You have to stop the MDS to import a CMA ?!

I am in disbelief this morning...


This is our first attempt to import/migrate_CMA whilst on R80.20 and now I find the following


cma_migrate /var/log/xxxxxxx.tgz /opt/CPmds-R80/customers/xxxxxxxxx_CMA/CPsuite-R80.20/fw1

Your Multi-Domain Server should NOT be running while you import.
cma_migrate will now stop the Multi-Domain Server.
Do you want to continue [yes/no] ? no


Surely the whole point of a multi-domain, multi-tenanted solution is that you can build a new customer management domain whilst still running the rest of the production domains - apparently not any more in R80.20 - we could in ALL previous versions of Check Point... why no more ?


Does anyone have any insight into this please ?
