Upgrading the Checkpoint VSX cluster (VSLS) from R77.30 to R80.10 with Clean install

We are going to upgrade the Checkpoint VSX Cluster from R77.30 to R80.10 with a clean install on a 13500 appliances. The Management Gateway is already upgraded to R80.20 version. 

My question is can we do the clean installation of VSX cluster using the CPUSE ?

While checking the documentation I found the following,

 

From R75.40, R75.45, R75.46, R75.47, R75.40VS, R76, R77, R77.10, R77.20, R77.30 to R80.10:

ComponentSupported Methods

Security Management Server

  • CPUSE Upgrade
  • CPUSE Clean Install
  • Advanced Database Migration

Multi-Domain Server

Security Gateway

  • CPUSE Upgrade
  • CPUSE Clean Install

VSX

CPUSE Upgrade (from R77 only)

Earlier versions: Use instructions in sk101518

CloudGuard Controller

CPUSE Upgrade (from R77.30 only)

 

So, the documentation says that CPUSE upgrade is possible not clarified about the Clean installation.

Paulastya,

Connectivity Upgrade R77.x and R80.x Versions Best Practices  shows all steps you need, including the clean install way.

Last VSX upgrade we did from 77.30 to 80.20  we had some problems and changed the procedure.

1. Did an inplace upgrade of the VSX-cluster to 80.20.

2. After successfull upgrade we followed Reconfigure VSX Cluster member and refreshed the VSX-cluster nodes with a clean install of R80.20.

I'm curious why you're choosing R80.10 when R80.30 is the current recommended release?
Even R80.20 would be a better choice here.
