Quantum Smart-1 Appliances Refresh: 600-S/600-M/6000-L/6000-XL

Jump to solution

Today, we announced new additions to our Quantum Smart-1 appliances line.
Continuing the refresh started in February by launching the high-end models: 6000-L & 6000-XL
Today we are announcing the Enterprise models: 600-S and 600-M

The new Quantum appliances are introducing up to 70% in all major logs KPIs, and together with R81 capabilities it will provide our customers a fast management platform

That will allow them a better respond to cyber-attacks and it will reduce their operational costs.

  • Smart-1 600-S is the successor for Smart-1 405/410
  • Smart-1 600-M is renaming of the existing Smart-1 625
  • Smart-1 6000-L is the successor of Smart-1 5050
  • Smart-1 6000-XL is the successor of Smart-1 5150

Customers have the flexibility to grow based on their needs by upgrading from Base to Plus configuration which will double the amount of managed gateways.

Software version:
The appliances are installed with R81 out of the box
Soon we will release support for R80.40

Old Platforms (405/410/625/5050/5150) support
End of sales will be September 2021.
End of support (based on Check Point life cycle policy) will be September 2026

Hi Gary

 

Did you tried the latest Isomorphic build? It might be the issue.

If nothing is shown, you are probably connected through VGA, but option 4 & 5 are meant to install from console.

Hope this can help.

 

Thanks, Guy

I have a new smart-1 6000L that we need to have R80.40 installed on, I see there a .iso for 80.40 and this model but using the current isomorphic tool there is no option to install on this specific model, trying the Smart-1 options 4 or 5 it just sets and never installs. Thought of going the DVD USB install route but see this is not supported on these models. Any guidance on getting 80.40 on this model would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

Try to use the R80.40 blink image, which can be installed from R81.
You can also install R80.40 from CPUSE via the Gaia WebUI.

Thanks for the input but we seem to have got stuck between a rock and a hard place. In the attempt to re-image with R80.40 using isomorphic build 181 the two options for smart-1 were attempted, now when booting we get "booting from hard drive C: no boot device available". Tried again with the R81 .iso and isomorphic but got the same results seen with R80.40 when attempting to install leaving us unable to re-image to 81 or 80.40. We have a TAC case open and will post the outcome.

This was done thru the console and the 12 isomorphic options are shown, none of them show the smart-1-600/6000 devices, selecting option 4 or 5 it would just sit there and do nothing, now the appliance will not boot at all and we have no way to re-image it to R80.40 or R81.

Not sure there is iDRAC with these models, but you could try build via this, if Checkpoint allow this?

A new isomorphic tool build 187 was released today which includes the new smart-1 appliances.

Other then the adding supported for new devices are there any other improvements?  I could not see any release notes.

I assume that's the main enhancement unless there is anything new listed in the SK.

My assumptions too, the new 600/6000's are shown now in isomorphic and we will be testing this tonight on a 6000L.

genisis__ To answer the iDRAC install possibility, one known limitation, "Gaia ISO install via IDRAC LOM is not supported".

Not supported and functionally possible are two different things 😉

I have done R81 builds via iDRAC using Dell "OpenServers" and it works fine.  There is a way to get high lever access to the iDRAC on Checkpoint appliances, but this was tested on v4.40 of the firmware, not really looked at since it went up to v4.40.10 and I have never attempted doing a build via iDRAC on an appliance.

I think iDRAC function should be fully in-place, so that underlining firmware can be updated and useful things like rebuilding a gateway that 200miles away is possible.

We are working on a solution that will enable remote installation of the management appliance using iDRAC. We still don't have ETA for that

Guy,

 

As these appliances are basically Dell Servers can we not update the underlining firmware using the iDRAC.  Example NIC firmware updates, BIOS for the appliance, RAID card etc.

We are supporting with iDRAC only the functionality which is mentioned in sk122914

Has anyone with a smart-1 6000L been successful re-imaging the device with isomorphic to R80.40 or R81? We have had a TAC case open for over a month, it was decided that the device would be RMA'd and they would send a new one with R80.40 pre-installed, after receiving the new device the Mgmt port cannot be accessed using the IP 192.168.1.1, this is the same symptom we experienced on the old device after getting it to install R80.40 only by choosing open server as the device type, choosing the smart-1 6000L device type it would just sit and never install.
