Transfer or Update Prisma Access Licenses Between Panorama Appliances
Use the following workflow if you need to transfer Prisma Access licenses from one Panorama appliance to another, for example:
- If you need to transfer production (paid) licenses from one Panorama appliance to another.
- If you are running an evaluation license on an evaluation Panorama appliance. After you upgrade the Prisma Access license to a paid license, you cannot transfer this license to a Panorama that has an evaluation license; in this case, you must transfer the production Prisma Access license from an evaluation to a production Panorama appliance.
Prisma Access automatically preserves all instances and public and loopback IP addresses during the license transfer.
- (Optional) Export a snapshot of your Panorama configuration to a host external to Panorama or to an on-premise firewall.While Prisma Access saves all its infrastructure settings, including public and loopback IP addresses, you need to transfer any Panorama-specific configuration to the new Panorama appliance. You can export your configuration after the license transfer process is complete, but we recommend exporting it before you transfer the licenses as a best practice.
