Installing Checkpoint r80.X on a Dell R230 1u Server (Open Server)

Good morning,

Has anyone tried to load the R80.10 iso on a Dell R230 1u server?  Checkpoint has been unable to provide me with any assistance regarding current production Dell rack-mount servers and I am hesitant to buy a new one from Dell without some level of confidence that the iso will load.   The R200 is on the approved list, but that device has not been produced for many years and is in fact 3 revisions old.

Thank you,

Hope you are doing fine! I've been through that situation many times and the best thing to do is to contact your regional Checkpoint sales engineer to verify compatibility.

Beyond that, I'm a huge fan of deploying ESXi on a server and setting up gateways or management as VMs inside it. ESXi provides much more information regarding NIC compatibility among other things.

Generally speaking, we only guarantee stuff on the public HCL is supported.

If it's not on the list, it may or may not work.

If you want a specific server supported, the request needs to be brought through your Check Point SE.
