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.
  1. Using the local CLI, verify that each WildFire appliance that you want to manage with Panorama runs PAN-OS 8.0.1 or later.

    show system info | match version
    sw-version: 8.0.1-c45 wf-content-version: 702-283 logdb-version: 8.0.15
  2. On each Panorama appliance you want to use to manage WildFire appliances, verify that Panorama runs version 8.0.1 or later:
    Dashboard
    General Information
    Software Version
    displays the running software version.
  3. If you aren’t sure if a WildFire appliance belongs to a WildFire appliance cluster or is a standalone appliance on the local WildFire appliance CLI, check the
    Node mode
    to ensure that the status is
    stand_alone
    and check the
    Application status
    to ensure that the
    global-db-service
    and
    global-queue-service
    indicate
    ReadyStandalone
    .

  4. If the WildFire appliances you want to manage with Panorama are new, check Get Started with WildFire to ensure that you complete basic steps such as confirming your WildFire license is active, enabling logging, connecting firewalls to WildFire appliances, and configuring basic WildFire features.
  5. On the local CLI of each WildFire appliance the Panorama server will manage, configure the IP address of the Panorama server.
    Before you register standalone WildFire appliances to a Panorama appliance, you must first configure the Panorama IP address or FQDN on each WildFire appliance. This is how each WildFire appliance knows which Panorama appliance manages it.
    1. 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>
    2. 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>
  6. Register WildFire appliances on the primary Panorama appliance.
    1. From the Panorama web interface,
      Panorama
      Managed WildFire Appliances
      and
      Add Appliance
      .
    2. Enter the serial number of each WildFire appliance on a separate line. If you do not have a list of serial numbers, on each WildFire appliance, run:
      admin@WF-500>
      show system info | match serial
      serial: 012345678901
      Several local CLI commands display the WildFire appliance serial number, including
      show cluster membership
      .
    3. Click
      OK
      .
      If it is available, information about configuration that is already committed on the WildFire appliances displays, such as IP address and software version.
  7. (
    Optional
    ) Import WildFire appliance configurations into the Panorama appliance.
    1. Select the appliances that have configurations you want to import from the list of managed WildFire appliances.
    2. Import Config
      .
    3. Select
      Yes
      .
      Importing configurations updates the displayed information and makes the imported configurations part of the Panorama appliance candidate configuration.
    4. Commit to Panorama
      to make the imported WildFire appliance configurations part of the Panorama running configuration.
  8. Configure or confirm the configuration of the WildFire appliance interfaces.
    Each WildFire appliance has four interfaces:
    Management
    (Ethernet0),
    Analysis Network Environment
    (Ethernet1),
    Ethernet2
    , and
    Ethernet3
    .
    1. Select
      Panorama
      Managed WildFire Appliances
      and select a WildFire appliance.
    2. Select
      Interfaces
      .
    3. Select an interface to configure or edit it. You can enable the interface, set the speed and duplex, the IP address and netmask, the default gateway, the MTU, the DNS server, the link state, and the
      Management Services
      for each interface. You can also
      Add
      permitted IP addresses so that an interface accepts traffic only from specified addresses.
      The
      Analysis Network Environment
      ,
      Ethernet2
      , and
      Ethernet3
      interfaces support only
      Ping
      as a
      Management Services
      option.
      The
      Management
      interface supports
      Ping
      ,
      SSH
      , and
      SNMP
      as
      Management Services
      options. In addition, the
      Management
      interface supports proxy server configuration in case a direct connection to the internet is not possible.
    4. Click
      OK
      after you configure or confirm the settings.
  9. Commit the configuration on the Panorama appliance and push it to the appliance or to multiple appliances.
    1. Commit and Push
      .
    2. If there are configurations on the Panorama appliance that you do not want to push,
      Edit Selections
      to choose the appliances to which you push configurations. The pushed configuration overwrites the running configuration on the WildFire appliance.
  10. Verify the configuration.
    1. Select
      Panorama
      Managed WildFire Appliances
      .
    2. Check the following fields:
      • Connected
        —State is
        Connected
        .
      • Role
        —Each WildFire appliance’s role is
        Standalone
        .
      • Config Status
        —Status is
        In Sync
        .
      • Last Commit State
        Commit succeeded
        .
