    A because check point states that you should use the migration tool of the version you are upgrading to. In this case R77.

  2. Nikon says:

    Always use the latest migration tool for the version you are upgrading *to* not from.

    “Before you upgrade appliances or computers, use the upgrade tools. There is a different package of tools for each platform. After installation, you can find the upgrade tools in the installation directory.

    Gaia or SecurePlatform: $FWDIR/bin/upgrade_tools
    Windows: %FWDIR%/bin/upgrade_tools

    To make sure you have the latest version of the upgrade tools, you can download the appropriate package from the Check Point Support site.”
