Platform Support and Licensing for Virtual Systems

Virtual systems are supported on the PA-2000, PA-3000, PA-4000, PA-5000, and PA-7000 Series firewalls. Each firewall series supports a base number of virtual systems; the number varies by platform. A Virtual Systems license is required in the following cases:
  • To support multiple virtual systems on PA-2000 or PA-3000 Series firewalls.
  • To create more than the base number of virtual systems supported on a platform.
For license information, see Activate Licenses and Subscriptions. For the base and maximum number of virtual systems supported, see Compare Firewalls tool.
Multiple virtual systems are not supported on the PA-200, PA-500 or VM-Series firewalls.
