Add a Virtual Disk to Panorama on Hyper-V
Add a virtual logging disk to Panorama™ in Panorama or Log Collector mode on Hyper-V.
After you Install Panorama on Hyper-V, add virtual logging disks to the Panorama™ virtual appliance instance to provide storage for logs generated by managed firewalls. You can add virtual disks to a local log Collector for a Panorama virtual appliance in Panorama mode or for a Dedicated Log Collector. The Panorama virtual appliance on Hyper-V 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 of a size that is not evenly divisible by 2TB because the Panorama virtual appliance partitions logging disks in to 2TB partitions. For example, if you attach a 4TB logging disk, Panorama will create two 2TB partitions. However, you cannot add a 5TB logging disk because the leftover 1TB is not supported as a partition.
