Re: Upgrade Mgmt R80.10 to R80.20

We solve it via LVM Manager to shrink the LOG volume (-50GB). We don't need more disk-space in summary. After then the verifier was fine and we did a successfully upgrade to R80.20.

Hi, small tip:

While Check Point always recommends to upgrade in-place with CPUSE, because it's simpler and easier to do, upgrading Security Management Servers from pre-R80.20 to R80.20 and above is recommended with Advanced Upgrade, for the benefit of replacing the file system to the new XFS, which gives performance improvements.

Re: Upgrade Mgmt R80.10 to R80.20

Any measurements on how much performance is improved? Relatively speaking of course.

Also, is it possible to switch R80.20 to XFS later on (after it is upgraded)?

As you mention neither Version nor deployment the error shown is inexplicable 😉

Looks like a warning message, not a blocking message.

What happens when you try to upgrade?

I ran into this recently as well.

What you have to do is the following:

The "upgrade" option should show.

Re: Upgrade Mgmt R80.10 to R80.20

I think this would resolve it too, have red the SK there and I´ve seen that the upgrade tools are old in the log files from the DA.

Re: Upgrade Mgmt R80.10 to R80.20

Hello, I upgrade management and log servers r80.10 to r80.20 witch CPUSE. And I upgrade de active member r80.10 to r80.20 with CPUSE. After reboot, I lost the communication with him (ping, ssh, https). And ClusterXL is :

Active PNOTES: fsync

Last member state change event:

Event Code CLUS-115303

State change : INIT -> ready

Reason for state change : Member with older software release has been detected

What is the best way to upgrade with cpuse when you have a cluster?

If I upgrade the other firewall, will the cluster start working again?

Re: Upgrade Mgmt R80.10 to R80.20

Take a look at "Connectivity Upgrade" in Install and Upgrade Guide. 

Re: Upgrade Mgmt R80.10 to R80.20

ok, Thanks.

Another question: After the upgrade, I can not icmp, ssh and https on the firewall in standby. How to get around this?

Re: Upgrade Mgmt R80.10 to R80.20

Please obtain the lvm_manager tool via sk95566: Managing partition sizes via LVM manager on Gaia OS.  What does it report for these partitions:

upgrade       77         N/A        no              Reserved for version upgrade

free          -77        N/A        no              Unused space

The "upgrade" raw area of the disk is used for in-place version upgrades and storage of snapshots, my guess is you don't have enough of it.  Or it is possible that the upgrade needs to create a completely new partition from unallocated/free space and there isn't any.  Either way lvm_manager will allow you to poke around and possibly reallocate partitions to give the upgrade process what it wants.  Very important though: always make sure you have a known-good backup prior to tampering with disk partitioning!
