Update SmartConsole to new HFA without uninstall

Hello,

every time when there is a new SmartConsole package you have to uninstall the old one and then install the new one.

Is it possible to update without uninstallation?

No, it always require uninstall/install again, you can backup users settings at least. I have simple spreadsheet like attached..

Hello,

it would be great if Checkpoint would support real updates for SmartConsole.

I hope copying of the user settings will not create any problems.

Thanks,

Jan

Or just use the Portable version, you can just replace it.

Hi All,

We are planning to release an updatable version of Smart Console in 2019!

I will update once it is available.

Thanks

Can we expect some new "features" like automatic reboot after update?

Kind regards,

Hey there,

Just wondering if this ever made it into GA. Just installed R80.10 JHF: still uninstall/install required.

Or is portable console the official way to go?

Thanks.

Hi,

 

Update SmartConsole without uninstall/install will be available soon for R80.30 and above.

It includes automatic updates in the background (include installation).

Stay tuned.

 

You can use the portable version as well.

 

Thanks,

Raz

But it will still require admin right to be present on the workstation, right? Just for updating to the latest version ...

No. Admin right won't be required.
