Hi All,

I have an opportunity to role out an R81.10 gateway.  Do I need to upgrade my R81 manager to R81.10 first, OR can R81 manage the new R81.10 gateway?

You will have to update the management first. The ability to manage R81.10 gateways using R81 management will be made available through a future jumbo hotfix release. From what I've heard it's expected to be released sometime in August, but it's not set in stone.

With that said, just like when using R80.20 or R80.30 management to manage R80.40 gateways you are losing out on a bunch of the added features and capabilities. It will always be best to have the management on the same version.

My experience with R81.10 on management so far is very good. Especially this change seems to have improved the performance by a ton:

The Solr functionality used by the Security Management Server database is replaced with a PostgreSQL database to improve the stability and performance of the Security Management Server. Solr is still in use for logs and SmartEvent.

After moving from R81 to R81.10 on a management server that is also handling logging and smart event the fluidity is much better. It was very noticeable right away.

One of our marketing slides says a 50% speed improvement for SmartEvent.
There are some other under the hood fixes that improve the stability of security management overall.

I presume we will release a JHF that allows R81 management to manage R81.10 gateways at some point.
However, this does not exist currently.
You will need to upgrade your management to R81.10 first.
If you want to leverage any R81.10 features on said gateway, you would need to do this anyway.

I asked the very same question, and the answer is, yes its on the roadmap for a future jumbo, I think it may be early as August.

I'm hoping R81.10 can manage an R80.10 gw as well.
