to VM-Series Firewall Boot Mode when a License is Not Available
VM-Series firewalls deployed on GCP support DPDK mode
by default. In previous VM-Series plugin releases, if the firewall
deployed in GCP had more than three interfaces and did not have
a valid license (or couldn’t reach the license server) the firewall
sometimes failed to boot.
A change in default behavior in VM-Series plugin version
1.0.8 addresses this behavior
). If VM-Series plugin version
1.0.8 is installed and the firewall does not have a valid license,
the firewall now successfully boots in Packet_MMAP mode. To run
in DPDK mode, apply a license and reboot your firewall.
