Can you have a total of 8GB memory in a 2200 appliance?
Can you install R80.10 on this appliance?
Even if you could put 8GB of RAM in a 2200 (which, as far as I know, you can't), I wouldn't recommend running a 2200 standalone (with management on same appliance).
You can run R80.10 on a 2200 as an externally managed gateway, however.
This is documented in the R80.10 release notes.
I've seen R80.10 installed as standalone setup on a 3200 appliance, which has 8GB of RAM and is the successor to the 2200 appliance. It was significantly slowing down the overall appliance performance, just by having the firewall and VPN blade activated, so that I wouldn't recommend standalone setups on any entry level enterprise appliances.
The R80.10 software has restrictions programed not allowing you to install the management component on a 2200 GW.
I would not recommend to put gateway and management on the same machine. Not in ANY environment.
I did do this in my lab sometimes in the past. But with R80 upwards I always use a seperate management system.
On R80.10 version, You can't check Security Management options on 2200 appliance during First Time Configuration wizard. The only option left is Security Gateway. So, Checkpoint appliance 2200 model doesn't support Security Management component for Gaia R80.10 version.
However in R77.30 version, you have all three options
-- Make it only Security Gateway
-- Make it only Security Management
-- Or, Make it both (Standalone)
But, if you moved to little bit higher model viz. Checkpoint 3200 model. It gives you all three options.
