Supported Environments

Management Servers boot by default with 64-bit Gaia kernel after a clean install or upgrade to R81.

Note - If you revert from the R81 upgrade, the appliance will still boot with 64-bit kernel, even if it was originally 32-bit.

Refer to the Product Life Cycle page for more information and announcements about Check Point Appliances.
