R80.10 Smart Dashboard versioning

Periodical updates to Smart Console appears in the CPUSE upgrades.

Am I correct that in order to keep your version of the console up to date, you need to uninstall the version you have on your PC and install the latest build you can download from your GAIA system?

Re: R80.10 Smart Dashboard versioning

To install a new Dashboard build always requires to uninstall the older version first, then do a reboot and install the newer version. Although newer Dashboar versions do appear in CPUSE, i would rather suggest using the Dashboard version intended for the currently installed Jumbo HF instead (see sk116380 Jumbo Hotfix Accumulator for R80.10 (R80_10_jumbo_hf))

Re: R80.10 Smart Dashboard versioning

Thank you for the reply, it's what I thought since I checked software versions after uninstalling/installing, but wanted to be sure.

It's a bit cumbersome at some customers that the dashboard doesn't update itself though.

EDIT: what I mean is that before we used to have R77, R77.10, R77.20, R77.30 consoles, now it's the same software that's versioned differently. For customers, they still run R80.10, which is less obvious than R77.X where it was pretty clear it was successive releases. No big deal though, just had to clarify.

That is only partly true - also R77.30 Dashboard had different builds (with some for resolving special issues or for new Win versions, like Check_Point_SmartConsole_and_SmartDomain_Manager_R77.30_Win10.exe from sk110892).

In addition to this there are also:

  • SmartConsole for Endpoint Security Server (multiple versions)
  • SmartConsole for R77.30 vSEC Controller (several versions)

+ not publicly available SmartConsole packages for specific customer requirements, for example to have Russian symbols in rules comments.

Yeah, a real SmartConsole zoo, if we also add the MDM / MDS GUIs 😉

The silent installation is possible, but according to sk119612 it has to be preceeded by a manual uninstall 😞

Re: R80.10 Smart Dashboard versioning

Well, it is surprise for me that nowadays delevopers cannot write installation package which will automatically remove old version and install the new one just in one-click...

Or at least ask end user if he/she wants to remove older version and install the new one (if this new version is newer than already installed).

Kind regards,

Yes, the art of programming can be much of a surprise for people not familiar with it 😉 But i did warn you beforehand...
