You can’t resize a virtual disk after adding it to a Panorama virtual appliance running on VMware vCloud Air. Because the Panorama virtual appliance allows only one log storage location, you must replace the virtual disk to modify the log storage capacity.
You will lose the logs on the existing disk when you replace it. One way to preserve the logs is to set up a new Panorama virtual appliance for the new disk (see
Set Up the Panorama Virtual Appliance) and maintain access to the Panorama containing the old disk for as long as you need its logs. A second way to preserve the logs is to copy them from the old disk to the new disk. Copying can take several hours, depending on how many logs the disk currently stores, and Panorama cannot collect logs during the process. Contact Palo Alto Networks Customer Support
for instructions on how to copy logs between disks. A third way to preserve existing logs is to
Configure Log Forwarding from Panorama to External Destinations before you replace the virtual disk.
