Checkpoint FW-1 NG-AI rookie needs help with SmartCenter recovery

Hi all, I have a problem that I thought would have a pretty simple soulution:

the Windows 2000 server I run my Smartcenter Server service on is on its last legs. I've been trying to find out how to do a recovery if I replace it with a new server with the same IP, but the docs and CP web KB seem vague and misleading.

can anyone give me a 'cookbook' procedure for doing this? I've read about export/import tools to use on a new install, but can't seem to find out how to accomplish it. I've also got good backups of the server, but can't find a good process for re-install and recover.

thanks for any help

Hmm...indeed checkpoint installation is quite straight forward...Not like its licencing which only CP guys can understand...
for the cookbook you can look in to amazon for
