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 (   in the donwload section.

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