Installing Latest JHF Before Upgrading to Next Major Version?

Jump to solution

I'm upgrading a 4000 series firewall that is currently on R80.10 JHF Take 35 to R80.20. After upgrading to R80.20, I plan to install the latest GA JHF, which is currently Take 141. Is it required or recommended to install the latest GA JHF for R80.10 before upgrading to R80.20? Or is it safe to assume any improvements/fixes/enhancements will be covered with the R80.20 install + latest GA JHF? This really isn't covered in the Installation and Upgrade Guide for R80.20 so I'm thinking I can go R80.10 to R80.20 then install the latest GA JHF and call it a day. Any thoughts?

Why not R80.30 which is the widely recommended release at this point?

R80.30 is the plan but I just needed to upgrade this firewall and few others to the latest R80.20 as that's what the SMS is running. Still new to Checkpoint, so I wanted to lab the SMS upgrade to R80.30 before doing so in production.

Hi @lbcadenco10 ,

You can install latest recommended R80.20 JHF Take 141 on your SMS and manage R80.30 GW from it.

This ability is available from R80.20 JHF Take 91 and SmartConsole Build 055

Sweet! Thanks! I was unaware of this and must've missed it in the documentation. Unfortunately, my SMS is running R80.20 Take 47, so I'll have to upgrade this as well. Overall, the goal is to get everything to R80.30
