2016-04-09_012349

What’s new in R77.30?

To upgrade from R77.20 to R77.30, first you need to upgrade the Deployment Agent (CPUSE). The files below are needed, you can download it from Check Point’s website.

  • Check_Point_R77_20_R77_30_T204.tgz
  • DeploymentAgent_000000802_1.gz

If you already downloaded the files, copy them to a flash disk and plug it in the USB port on the Check Point. You then need to connect to the console port, login and get into expert mode.

Now you need to upgrade from CPUSE on Gaia Portal. Go to Upgrades (CPUSE) and find the R77_30 file you uploaded, and then verify and install it. The Check Point then will reboot after the upgrade process.

Note:
– If you couldn’t find the file, click on “Showing Recommended packages” and choose “All”. The new version of CPUSE automatically downloads the latest hotfix and by default it doesn’t show all the files, only the hotfixes.
– If CPUSE has already downloaded the entry of R77.30 upgrade but not the actual upgrade package file, you may receive an error if you upload the file manually, so you have to remove the entry CPUSE created from expert mode. Locate this file with find or locate command then upload the upgrade package file.
