I am moving Check Point NGX Smart Console from a Windows 2000 Server to a Windows 2003 Server.  I am new to Check Point and haven't had any luck finding any white papers for doing such a move.  I would believe this is quite common and am surprise I haven't run across any articles.  Does anyone have any documentation for such a move?

The   documentation describes the fact that you have to upgrade them,  and gives several ways to do that.  See the   "CheckPoint_RXXX_UpgradeGuide.pdf" file.   (where XXX is the version  what you have)

This file are in the  /docs  directory in yuor instalation disc,  if you dont have one  you can  dowload the entire pdf  docs   from   checkpoint  home page (www.checkpoint.com)   in the donwload section.

Are you referring to moving Smart Centre or only the console to manage the smart centre server?
