Select PanoramaManaged Devices to display the following information for each managed firewall.
Managed Firewall Information
Description
Device Group
Displays the name of the Panorama > VMware NSX in which the firewall is a member. By default, this column is hidden, though you can display it by selecting the drop-down in any column header and selecting ColumnsDevice Group.
Regardless of whether the column is visible, the page displays firewalls in clusters according to their device group. Each cluster has a header row that displays the device group name, the total number of assigned firewalls, the number of connected firewalls, and the device group path in the hierarchy. For example, Datacenter (2/4 Devices Connected): SharedEuropeDatacenter would indicate that a device group named Datacenter has four member firewalls (two of which are connected) and is a child of a device group named Europe. You can collapse or expand any device group to hide or display its firewalls.
Device Name
Displays the hostname or serial number of the firewall.
For the VM-Series NSX edition firewall, the firewall name appends the hostname of the ESXi host. For example, PA-VM: Host-NY5105
Virtual System
Lists the virtual systems available on a firewall that is in Multiple Virtual Systems mode.
Tags
Displays the tags defined for each firewall/virtual system.
Serial Number
Displays the serial number of the firewall.
IP Address
Displays the IP address of the firewall/virtual system.
Template
Displays the template or template stack to which the firewall is assigned.
Status
Device State—Indicates the state of the connection between Panorama and the firewall: Connected or Disconnected.
A VM-Series firewall can have two additional states:
  • Deactivated—Indicates that you have deactivated a virtual machine either directly on the firewall or by selecting Deactivate VMs (PanoramaDevice DeploymentLicenses) and removed all licenses and entitlements on the firewall. A deactivated firewall is no longer connected to Panorama because the deactivation process removes the serial number on the VM-Series firewall.
  • Partially deactivated—Indicates that you have initiated the license deactivation process from Panorama, but the process is not fully complete because the firewall is offline and Panorama cannot communicate with it.
HA Status—Indicates whether the firewall is:
  • Active—Normal traffic-handling operational state
  • Passive—Normal backup state
  • Initiating—The firewall is in this state for up to 60 seconds after bootup
  • Non-functional—Error state
  • Suspended—An administrator disabled the firewall
  • Tentative—For a link or path monitoring event in an active/active configuration
Shared Policy—Indicates whether the policy and object configurations on the firewall are synchronized with Panorama.
Template—Indicates whether the network and device configurations on the firewall are synchronized with Panorama.
Certificate—Indicates the managed device’s client certificate status.
  • Pre-defined—The managed device is using a pre-defined certificate to authenticate with Panorama.
  • Deployed—The custom certificate is successfully deployed on the managed device.
  • Expires in N days N hours—The currently installed certificate will expire in less than 30 days.
  • Expires in N minutes—The currently installed certificate will expire in less than one day.
  • Client Identity Check Passed—The certificate common name matches the serial number of the connecting device.
  • OCSP Status Unknown—Panorama cannot get the OCSP status from the OCSP responder.
  • OCSP Status Unavailable—Panorama cannot contact the OCSP responder.
  • CRL Status Unknown—Panorama cannot get the revocation status from the CRL database.
  • CRL Status Unavailable—Panorama cannot contact the CRL database.
  • OCSP/CRL Status Unknown—Panorama cannot get the OCSP or revocation status when both are enabled.
  • OCSP/CRL Status Unavailable—Panorama cannot contact the OCSP or CRL database when both are enabled.
  • Untrusted Issuer—The managed device has a custom certificate but the server is not validating it.
Last Commit State—Indicates whether the last commit failed or succeeded on the firewall.
Software Version | Apps and Threat | Antivirus | URL Filtering | GlobalProtect™ Client | WildFire
