R77.30 IPS policy to R80.10

Hi there,

I just upgrade my Smart Center to R80.10.  The gateway is still R77.30.

My next step is to upgrade the gateway to R80.10.

My question is if there is something I need to do with the IPS policy.


My perception is that the current "IPS" under the "Threat Prevention - Policy" is for R77.30 gateway.

I should start to use the "Threat Prevention" screen for IPS policy on R80.10 gateway. 

Is this correct?


If so, does this mean once I upgrade my GW to R80, I should somehow ensure my IPS policy is in Threat Prevention screen, and disable the IPS rule under the "IPS" screen?  (see attached screen print for reference).


This may sound confusion.  The bottom line I want to know is if there is step I should do once I upgrade my GW to R80.10.





In R77.30, I build individual IPS Protection profile for each of my gateway (e.g. DMZ-FW-Protection / VPN-FW-Protection / REMOTE-SITE-FW-Protection).  And now all these protection are listed in the IPS screen.  I suppose this is normal, right?  I expect that as I migrate the GW to R80, I will start deleting them, right?
