General restrictions for Primary and Secondary Security Management servers:
Must have identical Check Point versions and identical hotfixes installed.
To see the build number, run cpinfo -y FW1
Must have identical products installed (i.e, Management HA is not supported between a Standalone machine and machine that runs only Security Management server)
- When two Security Management servers are installed on two different Operating System, "pure" Management HA configuration (not Full HA), is supported only between SecurePlatform OS and Gaia OS.
- It is supported to use different hardware modules. For example, Smart-1 3150 for one Management server and Smart-1 5150 for another.
- Management HA between a Virtual Machine in VMWare and a real physical machine was tested and supported.
Additional restrictions for ClusterXL Full High Availability configuration:
- Supported only between appliances with the identical Operating Systems (cluster requirement).
