and installs the selected version.
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.The 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.

Select the version of the plugin and click

When installing the plugin on Panoramas in an HA pair,
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 are upgrading your version of the VMware NSX plugin,
complete a manual configuration sync.
