Reboot After Expansion Line Card Installation

Hi There,

   I have a requirement to slot in a new line card for CheckPoint 28000.
After adding the new line card, Do I need to reboot the gateway?


https://sc1.checkpoint.com/documents/Line_Cards/Content/Topics/Line-Cards/Line-Cards.htm

I found this document for the replacement of the line card. I'm not sure this applies to adding new line cards.
Furthermore, the model I'm looking for is not mentioned in the list.

Thanks in Advance

You power down the gateway before installation of the new NIC card/s.

I see the main question was answered, in regards to the guide, you can use this one.

Which does contain 28000.

@Dolev @Chris_Atkinson Thanks a lot for your inputs
I have a 28000 cluster and just to confirm the procedure I need to follow is as below

1. Shutdown the secondary node
2. Insert the line card
3. Power back the unit
4. Failover the cluster
5. repeat steps 1-3 on the primary node
6. Failback the cluster

Correct me if I'm wrong

Thank You in advance
