By default, the Panorama virtual appliance has a single disk partition for all data in which 10.89GB is allocated for log storage; increasing disk size does not increase the log storage capacity. However, you can modify the log storage capacity using the following options:
Add another virtual disk . Panorama on VMware ESXi version 5.5 or later and on VMware vCloud Air can support a virtual disk of up to 8TB. Earlier ESXi versions support a virtual disk of up to 2TB.
Mount Panorama to a Network File System (NFS). This option is available only for Panorama on an ESXi server. Click Storage Partition Setup in the Miscellaneous section, set the Storage Partition to NFS V3, and complete the fields in Table 271. Revert to the default internal storage partition if you previously configured another virtual disk or mounted to an NFS. This option applies to Panorama on an ESXi server and on vCloud Air. Click Storage Partition Setup in the Miscellaneous section and set the Storage Partition to Internal.
You must reboot Panorama after changing the storage partition settings. Select Panorama > Setup > Operations and click Reboot Panorama.
