Can we import the config of an 1120 into a 1530

We soon have to replace our 1100 devices with new ones (probably 1530):

 

Is it possible to directly import the config from the 1100 (R77.20.80) into the 1530 (R80.20.25 or higher)?

@MikeB gave good answer, better to confirm but I am pretty positive that with Check Point, you can NOT import config from one appliance onto another, unless its same appliance model and same version. I am pretty sure logical reasoning for that is say if you have 4400 appliance and you want to import backup into, I dont know, lets say for argument's sake, 16000 box. Well, that would never work, as interface layout and config is totally different. Now, if 2 appliances you are talking about have exact same hardware features, then it might be doable, but most likely not supported.

I recall at some point Fortinet support had process to do this on 2 different models, but then they deleted it, as people were doing it, s*** would happen and they would then call support and complain. All in all, always better to follow vendor's recommendations...sort of goes without saying : )

This is not true:

- With SMB (not GAiA !) appliances this is possible with some limitations as shown in   Configuration transfer between different SMB models. 

- With SMB there is the direct procedure for configuration export/import between model series @PhoneBoy speaks of in his post.

- For GAiA this is possible as explained in How to Backup and Restore in Gaia

You can take the backup from an older SMB appliance running R77.20.87 and restore it onto a newer SMB appliance as of R80.20.15.

Likewise, you can migrate 600/1100/1200R to 700/900/1400 using a similar procedure.

So from a 1100, 2 steps are required, first step to an intermediate 1400, and then to a 1500, that‘s what I assumed unfortunately.

And will SIC be transfered as well?

It’s a full backup and restore, so I would expect it to.
