Firewall split following VSX deployement


we have recently deployed a pair of checkpoint FW running VSX R76 and created 1 single VS firewall (basic migrating things as is).

We would like to split this existing single VS firewall into 2 VS firewalls. I thought it would be a simple change:  creating a new VS firewall, using the route propagation using a virtual switch, ... our service providers is trying to convince me "this cant be done": routing would not be possible, it woudl require significant downtime, and various physical intervention.

You guess I'm doubtfull ...

Anyone went down the path of splitting its firewall on VSX ?

Well I expect that is possible, but maybe your service provider has valid reasons. Could you please describe your environment more? How looks topology now and what do you expect after the change?
