End-of-Life (EoL)
This section lists requirements and limitations for the VM-Series firewall on the Citrix SDX server.
Requirements
You can deploy multiple instances of the VM-Series firewall on the Citrix SDX server. Because each instance of the firewall requires a minimum resource allocation—number of CPUs, memory and disk space—on the SDX server, make sure to conform to the specifications below to ensure optimal performance.
Requirement Details
SDX platforms 11500, 11515, 11520, 11530, 11540, 11542 13500, 14500, 16500, 18500, 20500 22040, 22060, 22080, 22100, 22120 24100, 24150 17550, 19550, 20550, 21550
SDX version 10.1+ 10.1 is not supported; a software version higher than 10.1. is required.
Citrix XenServer version 6.0.2 or later
Minimum System Resources Plan and allocate the total number of data interfaces that you might require on the VM-Series firewall. This task is essential during initial deployment, because adding or removing interfaces to the VM-Series firewall after initial deployment will cause the data interfaces (Eth 1/1 and Eth 1/2) on the VM-Series firewall to re-map to the adapters on the SDX server. Each data interface sequentially maps to the adapter with the lowest numerical value, and this remapping can cause a configuration mismatch on the firewall. The host CPU must be a x86-based Intel or AMD CPU with virtualization extension. Two vCPUs per VM-Series firewall. One will be used for the for the management plane and one for the dataplane. You can add vCPUs in the following combinations: 2, 4, or 8 vCPUs; additional vCPUs are assigned to the dataplane. Two network interfaces: one dedicated for management traffic and one for data traffic. For management traffic, you can use the 0/x interfaces on the management plane or the 10/x interfaces on the dataplane. Assign additional network interfaces for data traffic, as required for your network topology. 4GB of memory (5GB for VM-1000-HV). If you allocate additional memory, it will be used by the management plane only. 40GB of virtual disk space. You can add additional disk space of 40GB or 60 GB on the Citrix SDX server. The additional disk space is used for logging purposes only.
Limitations
The VM-Series firewall deployed on the Citrix SDX server has the following limitations:
Up to 24 total ports can be configured. One port will be used for management traffic and up to 23 can be used for data traffic. Link aggregation is not supported.
