Will a revert to an existing snapshot bring the new unit up and running?


MicroCorp experienced a security appliance failure. (LEDs of all NICs are off.) The age of the unit
required that the RMA-unit be a different model. Will a revert to an existing snapshot bring the new
unit up and running?

A.
There is no dynamic update at reboot.

B.
No. The revert will most probably not match to hard disk.

C.
Yes. Everything is dynamically updated at reboot.

D.
No. At installation the necessary hardware support is selected. The snapshot saves this state.

    On Checkpoint sk54100 you can find the following statement:

    “The disadvantages of this utility [Snapshot] are that the generated file is very big, and can only be restored to the same device, and exactly the same state (same OS, same Check Point version, same patch level).”

    So it should be answer D indeed.

    “D” is the correct answer
    As you wrote “can only be restored to the same device” , snapshot save drivers . Different appliance model uses different drivers .

    D. No. At installation the necessary hardware support is selected. The snapshot saves this state.
