Moving Checkpoint config from existing IP710 to IP1287 cluster

I  have an IP710 HA pair and need to migrate the config to a new IP1287 HA pair.  Is this process handled completely from the Management server?  Has anybody done this before? I don't want to screw this up.
Thanks

Yes, this can be done.

As long as you are moving to IPSO 6.2, there is a config migration tool that we can use to migrate teh config from one device to a new one.

The basic steps are:

1.  Option the config file from the old device, found in /config/db/initial
2.  Build new IP appliance and configure 1 interface to allow use of voyager
3.  Go to "tools > config migration" and upload the new config file.
4.  Answer all interview type questions, ie which device did this config come from and map interfaces etc
5.  Uppon completion we need to reboot the device to active the old config.


This works for items like interfaces, users, routes, OSPF etc

For more information, see the admin guides for your version of IPSO

Is there a cost for voyager?  Also, what do I need to consider about a migration of this type?

voyager is the web interface for all IPSO appliances and its free bud.  ITs built in to the OS.

Main points to consider is that you have the same number of interfaces when moving from one to the other as we map original interfaces to the new system
