Migration from R77.30 Openserver MGM to R80 - LIC Questions

Hello, we are planning our migration at the moment and we have some special "Blades" active ( Monitoring CPSB-MNTR-F-SSV and Reporting CPSB-RPRT-F-SSVU) and nobody could tell us how the MGM Server will look like after migration. 8-).. We don´t have SmartEvent with our R77.30 MGM Server !!

We have an unlimited Gateway MGM Server (CPSM-PU007-F) with 7 Blades ( Check Point Security Management container

for Unlimited gateway and 7 blades (NPM, EPM,LOGS, MNTR, MPTL, UDIR and PRVS)

and we have in addition a Smartview Repoter 1 Gateway license and Monitoring LIC attached to it. Everything is with software support/subscription and so on.

What will we get after the Upgrade to R80 ?

Smartview Repoter has gone as far as i know and SmartEvent will replace it. Will we get SmartEvent for one Gateway after the Migration ? We do several Reports on User Sessions / VPN and so on. So those questions came up. Will we have a "locked" down Update-Version of SmartEvent ?

Anyone here who can help with some more infos.

Thanks a lot

As far as i can see, you have one doublette (CPSB-MNTR-F-SSV and MNTR), but this could be a typo and will only be important in case of a trade-in .

Concerning Reporter, you do have the free upgrade to Reporter Blade CPSB-RPRT-F-SSVU - this will be working with R80.10, but the contemporary SmartEvent Bundle has Reporter and SmartEvent - The SmartEvent and SmartReporter can be installed together on the same machine. In addition to generating Check Point reports, SmartReporter provides reporting services for SmartEvent. So with the current licenses, you can generate Check Point reports, but not SmartEvent Reports as you can not use SmartEvent or SmartEvent Correlation unit.

Everything else looks good, but to be really sure, i would suggest to consult Account Services - you can open a ticket, ask them to check your licenses and confirm compatibility with R80.10. Save the # cplic print from SMS / GWs and attach it to the ticket so they have the local license information, too.
