DHCP on Management Interfaces and Hypervisor-Assigned MACs

To aid in the deployment of large quantities of VM-Series firewalls, the VM-Series now has DHCP on management interfaces and hypervisor-assigned MAC addresses enabled by default on new installations with PAN-OS 8.0. With DHCP enabled on management interfaces, the VM-Series firewall is accessible immediately; there is no need to configure a management IP address on each firewall individually.
By enabling the use of a hypervisor-assigned MAC address, you do not need to enable promiscuous mode on the virtual switches in a layer3 deployment. VM-Series firewalls upgraded to 8.0 from a previous version do not have these enabled by default, you must perform a factory reset after upgrading or enable manually.
