Install a PA-7000 Series Firewall Network Processing Card
You can install up to 6 NPCs in
a PA-7050 firewall and up to 10 NPCs in a PA-7080 firewall to expand
port density and throughput. On a PA-7050 firewall, you install
NPCs in slots 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, and/or 7 and on a PA-7080 firewall,
you install NPCs in slots 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, and/or 12.
If you install two or more NPCs, review Configure
Session Distribution on a PA-7000 Series Firewall to understand
how the firewall distributes sessions and to determine the best
policy to use based on your environment.
If you install an NPC in slot 1, the system configures
ethernet1/1 and ethernet1/2 as a virtual wire. If you install an
NPC in any other slot, the system does not apply a default configuration.
