Hardware upgrade - 2200 to 4200

Is there any SK or best practices to upgrade checkpoint hardware from 2200 to 4200. We are on R80.10 on both gateways and Mgmt server, so installed R80.10 on 4200 gateway. Is it necessary to have the same hotfix on the new one or just the version is good?


Below is what I planned :

  1. Backup the config on 2200 device (5 interfaces)
  2. Import the config to the 4200 gateway (3 interfaces - hope this does not matter unless we have more than 3 interfaces in use)
  3. Reset the SIC on management server for the existing gateway object and change it to 4000 appliance from the dropdown on smartconsole.
  4. Initiate SIC from the new gateway
  5. Install policy.


I thought about creating a new object, which I guess is easier, and delete the old object after getting the new one up, but dont want to do it unless its the only way. Let me know if there is any other way or if I am missing something?


Would be great if someone can answer this question.
