Learn about the Log Forwarding Card (LFC) system and
The following information describes the system and hardware requirements
for upgrading to the Log Forwarding Card (LFC).
If you install the Switch Management Card (SMC-B), Log Forwarding
Card (LFC), or PA-7000 100G NPC in a PA-7050 firewall, you must
install the second-generation fan trays (PA-7050-FANTRAY-L-A and PA-7050-FANTRAY-R-A).
If you install these cards in a PA-7080 firewall, you must also
install the electromagnetic interference (EMI) filter. You do not
have to install these components if the last five digits of the
firewall serial number is 10,000 or greater because the PA-7050
will have the second-generation fan trays installed and the PA-7080
will have a built-in EMI filter.
PAN-OS 9.0 or later.
Remove the Log Processing Card (LPC) before you install the
Log Forwarding Card (LFC).
) Install the second-generation fan tray
to increase cooling capacity. The Replace
a PA-7050 Fan Tray topic shows how to install a fan tray.
Replace the first-generation SMC (PA-7050-SMC or PA-7080-SMC) with
the second-generation SMC
(PA-7050-SMC-B or PA-7080-SMC-B).
