Configure Prisma Access for Clean Pipe

To set up Prisma Access for Clean Pipe for your tenants, complete the following steps.

Enable Multitenancy and Create a Tenant

To begin the Clean Pipe configuration, you create a multi-tenant deployment in Panorama and create one or more tenants.
  1. Install and activate Prisma Access for Clean Pipe.
    Prisma Access for Clean Pipe requires a separate license, and activating it creates Clean Pipe-specific tabs in the Cloud Services plugin. The procedure you use to install Prisma Access for Clean Pipe is the same as the procedure you use to activate and install a standard Prisma Access license, including installing the Cloud Services plugin.
  2. Enable multitenancy if you have not done so already.
    1. Select
      Panorama
      Cloud Services
      Configuration
      .
    2. Select
      Enable Multitenancy
      (located on the upper right of the page).
    3. Click
      OK
      .
      The
      Tenants
      page displays.
    4. In the
      Options
      area, select
      Clean Pipe
      .
      To configure a tenant for remote networks, mobile users, or both, see Manage Multiple Tenants in Prisma Access.
    5. Enter a
      Name
      for the first tenant.
    6. Create and configure a new
      Access Domain
      for the first tenant and click
      OK
      .
    7. In the
      Clean Pipe
      area, enter a
      Bandwidth (Mbps)
      for
      This Tenant
      .
      Enter a minimum of 100 Mbps for each tenant you create.
    8. Click
      OK
      .
  3. Create zones for the tenant and map those zones for the tenant.
    1. Select
      Network
      Zones
      .
      Make sure that selected the Clean Pipe
      Template
      for the tenant you created (
      cp-tpl-
      tenant
      ).
    2. Create zones for the tenant (for example,
      Trust
      and
      Untrust
      ).
    3. Select
      Panorama
      Cloud Services
      Configuration
      and select the
      Tenant
      from the drop-down list.
    4. Select the
      Clean Pipe
      tab.
    5. Click the gear icon next to
      Zone Mapping
      to edit the settings.
    6. Add
      and
      Remove
      the zones you created to map them to trusted and untrusted zones.
  4. Onboard a new Clean Pipe.
    1. Select
      Panorama
      Cloud Services
      Configuration
      Clean Pipe
      .
    2. Add
      a new Clean Pipe instance for the tenant, entering the following information:
      • Name
        —Specify a name for the clean pipe.
      • Bandwidth
        —Select the Bandwidth to allocate for the clean pipe.
        You can onboard Clean Pipe instances in increments of 100 Mbps, 200 Mbps, 300 Mbps, 400 Mbps, 500 Mbps, 1000 Mbps, 2000 Mbps, 5000 Mbps, and 10000 Mbps. The amount of bandwidth you specify must be within the licensed bandwidth allocation, and it must match the bandwidth of the VLAN attachment you create in the Partner Interconnect.
      • Edge Availability Domain
        —Select the availability domain you want for the clean pipe. You can choose
        1
        ,
        2
        ,
        ANY
        , or
        REDUNDANT
        .
        • Specify
          ANY
          for a non-redundant Clean Pipe deployment.
          Make sure that your cloud provider supports this choice; you must also select
          ANY
          on the cloud provider side of the partner interconnect. If that choice is not available for your cloud provider, make another choice.
        • To specify two VLAN attachments in the same location in an active/backup configuration in the same location, select
          REDUNDANT
          .
          Prisma Access creates two pairing keys for a
          REDUNDANT
          configuration (one for each availability zone), and appends the clean pipe name with
          zone1
          for the first availability zone and
          zone2
          for the second availability zone. For example, if you specify a
          Name
          of
          San Francisco
          , Prisma Access creates two zones named
          San Francisco-zone1
          and
          San Francisco-zone2
          .
        Be sure that you configure the first availability zone (zone1) as the primary zone on your CPE.
        You can also build a pair of clean pipes for a single tenant redundancy in different locations; to do so, specify
        1
        for the first clean pipe in one location and
        2
        for the second clean pipe in a different location.
      • BGP Peer ASN
        —Enter the BGP Autonomous System Number (ASN).
        You can specify either a private or public BGP ASN.
        Make a note of this value; you configure it on the customer edge (CE) router when you complete the Clean Pipe configuration.
      • Location
        —Select the location.
        We recommend that you use the same location that you use when you create the VLAN attachment for the partner interconnect.
      • To enable QoS, select
        QoS
        , then select the QoS Profile to use with the clean pipe. Clean Pipe QoS shapes on ingress.
  5. Add more Clean Pipe instances as required by repeating Step 4.
    Be sure that each additional Clean Pipe uses a different location.
  6. Commit and push your changes to make them active in Prisma Access.
    1. Select
      Commit
      Commit and Push
      and
      Edit Selections
      in the Push Scope.
    2. Select
      Prisma Access
      , then select
      Clean Pipe
      .
    3. Click
      OK
      to save your changes to the Push Scope.
    4. Commit
      and
      Push
      your changes.
  7. Check that your Clean Pipe has been provisioned.
    1. Select
      Panorama
      Cloud Services
      Status
      .
    2. Select the
      Tenant
      from the drop-down list at the top of the page.
    3. Click
      Status
      .
      The Clean Pipe status displays.
    4. Hover over the Clean Pipe
      Config Status
      and wait until the status changes from
      Provisioning in Progress
      to
      Provisioned
      .
      This provisioning can take up to 30 minutes.
  8. Click the
    Network Details
    tab, click the
    Clean Pipe
    radio button, and make a note of the
    Pairing Key
    .
    The
    MSSP CE
    and
    Cloud Router IP
    fields are blank when you start to configure the Clean Pipe. These fields populate after you create the VLAN Attachment when you complete the Clean Pipe configuration.
    If you specified a
    REDUNDANT
    connection, Prisma Access creates two pairing keys, one for each availability zone, and appends the clean pipe name with
    zone1
    for the first availability zone and
    zone2
    for the second availability zone. The following screenshot shows the
    SanFrancisco
    clean pipe with a redundant configuration; Prisma Access has created two pairing keys, one for
    SanFrancisco-zone1
    and one for
    SanFrancisco-zone2
    .
    Be sure that you configure the first availability zone (zone1) as the primary zone on your CPE.

