Managed WildFire Cluster Tasks

You can create and remove WildFire appliance clusters from Panorama. Additionally, you can save configuration time by importing configurations from one cluster to another.
Task
Description
Create Cluster
As needed,
Create Cluster
, enter a name for the new cluster, and then click
OK
.
Existing clusters you configured locally and added to Panorama by adding the individual WildFire appliance nodes are listed along with their WildFire nodes and the node roles (
Panorama
Managed WildFire Appliances
).
The cluster name must be a valid subdomain name that begins with a lower-case character or number and can contain hyphens only if they are not the first or last character in the cluster name; no spaces or other characters are allowed. The maximum length of a cluster name is 63 characters.
After you create a cluster, you can add managed WildFire appliances to the cluster and manage them on Panorama. When you add a WildFire appliance to Panorama, you automatically register the appliance with Panorama.
You can create a maximum of 10 managed WildFire clusters on Panorama and each cluster can have up to 20 WildFire appliance nodes. Panorama can manage up to an aggregate total of 200 standalone appliances and cluster nodes.
Import Cluster Config
Import Cluster Config
to import an existing cluster configuration. If you select a cluster before you
Import Cluster Config
, the
Controller
and
Cluster
are automatically populated with the appropriate information for the selected cluster. If you do not select a cluster before you
Import Cluster Config
, then you must select the
Controller
and the
Cluster
populates automatically based on the Controller node you select.
After you import the configuration,
Commit to Panorama
to save the imported candidate configuration in the Panorama running configuration.
Remove From Panorama
If you no longer need to manage a WildFire cluster from Panorama,
Remove From Panorama
and select
Yes
to confirm your action. After you remove a cluster from Panorama management, you can manage the cluster locally from a Controller node. You can add the cluster back into the Panorama appliance at any time if you want to again manage the cluster centrally instead of locally.
