Activate/Retrieve a Firewall Management License when the Panorama
Virtual Appliance is not Internet-connected
How to activate the firewall management license when
the Panorama virtual appliance is not Internet connected.
Before activating and retrieving a firewall
management license on the Panorama virtual appliance, you must Register
Panorama. In order to manage devices on Panorama, you will
need to activate a device management license. The device management
license you activate will determine the number of devices Panorama
can manage. Log Collectors and WildFire appliances are not treated
as managed devices and will not count toward the number of devices
allotted by the device management license. If you are running an
evaluation license and want to apply a license that you purchased,
you must still register and activate/retrieve the purchased license.
upgrading to PAN-OS 8.1, you will be prompted to retrieve a valid
Panorama management license when you first log in to the Panorama web
interface when Panorama has finished rebooting. To activate or retrieve
the valid management license if the Panorama virtual appliance is offline
or unable to reach the Palo Alto Networks update server, you must
get the relevant appliance information for the Panorama virtual
appliance and upload it to the Customer Support web site.
