

If you participate in the private EA, there is an EA2GA process the EA engineer will take you through.

If you are using the public EA, I'm afraid there is no published way of moving from EA to GA.

Some of the scripts available in https://community.checkpoint.com/community/developers/code-library?sr=search&searchId=57ec5765-32cb-...‌ may be of use in migrating content between an EA and GA release (I did this a few times).

You may also want to check with your Check Point SE.

Thanks for the info.

We decided to just reformat the array, and install R80.10 on the LAB server.
