Upgrade/Install Check Point Solaris using only the iso file

When upgrading or installing Check Point on a Solaris platform rather then having to use the physical Check Point software CD, the following method allows you install/upgrade your Check Point software directly from the *.iso. 

Steps

1. Copy the iso file to your firewall / manager
2. Run the following commands

lofiadm -a <path>/<filename>.iso /dev/lofi/1
mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/lofi/1 /mnt

3. You can now run the Check Point install file

/mnt/Unixinstall

Note : If you want to only install a Smart Center Manager, when you have a firewall installed and using pgkrm CheckPoint* doesn’t work.  Run rm –r /opt/CP* and then run the UnixInstall script again. This should then give you the fresh build options needed.
