Install the VM-Series Plugin on Panorama

Install the optional VM-Series plugin on Panorama.
To view and configure cloud integrations deployed on your VM-Series firewalls, the VM-Series plugin must be installed on both Panorama and the VM-Series firewall. The plugin is automatically installed on the firewall, but you must manually install the plugin on Panorama before you can push configurations to your device groups.
The VM-Series plugin supports all clouds, so an upgrade might not apply to your VM-Series firewalls. Before upgrading the plugin, consult the release notes. Update the plugin only when there are changes relevant to your cloud.
  1. Download the VM-Series plugin.
    1. Select
      Panorama
      Plugins

        .
