The downloads for R75.47 SPLAT are here: https://supportcenter.checkpoint.com/supportcenter/portal?eventSubmit_doGoviewsolutiondetails=&solut...
They are listed under the section "R75.47 Downloads for other platforms" which is hidden from view by default.
As for any hotfixes that may be on the 4200, use cpinfo -y all to check.
You will have to download the relevant ones from SecureKnowledge and/or obtain them from TAC.

For the standalone gateway, I believe you can use the R77.30 migration tools migrate export/import from the 4200 to the 4800.

Migrate export must be done using the version of the tools that you intend to migrate to.
So, for example, if you're planning to migrate a R75.47 configuration to R77.30, you need to use the R77.30 version of the migration tools to do the export/import.

Is this appliance on GAIA? Are you trying to go straight to R80.20 on the 4800?

Downloads for R75.47 are under this sk and details of the last developed HFA are here. But it looks like TAC needs to supply this HFA.

If you are going to use the same physical / logical interface layout, you can probably do a save configuration on the old GW and do a load configuration on the new one. If the Interfaces won't map out the same way, you'll have to recreate your network topology via WebUI on the 4800. I'd do all this just connected locally to the 4800 via a laptop or console and not on the network so you can assign the same IPs.

Once the GAIA config is set, edit the GW properties in SmartDashboard and reset SIC on the existing Gateway object. 

Disconnect the old appliance from the network and connect the new one in its place. Re-establish SIC with the new Gateway. Perform a "Get Interfaces" to pull in the correct network topology. Push policy to the Gateway.

You should be back up at this point on the new GW.

It is probably worth throwing out the usual disclaimer that this CP version is unsupported and the 4000's are end of support on 6/2022. Support Life Cycle Policy

If you are going to move to different hardware, is there a reason why you need to keep it on SPLAT?

You may need to open a case with TAC... unless I'm blind (entirely possible 😀), I don't see a link for the SPLAT version anywhere... just the GAIA ones.

Dear Team ,

 

1. For OS MIgration i have used ''Migration from Secure Platform OS to Gaia OS ''  - Follow Procedure and could not complete configuration only user related configuration found for gaia , So i configured network and static route manually,

 

2. Database - I have taken migration export from secure platform and tried to import but we got error on that ,

 

Is there any other way to do this activity with success?

 

Extracting the database...

Database export was done with migration tools for different version.
You must export and import database with migration tools for version
installed on destination machine.

Execution finished with errors. See log file '/opt/CPshrd-R77/log/migrate-Fri_Apr_12_19-36-27_2019.log' for further details

 

Regards,

Harmesh Yadav

Migrate export must be done using the version of the tools that you intend to migrate to.
So, for example, if you're planning to migrate a R75.47 configuration to R77.30, you need to use the R77.30 version of the migration tools to do the export/import.

interesting posts chaps ... should I show you my 4800 appliance running "cpinfo -y all" - stand-alone installation of R80.20 as well as another cluster with SMS on separately running VM on R80.10 VSX hooked up to VSX Cluster on 2 x 4800's. So what's wrong with it? 🙂

I have no clue why you claim that officially CP does recommend to use maximum of R77.30 on 4000s whilst if you only tweak that box's a little you can do all the magic on R80.xx.
