I'm curious to see what migration path options are available when upgrading to different Sidewinder platforms.
Currently we have a sidewinder firewall at version 7.0.1.02 and have ordered a new sidewinder as this one is no longer under support.
My question is this...
Since we are not currently on v8 with our current implimentation and the new firewall will come in prep'd for v8, do we have to upgrade to v8 on our current platform, or will the config thats currently running transfer over to the new appliance or will be have to upgrade to v8 on our current firewall and then create a backup of that config and upload that to the new one?
If this doesnt make sense let me know, just looking for advice from someone that has done this before and has knowledge of this.
