AMD - Lab R81.20

Hi,

Iknow that AMD is not supported by Check Point, but it has been working "somewhat" within vmware workstation to do labs on AMD on older versions, now on R81.20 it seams to crash right away and not possible to install on a VM within vmware workstation 17.

Is there anyway arround this without buying a new system?

Most probably not, unless AMD-based VMware can perfectly impersonate Intel CPUs...

I tried it just now on VMWare Workstation 15 on Windows 10 running on a Ryzen 5900X based PC and it seems to work OK, I have installed a standalone setup and installed the current JHF on it. It did give me a bunch of messages about strange power saving modes but I can log in to SmartConsole now. Those power saving mode messages repeated after few minutes, but I'm not getting your message about the guest OS disabling the CPU. So it seems like maybe it works in some cases but not reliably, and with caveats/annoyances. I would suggest that if you have a system it can boot on then you could do some policy manipulation work, but trying to replicate a prod system to troubleshoot a bug is not necessarily going to give valid results. 

If anyone else has tested this / can test this and come back with results, that would be handy!

There is no issue or limitations in using Cloud Guard Network (VM Check Point GW) on AMD-based hypervisors. The problems could rise if You use Open Server solution with AMD CPU.

I bought a new intel computer and now it works flawless 😂 was not worth troubleshooting all the time.
