Download and install the Panorama Plugin for
VMware NSX. See the Compatibility Matrix before
installing or upgrading your plugin.
If you have a Panorama
HA configuration, repeat this installation process on each Panorama
peer. When installing the plugin on Panorama HA peers, install the
plugin on the passive peer before the active peer. After installing
the plugin on the passive peer, it will transition to a non-functional
state. Installing the plugin on the active peer returns the passive
peer to a functional state.
If you have a standalone Panorama
or two Panorama appliances installed in an HA pair with multiple
plugins installed, plugins might not receive updated IP-tag information
if one or more of the plugins is not configured. This occurs because
Panorama will not forward IP-tag information to unconfigured plugins.
Additionally, this issue can occur if one or more of the Panorama
plugins is not in the Registered or Success state (positive state
differs on each plugin). Ensure that your plugins are in the positive state
before continuing or executing the commands described below.
you encounter this issue, there are two workarounds:
the unconfigured plugin or plugins. It is recommended that you do
not install a plugin that you do not plan to configure right away
You can use the following commands to work around this issue.
Execute the following command for each unconfigured plugin on each
Panorama instance to prevent Panorama from waiting to send updates.
If you do not, your firewalls may lose some IP-tag information.
request plugins dau plugin-name <plugin-name> unblock-device-push yes
can cancel this command by executing:
request plugins dau plugin-name <plugin-name> unblock-device-push no
commands described are not persistent across reboots and must be
used again for any subsequent reboots. For Panorama in HA pair,
the commands must be executed on each Panorama.
