Addressed Issues in VM-Series Plugin 1.0.4

The following list describes issues addressed in the VM-Series plugin 1.0.4.


An intermittent issue with VM-Series on Azure where interface mapping is incorrect when Azure accelerated networking was enabled.
This issue is fixed in VM-Series plugin version 1.0.4. You must install the plugin and reboot the firewall to address interface mapping when Azure accelerated networking is enabled.


When a VM-Series firewall in FIPS mode is upgraded to PAN-OS 9.0.1 or 9.0.2, you cannot log in to the firewall using your existing login credentials.
This issue is fixed in PAN-OS 9.0.3 that has the VM-Series plugin version 1.0.4. If using FIPS mode, use PAN-OS 9.0.3.
—If you do not want to upgrade to PAN-OS 9.0.3, after you enable FIPS mode on the firewall running PAN-OS 8.1, add another administrator before you upgrade to PAN-OS 9.0 and commit your changes. Then upgrade the VM-Series firewall to PAN-OS 9.0.0 and login with the username and password for the user that you just added.


The authentication key (client secret) associated with the Active Directory application required for setting up the VM-Series firewall in an HA configuration, is now encrypted on the firewall and on Panorama.
Because the key is now encrypted, the minimum version of the VM-Series plugin that you must install on Panorama and the managed VM-Series firewalls on Azure is version 1.0.4. Without this version of the plugin, you cannot centrally manage the firewalls from Panorama.
