Software Updates for Dedicated Log Collectors

  • Panorama > Managed Collectors
To install a software image on a Dedicated Log Collector, download or upload the image to Panorama (see Panorama > Device Deployment), click
Install
and complete the following fields.
Because the Panorama management server shares its operating system with the local default Log Collector, you upgrade both when installing a software update on the Panorama management server (see Panorama > Software).
For Dedicated Log Collectors, you can also select
Panorama
Device Deployment
Software
to install updates (see Manage Software and Content Updates).
To reduce traffic on the management (MGT) interface, you can configure Panorama to use a separate interface for deploying updates (see Panorama > Setup > Interfaces).
