Add Standalone WildFire Appliances to Manage with Panorama
You can manage up to 200 WildFire appliances with a Panorama M-Series or virtual appliance. The 200 WildFire appliance limit is the combined total of standalone appliances and WildFire appliance cluster nodes (if you also Configure a Cluster and Add Nodes on Panorama).
Ensure that Panorama runs at least version 8.0.1, and that any WildFire appliance you add to Panorama also runs at least version 8.0.1.

This is how each WildFire appliance knows which Panorama appliance manages it.
- Configure the IP address or FQDN of the primary Panorama appliance’s management interface:admin@WF-500#set deviceconfig system panorama-server <ip-address | FQDN>
- If you use a backup Panorama appliance for high availability (recommended), configure the IP address or FQDN of the backup Panorama appliance’s management interface:admin@WF-500#set deviceconfig system panorama-server-2 <ip-address | FQDN>
- Register WildFire appliances on the primary Panorama appliance.
