Clone System to create hot spare Checkpoint

I have my live CheckPt r77.30 up and running, and now I have used ISOmorphic USB to create a backup system.

What is the best way to import the settings to this new machine?  I am thinking of copying the backup i have over from my live machine and performing:

fw> $FWDIR/bin/upgrade_tools/migrate import -l <backup>


Is this the way to go?


The hardware is different, so I think importing a snapshot instead will break the new system.


Also -- will that import the valid license from the live server--creating a duplicate?  Do we need to purchase a 2nd license just to have a hot backup of Checkpoint?
