I would actually advise you to go to R80.20 or even R80.30 EA, if possible.

There are simply too many improvements in .20 and .30 to justify not trying to get there as soon as possible.

If you are going to move to R80.20, I'd suggest fresh install at least on management side, due to changes in the kernel and the file system. 

Take a look at https://community.checkpoint.com/docs/DOC-3471 for further details.

Hi Jesus,

When migrating from R77 to an R80 version I would definitely recommend building a new management server and migrate the database to the new appliance. 

If nothing else it allows you to have a controlled migration with an extremely quick back out plan if something does go wrong with the process. 

I'd also recommend going to atleast R80.20. 

Regards

Mark
