R77.30 Log Server to R80.10, upgrade or migrate?

Hello CheckMates,

I have a customer with a R77.30 management server and dedicated R77.30 log server looking to upgrade to R80.10. The question is twofold: 

1) If we want to keep the same model with the log server being dedicated, can the log server be upgraded to R80.10?

2) If we want to combine the two in R80.10 so that we have one server for management and logs, how do we go about migrating the R77.30 logs to the newly upgraded R80.10 management server? Especially since there are a lot of logs to migrate.

From other related posts, it looks like we might run into an issue when it comes to indexing large quantities of R77.30 logs if we try to import the logs post upgrade.

Thank you!

1. Log servers should be upgradable to R80.10 from R77.30

2. The main issue if you migrate the logs is that you will need to tell SmartEvent to index the older logs. Refer to Importing Log Files from SmartEvent Servers section of Logging and Monitoring R80.10 (Part of Check Point Infinity)
