You can now deploy Panorama™ and a Dedicated Log Collector on Microsoft® Azure®.

Refer to Panorama Models for more information on Panorama modes.
For more information, see Install Panorama on Azure.
  1. Log in to the Microsoft Azure portal.
  2. Deploy the Panorama virtual appliance.
    1. In the Azure Dashboard, select Virtual machines, Add a VM, search for Panorama (BYOL), and Create the Panorama virtual appliance.
    2. Configure the basic settings for the Panorama virtual appliance.
    3. Configure the Panorama virtual appliance size. Refer to the Setup Prerequisites for the Panorama VirtualAppliance for sizing requirements. The Panorama virtual appliance defaults to Management Mode if you do not configure it to meet the minimum requirements for Panorama or Log Collector mode.
    4. Configure storage and networking.
      The Panorama virtual appliance on Azure supports a single management interface. You must use this interface for log collection and device management.
    5. Review the summary, accept the terms of use and privacy policy, and then Create (deploy) the Panorama virtual appliance.
    6. Verify that you have successfully deployed the Panorama virtual appliance.
      It takes 20 to 30 minutes to launch the Panorama virtual appliance and can take longer depending on the resources you configured for the virtual machine. ICMP protocol is not permitted by Microsoft Azure so you cannot ping the Panorama virtual appliance to determine whether it is successfully deployed.
  3. Log in to the web interface of the Panorama virtual appliance.
  4. Activate the licenses on the Panorama virtual appliance.
  5. Finish configuring the Panorama virtual appliance for your deployment needs.
