we want to update our Multi-Domain Security Management R77.30. to 80.10.
Are there any general errors, problems, etc. to be considered with?
We want to upgrade with migrate export/import.
small tip: is there an easy way to upgrade large-scale environments to R80.10?
You may want to search here - there are couple of posts regarding upgrade issues / notes. Generally nothing special, but keep in mind CPU/RAM requirements, R80 is very resource "hungry". Also backup size will increase and restore process will take considerably longer.
this is what I did. very High level. I have detailed notes if you are interested
migrate Export r77.30
On New VM -> setup a new IP for MDS ->Migrate Import
Changed IPs of CMAs - different procedure for r80 vs r80.10
verify MDS/CMAs start
connect to new environment.
Move licensing to new MDM
decommission old MDM
I was able to do several conversion ahead of time to work out any issues with out interfering with production MDM.
I also did a TechTalk on the concept of upgrades in general (not specific to MDM) that may also apply: TechTalk: Migrate to R80.10 and New Years Toast
