We are looking at upgrading our existing Checkpoint 2 x 4800 Firewalls from R76 to R77.30.
I've written steps for the process and I would appreciate it if you can advise please since I've never done an upgrade on CP begore.
Before upgrade process I will create a snapshot Image of both FWs to roll back in case things don't go according to plan.
Steps for upgrading:
1- On Standby CP
Gaia > Software Updates > Status and Actions > Select R77.30 Fresh Installand Upgrade from R75.4x/R75.40VS/R76
2- Go through Installation process
4- Continue with installation process if there is
All the above work was done on the Standby. Now, on the active CP:
1- Run cphastop to swap between Active and Standby
2- Check that Standby with R77.30 is now the Active FW
3- Follow the same process on above on the new Standby R76 FW
