How to migrate from standalone configuration (R80.10) to distributed?

Hello. We have a cluster of two gateways with R80.10. It's standalone configuration. We need to migrate to distributed. I can't find any instruction for this case. All sk's for R77.30 and it does not work for R80.10.

Need help.

If I remember correctly our private conversation, you have a particular error when doing migrate import. Is that the case? If yes, please outline it in the post, so we could deal with an actual issue and not a general theoretical discussion.

Thanks

I have received the answer form support:

Continuing our conversation,

https://supportcenter.checkpoint.com/supportcenter/portal?eventSubmit_doGoviewsolutiondetails=&solut...,

In this SK there is an official statement:

“Migration of Full HA environment to Distributed environment is not supported in R80.x”

Okay then. Migrate it while on R77.30. Then upgrade to R80.10

I just completed this successfully - as always had to piece it together.  

Create a temp directory to house the export:

mkdir migration

Copy the archive to this directory (myarchive.tgz in my example)

Extract the archive:

tar -xvzf myarchive.tgz

Modify the files from the archive:

configuration - change line:

RegistryKeys FWManagement,Firewall,Primary

to

RegistryKeys FWManagement,Primary (remove firewall)

configuration2

:is_firewall_module (yes)

to

:is_firewall_module (no)

:installed_products_registry_string ("FWManagement,Firewall,Primary")

to

:installed_products_registry_string ("FWManagement,Primary")

tar up the archive:

tar -cvzPf mynewarchive.tgz *

This allowed me to import the configuration.  I was then able to go in and deselect firewall module and install database on the newly imported management station.

Hope this helps!!!

In general, we do plan to have formal support for this again.
