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 Stand-Alone machine and machine that runs only Security Management server)
Note: 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 (Solaris OS is not supported anymore).
Additional restrictions for ClusterXL Full High Availability configuration:
- Supported only between appliances with the identical Operating Systems (cluster requirement)
Note: Management HA between a Virtual Machine in VMWare and a real physical machine was tested and supported.
