any recommendations you can give me for this type of installation, except more memory? Target is 5100 HA cluster. FW active/passive, SMS passive/active. There is no budget for separate SMS.
I would recommend to install R77.30 + Jumbo Hotfix at least in that case.
Full HA installation is a pretty bad choice in my opinion. But you can make a setup when FW is active on the primary node and management server is active on the secondary node.
Gotta agree with Aleksei Shelepov here to use R77.30 (with latest GA jumbo HFA); while the 5100 has 8GB of RAM only having two cores will make R80.10 management quite slow (especially with a Full HA setup) and log indexing will be disabled.

We are going to add more RAM at least. R77.30 will be unsupported next year so I want to avoid to install R77.
