we have Smart-1 210 NGSE. We want upgrade from 77.30 to R80. Can we do same??
If I remember correctly; the upgrade path is to export, fresh install, and import.
A review of the r80 release notes confirms this.
That being said, I've seen comments elsewhere that the older Smart-1 appliances may become CPU/memory constrained running r80.
For just SmartEvent it will probably work since the Smart-1 210 has 8GB of RAM, but performance will definitely not be spectacular since it only has 2 cores. 4 cores is recommended.
