Before installation, decide whether to run the virtual
appliance in Panorama mode, Management Only mode, Log Collector
mode, or Legacy mode (VMware only). Each mode has different resource
requirements, as described in Setup
Prerequisites for the Panorama Virtual Appliance. You must
complete the prerequisites before starting the installation.
As a best practice, install the virtual
appliance in Panorama mode to optimize log storage and report generation.
For details on Panorama and Legacy mode, see Panorama