Complete the Clean Pipe Configuration

To complete configuration of Prisma Access for Clean Pipe, you perform configuration in the Partner Interconnect and in Panorama.
Make sure that you can access and configure the CE and cloud routers on the Partner Interconnect (non-Prisma access) side of the Partner Interconnect.
  1. In the Partner Interconnect side of the configuration, create a VLAN attachment, using the
    Pairing Key
    that you retrieved from Panorama.
    For more information about creating VLAN attachments with Partner Interconnects and configuring customer edge (CE) routers to communicate with cloud routers, refer to the Google Cloud documentation at https://cloud.google.com/interconnect/docs/
    Make sure that the location and bandwidth you select matches the
    Location
    you specified in Panorama. The service provider you use for the Partner Interconnect uses the pairing key, along with your requested connection location and capacity, to complete the configuration of your VLAN attachment.
  2. After the connection comes up, return to Panorama, select
    Panorama
    Cloud Services
    Status
    Network Details
    Clean Pipe
    and make a note of the
    MSSP CE
    and
    Cloud Router IP
    addresses.
    These values populate after you enter the
    Pairing Key
    on the other side of the VLAN attachment.
  3. Log in to the CE router and perform the following configuration.
    1. Enter the
      MSSP CE
      address as the local IP address.
    2. Enter the
      Cloud Router IP
      address as the peer IP address.
    3. Enter a BGP ASN that matches the
      BGP Peer ASN
      you entered when you configured the Clean Pipe in Panorama.
      Make sure that you enter these values correctly; you cannot change them.
  4. Check the Clean Pipe status.
    1. In Panorama, select
      Panorama
      Cloud Services
      Status
      , select the
      Tenant
      from the drop-down, and check the Clean Pipe’s
      Status
      .
      See the list of Prisma Access locations for acceptable values.
      The
      Deployment Status
      area allows you to view the progress of onboarding and deployment jobs before they complete, as well as see more information about the status of completed jobs. See Deployment Progress and Status for details.
    2. Select
