Hardware upgrade from 13000 series on r77.30 to 16000/23000 series on r80.30

Planning hardware upgrade in coming months as we got some old 13000 series firewalls and most likely moving to 23000 series.

13000 are on r77.30

Has anyone done a hardware upgrade like this?

13000 on r77.30  to 23000 on r80.30

Will there be any issues/packet loss?

Yes, we have done it, even it was VSX, no real packet loss as long as you plan your upgrade. All depends on your environment specifics.

I would personally go with R80.40 at this stage as it seems to be fairly stable with latest Take.

Installation and Upgrade guide actually has all steps listed. Plus it lists dependencies and limitations. I have written upgrade steps here in community, feel free to search for those but remember that I wrote those before multi-version cluster upgrade existed. Therefore my best advise is to use the admin guide

Here's an example I did in 2017 how you can avoid packet loss using by disabling OOS packet drops
