) Add additional
storage for log collection. Repeat this step as needed to add additional
virtual logging disks.
If you intend to use the Panorama virtual appliance in
Panorama mode or as a Dedicated Log Collector, add the virtual logging
disks during the initial deployment. By default, the Panorama virtual
appliance is in Panorama mode for the initial deployment when you
meet the Panorama mode resource requirements and you have added
at least one virtual logging disk. Otherwise, the Panorama virtual
appliance defaults to Management Only mode. Change the Panorama virtual
appliance to Management Only mode if you need to only manage devices and
Dedicated Log Collectors and you don’t need to collect logs locally.
Panorama virtual appliance on KVM supports only 2TB logging disks
and, in total, supports up to 24TB of log storage. You cannot add
a logging disk smaller than 2TB or a logging disk with a size that
is not divisible by the 2TB logging disk requirement because the
Panorama virtual appliance partitions logging disks larger than
2TB into 2TB partitions.

virtual appliances takes approximately 10 minutes to boot up.
