1590 Upgrading Ques

Hello CheckMates;

 

We are evaluating the SMB 1500 (R80.20) and I went to test the upgrading method using smart update and realized I cannot find the tgz file only the img file. 

Is this method going away? or is it because the code is new that it takes a little while for it show up in tgz format ?

These devices would be rolled out in a SCADA environment without access to the internet so doing upgrades from the Manager would be preferable.

 

Thanks

SmartUpdate can’t be used to update R80.x gateways (SMB or otherwise).
I know we are integrating CDT into SmartConsole as part of R80.40.
Not sure if this will allow firmware upgrades to the 1500 Series appliances or not.

Thank you both for your responses. 

So,  it sounds like we can count on SmartUpdate being able to upgrade these in the future ?

Yes, and to be more accurate until we can offer an alternative.

I see there is now a .tgz file marked for smartupdate. I imported it but the 1590 does not see it in the provisioning profile. the profile sees the ones for the 1200r but not the r80.20.

I think you are testing SmartProvisioning - according to sk163914: Cannot attach an LSM profile to a 1500 Branch Office Appliance (in SmartProvisioning) on M..., there are issues. But i found that just using SmartUpdate without LSM does work. When selected in the Packet Repository it will give the error "No suitable targets found" if Distribute or PreInstall Verifier are performed. But when the 1500 device itself is selected, "Distribute Package..." shows the added CP1500_6.0_4_0_-.tgz and installs it:

The Operation Details are very deep indeed, reflecting the console output:

Thanks for all the info.  Looks like more work needs to be done on Check Point's part for the LSM functionality. 

but I'll test this out.

Thanks very much

1500 devices support in LSM is not yet available.

It is expected as part of R80.40.

Thanks, I think that was mentioned and I forgot. Too much multitasking....

Hello Check Mates;

Haven't had time to lab up R80.40 yet but I don't see any support listed in the release notes for LSM for 1590's

Anyone been able to try this yet?
